It’s made by the Maison Roullet-Fransac in Chermignac, France (Chermignac is in the heart of the Cognac region.) The company was founded in 1838 and is still family owned. Roullet-Fransac also makes cognacs and the liqueur called Bauchant.
Poirelle comes in a tall frosted glass bottle shaped like a standard 750 ml wine bottle.
The alcohol content is 28% abv.
Can be drunk straight up at room temperature or on ice.
