Quarter Cask
Pear Brandy

This delicate pear brandy is the perfect springtime sip.

We sourced a distinct, sweet pear variety called Xenia and allowed a natural fermentation process. Double distillation in traditional copper stills yielded a refreshing brandy, which we then matured in second-fill American oak quarter casks. The result is a mellow combination of aromas: morning dew and green pears with hints of blossom honey and spice.

Our story

Brigljević Distillery is a boutique distillery from Croatia dedicated to crafting fine spirits since 2002. 

We’re artists on a quest for exceptional flavors and we proudly nurture an artisanal approach to spirit-making.

Our approach

We combine the best of Scottish, French, and Croatian production methods to create full-bodied spirits with distinctive aromas.

 

We utilize natural fermentation with ambient yeast only. After double distillation in traditional copper pot stills, all spirits mature in carefully selected casks.

Cask maturation is essential in developing the richness and complexity of our spirits. That is why we have built an elaborate maturation system with various casks, sourced from all around the world.

Our footprint

We source all raw ingredients from local fruit growers, winemakers, and brewers who share our sustainability principles, and supply us with the best of what nature can give.

 

Our distillery production footprint is naturally very low: our copper pot stills are powered by recycled wood chips, whereas all organic waste from distillation is repurposed as compost for our garden.
