A vast array of fine brandies, including my favorite, Grappa, ranging from traditional to wine infused. Liqueurs and Eaux de Vie brandy, featuring douglas fir (yes!). Tastings available (5 choices for $5), including most that are for sale. Tours can be had if pre-arranged.

We did the $5 tasting of five offerings, from grappa to brandy to liqueurs. What fun! Educational too! We were in and out within a half hour and the young female working in the tasting room was very knowledgable. A cool side trip!

You may be familiar with wine tasting, but have you ever done a tasting of some of the harder stuff? Well, if not, you should stop by Clear Creek for such an experience. We stopped by on a weekday and had the place to ourselves for a little while. The guy pouring was very helpful and gave us a hard... More

Clear Creek Distillery was on our "to do" list when we visited Portland. A short walk out of Knob Hill, the distillery had a nice tasting area and offered a variety of fruit brandies, liqueurs, and grappas. Tasting is limited to five varieties per person, and there is a $5 fee to taste which is waived if you decide to... More

I visited this wonderful Distillery and owner Steve McCarthy was in the tasting room at the time. He took the time out of his busy day and gave me a little tour of the property. I was very impressed with the pride that he has for his products. Mr McCarthy is a farmer first and then a distiller. The family... More

We stopped in to the distillery to see the large selection of products they have on offer. The distillery has a range of brandies, grappas and liqueurs. The pear brandy and Oregon brandy were excellent. The liqueurs, which are much sweeter, were also quite good but very different in alcohol content and uses. The tasting is free which is a... More

We stopped at Clear Creek Distillery for a tasting based on good reviews and some articles that had been written. The lady who was doing the tastings told us a little bit about each product, but didn't go out of her way to educate us the company or backgrounds. She mentioned the liquors would be good on ice cream, but... More

If you are into fruit spirits this is a must. I was invited for a tasting and was happy to go, this is incredible. Steve gave us a complete tour and shared what it takes to make a Top shelf Spirit.

I've been meaning to get here for many years and finally made time today, boy am I glad I did and boy am I disappointed it took me so long. I was welcomed to the tasting room by none other than the owner Steve who founded Clear Creek in 1985 having enjoyed eau d' vie when spending time in Europe... More
