Single Variety Pear Spirits Special Editions

A special edition pear spirit made with only one variety of vintage perry pear, either Dymock Red Pear or Speart Pear.

There is a very restricted number of these pear trees, which makes these spirits almost unique and very sought after.

The fruit is grown and fermented on Charles Martell's own Gloucestershire farm in the heart of fruit growing country before being distilled with care in the farm's restored 17th century distillery.

With only 28 bottles of the Dymock Red and 6 bottles of the Speart Pear left, this makes them one of the rarest spirits in the world!

The Dymock Red Pear - Also known as Thurston's Red, Billy Thurston, this variety is critically rare. Mr W.Thurston at the Whitehouse, Dymock is credited with starting this variety. Being a medium to light cropping variety it was used for perry making, with greenish yellow or yellowish skin with red flush. The one remaining tree was tracked down by its distinctive tree growth habit followed by reference to its fruit. More trees have been propagated from this 'mother' tree and there are now a number growing at Hunts Court (Extract from Pears of Gloucestershire by Charles Martell 2011 & 2013).

Speart Pear - Also known as Spurt pear or Spirit pear, this variety is also critically rare, numbering a total world population of maybe just 6 trees. Whilst used latterly as a perry pear its name indicates it may have been used specifically for distilling in the past. If this was indeed the 'spirit pear' this could indicate that this variety was particularly suited to distilling. But, 'Speart' is also an unusual surname.

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.
