Fresh Oregon and Washington sweet cherries are crushed, fermented, and distilled into clear, powerful Kirschwasser (Cherry Schnapps) in the traditional German fashion. The subtle cherry flavors and intriguing vanilla and almond aromas come only from the cherries and their pits (“stones”), as does the alcohol.

It is a powerful kirsch masterfully crafted with some of the best cherries the Pacific Northwest has to offer.

No colors, flavors, or sugars added. No sulfites added.

“Kirsch, made of Oregon and Washington cherries, seems muted at first but comes alive in a subtle, minty aroma that evolves into the essence of sugared cherries.” Eric Asimov, The New York Times, August 15, 2007
