Clear Creek Distillery

Founded in 1985 by Steve McCarthy, Clear Creek Distillery in Oregon produces some of the world’s best eaux de vie and liqueurs.  Though unavailable in Ontario (and all of Canada other than BC), the Slivovitz, Kirschwasser and Mirabelle eaux de vie are totally worth the effort of bringing them back from a trip to US.All their products are made from Pacific Northwest fruit and traditional pot stills.  It really is an incredible experience to open one of these bottles and take in the intense and floral fruit aromas.  I regularly drink them super-chilled in a tiny liqueur glass and don’t think now I could stand wasting a drop in a cocktail.
