A pioneer in what has become an internationally acclaimed local distillery scene, this producer of high-quality spirits is tucked down a quiet street in an industrial area just north of Nob Hill. Just ring the bell and someone will unlock the wrought-iron gate and let you into a cozy tasting room where you can sample Clear Creek's world-famous Oregon apple and pear brandies, distinctive Douglas Fir Eau de Vie, and other liqueurs and grappas. If the peaty, highly prized
McCarthy's Oregon Single Malt Whiskey is available, grab a bottle—they sell out fast.

They make amazing stuff. 80 proof and all made out of Northwest fruit! Everyone is so welcoming and try to make it one of the tours if you can! But call ahead because they fill up. I think the website is clearcreekdistillery.com
