Big Bottom Distilling released an Oregon Pear Brandy, which is the first of the two fruit brandies set to release in 2015. The Oregon Pear Brandy is 80 proof and retails in Oregon at $44.95 for a 750-ml bottle.
The brandy is made from a blend of Asian pears that were grown and hand-harvested locally from the Willamette Valley. Exhibiting a fresh ripe Asian pear nose, the brandy unveils sweet and earthy characters while finishing with some moderate spice, the company says. Oregon Apple Brandy is set to release later this fall.
