Our main quince supplier is Tremaine Arkley, a former champion croquet player and possessor of one of the world’s largest collections of croquet-related art. He partners with Orchards of Oregon in Wilsonville. What they can’t supply, we pick locally – our unofficial motto is have ladder, will travel.
The range of shapes and textures of the various quince are fun to examine and provide relief from the ardor of hand-chopping. In ten years, we have witnessed only two people eat a raw quince. You really have to cook it to appreciate the blend of apple, pear, honey and citrus notes that are part and parcel of quince. The liqueur reflects all of these flavors and also the tartness of the quince, but with addition of minimal organic cane sugar, the tart is tempered with some sweetness.
We use our Pear Brandy to make this golden, honey-scented liqueur.
