Llewellyn’s Premium Irish Pear Juice

This is a ‘limited edition’ juice, made in small quantities, and generally only available at our Market Stall.  Pears are unfortunately a rarity in Ireland because of our relatively cool climate, but when they do produce a crop, they are wonderful! We did not have enough pears in 2012 to make any pear juice, but the 2013 crop gave us enough to make a batch, so we have it in stock again. It is made from the varieties Williams, Durondeau, Conference, Concorde and Gieser Wildeman.

The juice is cloudy with a pale yellow colour and a rich thick texture. Typical of pears, the natural acidity is low, and this brings the natural sweetness of the juice to the fore.  For those who like a ‘tangy bite’ to their juices, the pear juice might seem too sweet, but for people who really like sweet fruit like ripe pears, or for those who have a low tolerance to acidic fruits and juices, this might be the perfect treat, even if only occasionally.
