Fall comes with Star Crimson Liqueuer
We’ve been across the aisle from each other for several months now at the Portland Farmers Market. During peach season we purchased 15 cases of delicious, juicy peaches from their stand to make a barrel of Peach Rock & Rye for next year. A few weeks later, gorgeous Star Crimson Pears.
We made the Star Crimson Pear liqueur in September at 40 proof in 375 ml bottles. We are only selling these at the Farmers Markets and at our tasting room. The Star Crimson pears come from Packer Orchards in Hood River. Established in 1924, Packer Orchards is a 4th generation sustainable family farm, farming over 100 acres across the valley.
The spirit for the liqueur is a Bartlett Pear brandy which we make from fantastic pears grown in the Willamette Valley by EZ Orchards, another family farm with a long history in the Salem area. The first bins of this year’s crop are ripening in our shop and will be mashed to make more brandy for the coming year.
Star Crimson Pear Liqueur- $30.00 per bottle. Perfect for pear martinis, pear bellinis, pear sidecars.
