This Brandy is distilled from fine Pacific Northwest wines. We then barrel-age it in old and new French (Limousin) Oak. The result is a naturally amber colored brandy with a nice nose and clean finish and a very rich, full taste. It is similar to a good regional brandy like Cognac or Armagnac and is wonderful to serve after dinner as you would a fine Cognac or use in recipes.
A genuine artisan distillery reflects the best of the natural and agricultural resources of its region. Clear Creek Distillery has succeeded in doing this, making world-class eau de vie and grappa since 1985. At Clear Creek we have married European traditional brandy-making techniques with the finest fruit from Pacific Northwest orchards to produce fruit eaux de vie, grappas, and wine brandy. We use the traditional European pot still along with techniques learned in Alsace and Switzerland. No colors or flavors are ever added to our brandies. The distinctive “nose”, or initial smell of the brandy in a snifter, is the result of careful fermentation and distillation of perfectly ripe fruit. You will taste only the clear and fiery essence of the Pacific Northwests finest fruits.
