Poireau

Poireau

A French name which marks the long association of the Martell family with northwest France and the west of England. A French dictionary will tell you that poireau means a leek. But in vernacular French it means pear spirit which is ‘cut’ with pressed perry pears.

It is deceptively simple in its make-up yet it has probably the most complex flavours of all our drinks. It contains only the product of vintage pears which grow on the farm here and absolutely nothing else. There are not many alcoholic drinks on the market which can make that claim today.

The spirit is bottled in our distillery at cask strength of about 20% ABV. The exact level varies from cask to cask. We do not ‘adjust’ the level of alcohol which is marked on the individual bottle.

This is a ‘straight from the bottle’ drink which needs no mixing.

Chill it a little in summer and take it at ambient temperature during the winter.

This cheese is probably the best I e ever tasted, only lasted me a couple of days as everytime I opened my fridge door the smell hit me and temptation set in, Best to leave for an hour or so in the warmth to let the flavour really come out.

Having tried the two speciality Pear spirits from Charles Martell's distillery, I thought I'd give some of the other offerings a taste. The Jack High cider spirit is my favourite and I'd rate it against any Calvados I've tried to date (and I've tried quite a few!).

I could happily drink this anytime :-)

These limited edition, speciality spirits from Charles Martell are well packaged and presented. They would make an excellent gift for the adventurous drinker or for those people who seem to have already tried every other drink out there.

For my birthday last year I decided to treat myself to a bottle of each variety, both the Dymock Red and the Speart. I enjoyed them both very much.

The level of flavour in both is good, especially when you consider how early in the distillation process the pear flavours come over and I was expecting there to be more of a heads burn but was pleasantly surprised. The flavours are more complex and 'peary' than I was expecting with a marked difference between the two different varieties.

If I had to pick a favourite, it would be the Red Dymock, but that's just my personal preference and I'd be over the moon to be given either as a present.
