How did they get the pear into that bottle. I understand the ship in a bottle thing is done by assembling the model one piece at a time, but the pear comes already assembled! :icon_scratch:

They tie the empty bottle around the blossom before the pear starts to grow. When the pear is fully developed, they remove the bottle and fill with the brandy.

Is that an actual drink?
It is an actual drink. It's generally served as an after dinner drink. While brandy is usually made with grapes, this is simply made with pears. Some of the more common non - grape brandies are plum brandy (Slivovitz) and cherry Brandy (Kirschwasser).

The colonists made brandy with apples. Of course, we could always opt for Goldwasser. Some prefer to wear jewelry made of gold then there are those who like to drink it.
