McCarthy's Oregon Single Malt Whiskey

When Clear Creek Distillery, best known for their eaux de vie and liqueurs, set out to make a whiskey, people knew this wouldn’t be just another rye or bourbon. Instead, the distillers set out to make a whiskey in the style of a peaty Islay scotch whisky, and the resulting spirit closely resembles the legendary Lagavulin. They source their malted barley from the same place those famous distilleries in Scotland do, and their fermentation is handled by fellow Oregonians Widmer Brothers Brewing.

Clear Creek Distillery was founded in 1985 by legendary distiller Stephen McCarthy, making it one of the oldest craft distilleries in the United States. Located in Portland, Oregon, it is known for its wide range of fruit brandies, liqueurs, grappa, and even this creative single malt.
