This is classic eau de vie de poire. They use Williams (Bartlett) pears from their own orchards in Parkdale, Oregon. They crush and ferment the whole pear and then distill the pure fruit mash in German-made pot stills. It takes about 30 pounds of pears to make one 750ml bottle of Pear Brandy. This is still Clear Creek's best product and best seller. The pear nose is intense, the taste is strong, but pure, and the aftertaste is clean with a surprisingly strong hint of pear. In warmer parts of the country and in the summer, it should be served chilled.
