Clear Creek Douglas Fir Brandy...$44.99 / 375ml
Inspired by the obscure Alsatian spirit Eau de Vie de Bourgeons de Sapin made from pine buds, our Douglas Fir Brandy is truly a tree in a bottle. It took ten years of experimentation to successfully capture the true essence of Oregon’s state tree.
This brandy, also known as eau de vie is made from bright green springtime Douglas fir buds, hand picked, and immediately infused in our clear very delicate and aromatic brandy. This maceration is then re-distilled and re-infused with fresh new buds, giving the spirit its vibrant green hue from the Douglas fir’s natural chlorophyll. No artificial color has been added.
“Spiced and pure with juniper, forest floor, fresh wood, Christmas tree and sweet vanilla; long and quite amazing.” Anthony Dias Blue, Patterson’s Tasting Panel, 2007
“…the resulting eau de vie is a penetrating blast of forest aroma. On the palate it has the herbal, stomach settling effect of an Italian digestif.” Eric Asimov, The New York Times, August 15, 2007
