Clear Creek Blue Plum Brandy (Slivovitz) .750L Oregon


Blue Plum Brandy, known as Slivovitz in much of Eastern Europe, in France as Quetsch and in Germany as Zwetschgenwasser, is pot distilled from a pure fermented mash of Italian Blue plums grown in the Pacific Northwest. We make it much as it has been made in Europe for centuries and believe the result is smoother, more aromatic, and more sophisticated than any European Blue Plum Brandy. It makes a great sorbet.

Our Blue Plum Brandy has received many gold medals starting in 2004 at the U.S. Slivovitz competition – even in years we haven’t entered. Under their judging criteria, they state, “Clear Creek Blue Plum Brandy is simply the standard by which all other slivovitz is judged.”

U.S. Slivovitz Festival, “Best glass aged slivovitz in the world” 2004, 2005 and 2006 (first entered in 2004)

This kept winning the gold medal at the U.S. Slivovitz Festival so in 2006 it became the comparison by which all entries are judged.

“Blue plum offers a beautifully sweet and delicate aroma of herbs, anise and fruit…” Eric Asimov, The New York Times, August 15, 2007
