Pisco: Our Flag Drink
The name of our distilled flag derives from the port and valley called Pisco, located in the south of our country. Pisco also evokes the great diversity of birds of the south, among which are the parihuanas, the huerequeque, the tendril and the condor, because the word PISCO comes from the Quechua term Pisccu which means, bird.
Our Pisco is a distillate of grapes whose fragrance and aroma is unique and incomparable. Its flavor is distinguished from any other distillate due to the use of the “pisqueras grapes” of Peru, which came to be used in winemaking and is classified into two large groups:
- Non aromatic: Quebranta, Mollar, Negra Criolla and Uvina.
- Aromatic: Italy, Muscat, Torontel and Albilla.
