Pairs of Pears is the After-Dinner Drink You Need in Your Liquor Cabinet

The packaging for this pear brandy is absolutely exquisite. Long Table Distillery has a limited batch of the spirit, and they turned to David Arias for a design that would tell a bit of the story of how it came to be and give you a sense of the delightful flavor inside.

“After having designed Long Table Distillery’s liqueur labels, they recently came back with another interesting challenge with an equally interesting story to design a label for a very limited batch of VSOP reserved, cask-aged pear brandy.”

“For LTD, rarely does an opportunity to acquire an exquisite five-year aged pear brandy come their way…”

“Hand-picked from the finest Oregon grown Bartlett pears, this Limited-Edition Reserve Pear Brandy was carefully crafted by Shae de Jaray, of Deep Cove Brewers and Distillers, then rested in Pinot Noir barrels for a period of five years. In that time, it was moved to North Vancouver and then lovingly transferred between distilling licenses to Long Table Distillery in order to avoid a government mandated disposal (their spirits can only be made from BC agricultural inputs). Long Table Distillery’s license allowed for greater flexibility and permitted them to save this spirit. A pair of distilleries who joined together to rescue the outcome of these pears—a pair of pears, if you will.”
