Clear Creek Distillery Pear Brandy is made in the tradition of France’s classic Eau de Vie de Poire Williams. Bartlett pears are grown just an hour away in the Hood River Valley are crushed at their absolute peak of ripeness. This whole fruit mash is carefully fermented, and the spirit is distilled in our German-made pot stills. It takes 20 pounds of pears to make one 750ml bottle of Pear Brandy. The pear nose is intense, the taste is strong but pure, and the aftertaste is clean with a surprisingly strong taste of pear. It is lovely served chilled.

My Opinion: I really enjoyed the flavor of the pear that is spicy, fruity, zesty, and a little tart. The scent was truly amazing as well and this is perfect to serve this holiday season at any event that you may have.
