L'ALCOOL / LES VINS
Based on the traditional eau de vie de Poire Williams, Clear Creek Distillery's pear eau de vie is its most popular product, and it also sells a limited edition version with a pear grown inside the bottle.
Clear Creek Distillery was founded in 1986 by Stephen McCarthy in order to begin producing distilled spirits from the abundant fruit crop of Oregon. Though Oregon wine was already internationally respected by the 1980s, true European-style fruit brandies were still considered very unusual in the United States at the time, and few American companies produced them. Today Clear Creek Distillery is one of the best known American eau de vie distilleries.
