A divine pear liqueur, enhanced by a Massenez pear eau-de-vie aged for more than 8 years.
AN ICONIC LIQUEUR
Created in 1870, the Distillerie Massenez has since perfected its first Poire Williams liqueur recipe. Unlike other bitter orange or vegetable-based great French liqueurs, the Poire Williams liqueur still lacked a great name. With Golden Eight®, Bernard Baud, Chairman of the Grandes Distilleries Peureux, owner of Massenez, aims to fill that void: "Its name should clearly evoke the quality of the product. “Eight" is the age of the youngest Poire Williams eau-de-vie forming part of the blend and Golden Eight® characterizes its magnificent amber color with hints of gold".
Made up of a blend of exceptional 8-year-old and older Poire Williams eaux-de-vie, Golden Eight® enhances the purity of the fruit. To equip it with a gourmet personality, the Master Liquorists of the Distillerie Massenez have completed this outstanding blend with a vanilla note and a touch of real caramel, obtained from melted sugar and some closely guarded aromatic secrets.
Enjoy tasting Golden Eight in its amber color with hints of warm, reddish gold; a divine promise of a truly great liqueur...
Right from the beginning, as soon as you open the bottle, the powerful, warm fragrance of perfectly ripe Williams pear is released with an inkling of warm, gourmet notes make it very tempting to taste.
And then... A sweet symphony emerges, generous and sensual, with all the aromas of a freshly picked pear, almost candied or in the form of jam, before revealing delicate, caramelized vanilla notes, merging into the light cascades of the eau-de-vie that brought it to life: a Massenez Pear Liqueur aged for more than 8 years.
A unique, exclusive signature of the Massenez distillery since 1870, the recipe for which has been a closely guarded secret among master liquorists.
JUST CHILLED OR ON THE ROCKS
A genuine liqueur at 25% vol., Golden Eight® must follow a tasting ritual in order to reveal all the aromas and the complexity. It is not to be consumed at room temperature, but rather on ice or chilled in a whiskey glass with the ideal shape to emit the irresistible scent.
