• Clear Creek Half Bottle Pear Liqueur

* 375 ML. The taste is surprising complex, smooth, slightly floral, with a little bit of acidity, and a pear finish that lingers long after you set down the glass.  

Because the pear is a relatively simple sweet fruit, without the tartness of a berry, the Pear Liqueur was the trickiest liqueur to make. Good balance is important. We wanted to avoid making it overly sweet, which is easy to do with the Bartlett pear, or overly fiery with alcohol. Clear Creek is famous for its Eau de Vie de Poire (pear brandy). Because the base of the Pear Liqueur is our Pear Brandy, you get that same beautiful nose of a perfectly ripe pear for which our Poire is famous. Distillery Notes

Steve McCarthy started Clear Creek Distillery twenty-nine years ago because he wanted to find the best use for the fruit from the McCarthy family’s orchard. During his travels in Europe he became acquainted with a number of traditional European spirits, among them an eau de vie made from Williams Pear. Steve knew that with the wonderful fruit we grow in the Pacific Northwest he could make brandy just as good as that he had tried in Europe; that is the origin of Clear Creek Distillery. The name Clear Creek comes from the creek that runs through the pear orchard in Parkdale, Oregon.
