Drink Review: St George Pear Brandy

This unaged fruit brandy from the USA has a “wonderfully clean and intense pear taste” because 30 pounds of Bartlett pears go into each 750ml bottle. The fruit is fermented for ten days and then distilled in a copper still in a single run. This process means that you can still savour the taste and smell of fresh pears as you sip it.

St George Pear Brandy Review:

The bottle design is very contemporary and has an illustrated touch that suits the product perfectly. The brand logo is beautifully drawn, but I feel the colours are a bit faded. The typeface looks good and is easy to read. If the bottle was a little tidier than it would be a real design classic.

The brand name is easy to remember because it is bold and catchy, but the slogan is a bit strange (Any of a dozen or more small pears, four if you fancy them). The problem is that an English phrase does not translate well into any other language, and in this case it has been translated from the French “Aux Poires”. The bottle does not mention the country of origin, I can only guess that it is from the USA. There is no scottish or Irish product (because the Scots prepare pears with whisky and the Irish with Potcheen).

This pear brandy from St George is a totally different taste to its cousin from France. It has lots of new fruits to play with, yet the apple brandy remains the sauce for the goose. It is aged in the same way as Calvados or Applejack, with a touch of blackcurrant to add to the colour and flavour. It’s enhanced by French oak for a unique taste. St George is a great drink when ice cold or on the rocks so try it with a dark chocolate dip.
