Clear Creek Kirschwasser
Clear Creek // Oregon, USA
Clear Creek crushes, ferments, and distills sweet cherries from Oregon and Washington for their take on German-style cherry schnapps. The spirit is bottled without aging on oak.
Eau-de-VieMost often referring to clear, unaged brandy distilled from wine from any type of fruit. Some styles are macerated with skins after distillation which provide color.
"The aroma on Clear Creek Kirschwasser is intense, with earthy, nutty notes and a strong whiff of alcohol. It's a bit more gentle on the palate, with more flavors of cherry and almond coming through. It's not the most approachable eau de vie, but its appeal increases with familiarity."
