Clear Creek is a distillery located in Oregon established in 1985 by Steve McCarthy. He creates eau-de-vies, grappas, and liqueurs, but his single malt whiskey is what he can't keep stocked. The labor of love, however, lay with his fruit-based spirits which deserve more attention than they get. The fruit used for this eau-de-vie is organically grown Mirabelle plums from the King Estate near Eugene, Oregon. It is sold in 375ml sized bottles.

Tasting Notes

"This lively spirit shimmers and has an aroma and taste of yellow plums and unripe peach. The eau-de-vie is pure and transparent with the ripe fruit and ends with a slight bitter orange taste. The length on the finish is solid and clean."
