• Clear Creek Pear Brandy


    The folks at Clear Creek Distillery in Oregon grow these pears inside the bottle, scrub the bottle and fruit by hand, and pour in their subtle eau de vie.

    I found out about them on a road trip to Portland with our Mighty Junior editor, Melissa Summers. Her husband warned her not to come home without a few bottles, because he uses the brandy to make unstoppable pear sidecars. Now he can get his fix online.

    (Bottle sans pear is $40.)
