Schladerer Williams Pear was first made in 1957 and quickly became one of the most important producta in the Schladerer range. It is made using pears from the local region (Markgräflerland, Breisgau, Kaiserstuhl), France (Ardèche, Drôme, Isère and Savoie) and Italy (Trentino and Lombardy).
The most full-bodied fruits grow at altitudes of 300 to 800 meters. To help avoid damage during transportation, they are harvested shortly before ripening and turning green to yellow or red. The fruit is generally mashed three to four days after arrival at the distillery.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 09/04/2015


(sample bottle certificate No. 4122) Crystal clear.


Aromatic ripe pear flesh and green pear skin.


Pear skin rather than soft juicy flesh but delightfully so. Dry, wonderfully clean and fresh with light peppery spirit.


Long finish with pear juice and pear skin. Dry with some woody tannins.


Dry and complex. Wonderfully aromatic and superbly clean. Bone dry finish.
