Pyrus Piraster is a sort of pear used for distillation of the Ducat brandy. Ripe fruit is not picked from the tree, but picked from the ground when it falls in its full ripeness. After the controlled distillation, the brandy is aged for at least 5 years in two types of barrels. Therefore, it has mild yellow colour and pleasant aroma. Pirus piraster grants the brandy full taste and a bit of pungency.
