Clear Creek Cherry Brandy
Clear Creek // Oregon, USA
Sweet cherries from Oregon and Washington are crushed, fermented, and distilled at Clear Creek Distillery founded in 1985. This is their take on German-style cherry schnapps, also called Kirschwasser. The spirit is bottled without aging in 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 this Clear Creek Cherry Brandy 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."
