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.
