Mathilde Poire Pear Liqueur
We use the Bon-Chrétien Williams pear, also called
Bartlett, to make Mathilde Poire. When ripe, it boasts a golden skin and a very
tasty and juicy flesh. In order to extract as much as possible from the pears,
we press the fruits into a juice that is fermented before the final
The pear distillate is then enhanced with a touch of
quince, a pear-like fruit with an intense aroma. This particular step
intensifies the pear flavor. A one-week maceration process ensues that, in
turn, produces a fresh and luscious pear liqueur.
Mathilde fruit liqueurs are handcrafted French spirits
produced from our cherished forefathers’ recipes. Today, Maison Ferrand
painstakingly oversees the production of Mathilde liqueurs and strives to
transmit its ancestral savoir-faire, year after year. The farmers who grow
the fruits for Mathilde are guided by traditional farming techniques and
harvest only the freshest fruits at their peak ripeness to ensure we capture
the most palatable flavors.
The result is a fancy liqueur from France, wonderfully
adaptable for mixing in cocktails, using in baking and cooking like our
grandmothers did, drizzling on fruits and desserts, mixing with soda water and
so many more variations.
