Owner Stephen McCarthy was traveling in Europe when he realized that the Williams pear used in Europe to make eau de vie was very closely related to a Pacific Northwest pear. His fruit brandies and eau de vies get their name from a creek running through the pear orchard where they source those very same Oregon pears, not far from Portland. His Alsatian stills are worth a visit, and the tasting room allows you to sample some of the less obvious products, like the Eau de Vie of Douglas Fir, which evokes green, verdant forests and lush Oregon earth.
