Go for the whiskey stay for the brandy

We went there solely to try their famous Scotch style whiskey. However we discovered a whole new vice by trying their wonderful brandies. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

We skipped the more popular Distillery Row on the other side of the river for this quaint distillery with liqueurs derived from Oregon fruits. We specifically went to try the single malt whisky they offer, McCarthy's, known to be in the vein of some of the Islay (Scotland) distillers. While a young whiskey, it had the peatiness we come to... More

I did the $5 tasting, it was fun. They offered a good variety of fruity grape, brandy and liqueurs. However, they don't have whisky available for tasting but buying only, great disappointment :(

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
