St. George has basically decided to subsidize their amazing fruit eau-de-vie program and offer a full bottle of their deliciously pure pear spirit for the same price as they once sold in a half bottle size. Dozens of pounds of pears go into each bottle, so you're basically paying for the fruit, let alone the expertly crafted distillation. A true revelation of artisan-ship and the test by which a serious distillery should define themselves.
The legendary Black Forest producer is finally at K&L. The cherry "schnapps" is class Kirschwasser in every way. The fruit is vibrant and clean with the alcohol in perfect balance to the concentration of cherry. Thank goodness someone is making sure this leaves Germany and makes it over to us!
92 points Wine Enthusiast: "The bouquet smells enticingly of fresh cherries, cherry pit, limestone and cooking spice. Entry is ripe and seductively sweet, with touches of spice; the midpalate explodes with juicy cherry and cherry compote tastes, supported and balanced by mineral. Concludes with a lovely rush of ripe cherry flavor." (12/2008) K&L Notes: Produced from the small black cherries of the mountainous region around Lake Zug in Switzerland, Etter packs the essense of 10 pounds of this unique fruit into one 375ml bottle of kirsch. The spirit is allowed to mellow for 1-2 years in tank befo... Read More »
A beautiful and unique Eau de Vie from Steve McCarthy's Oregon distillery, Clear Creek. Inspired by an obscure Alsatian distillate called Eau de Vie de Bourgeons de Sapin, this tree spirit was 10 years in the making. McCarthy infused a clear brandy with springtime buds from a Douglas Fir, then redistilled it, then infused it again with more buds. The liquor is then strained and bottled. Greenish in hue, this smells and tastes like the woods. Wow! Spiced and pure with juniper, forest floor, fresh wood, Christmas tree and sweet vanilla, long and quite amaz... Read More »
Wine Enthusiast: "Made with a whopping 40 pounds of Pacific Northwest berries per bottle, this clear eau de vie has a malty, funky aroma, with just a berry-ish tinge. On the palate, flavors are on the floral, waxy side, with faint berry notes woven throughout. (KN)" (12/2014)
The spectacular Double Zero Eau De Vie de Cidre from Cider Master Cyril Zang is without a doubt one of the world's great white spirits. This small cult producer of Cider is basically not available and his Eau De Vie has been the stuff of legend for years. Now it's finally upon us and absolutely as delicious special as you'd expect. Cyril partnered with illustrious Jean Roger Groult to create this unique pure distillate of Calvados Apples. Using more than 30 varietals of apples, primarily bitter-sweet with a bit more sweet than sour to balance it all out,... Read More »
Coppersea is a small farm distillery located in New York's Hudson Valley that uses only 100% locally sourced ingredients to produce its incredible spirits. Whereas we've seen similarly minded micro-distillers in the market before, never have we tasted spirits quite this phenomenal from a distillery doing everything by hand. 100% of their malting is done in-house using the traditional floor-malting method. The fruit eau de vies from Coppersea are nothing short of astonishing.

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "The initial bouquet features scents of ripe, juicy, just-picked raspberries; following aeration the aroma turns jammy and concentrated, balanced by a brambly quality. Entry highlights more of the ripe raspberry fruit than jamminess; the midpalate features solid, authentic raspberry flavor with high acidity. Ripe aftertaste works well." (12/2008)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "The opulent bouquet features scents of pear fruit and nutmeg. Entry is ripe, properly acidic, tart to off dry and balanced; the midpalate is pleasingly fruity, a touch baked and a bit minerally. Ends up medium-sweet and tasting of peel and fruit meat. Elegant, true to the source and concentrated." (12/2008)
