Pairs Of Pears
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.
