Clear Creek Distillery
Clear Creek Distillery’s Origins
Clear Creek Distillery was founded in 1985 with a vision to use the bountiful fruits of the Pacific Northwest to create fruit-based spirits that rivaled the best of their European counterparts. Using old-world techniques and sourcing ingredients from the local orchards and fresh water springs of Mount Hood in the Oregon countryside, Clear Creek became one of the first craft distilleries in the United States. Now you can discover one of the Northwest’s unique “orchard to glass” treasures. Clear Creek’s fruit brandies and liqueurs are distilled in small batches using traditional copper pot stills. It takes 15 kilograms of pears to create just one bottle of Clear Creek’s flagship (Williams) pear brandy. Experience the authentic taste of locally grown and hand-crafted fruit spirits, the essence of pure fruit lovingly crafted to create exceptional products.
