The Making of Port - Vin a' Dessert
Ann made a speed trip to downtown Portland, Oregon today to purchase grape neutral spirits at the Clear Creek Distillery. What a wonderful place. She backed her little car into the warehouse, opened the back hatch, and they filled a 15 gallon stainless container for the trip back to Washington. Oh, yes, she had to pay for it. So, the port (we can't call it port) will have the brandy introduced tomorrow, and then it will be aged in French and American oak barrels for a year or more! Yummy!
