Bartlett pears are the classic brandy pear, known for their piercing pear aroma. This large, juicy pear is irresistible for eating, and has a marvelous sugar content for converting to alcohol. In the fall we can have four bins of bartlett, each containing 900 pounds of pears. Entering the distillery, you are flooded with fragrance!
We also occasionally make a comice pear brandy, which has a sharper edge than the bartlett and appeals to whiskey drinkers in particular.
