What is Pisco?
If you are not so familiar with pisco, we put together a brief explanation about the distilled liquor before you head out to try the cocktails.
Pisco is produced in winemaking areas in Peru and Chile. The history of producing the spirit is long and the battle of who invented it is equally long.
It all started back in the 16th century when the Spanish conquistadors arrived from Spain and brought with them vines to South America to be able to produce their own wine.
How Peruvian Pisco is made and what it is
It’s a brandy elaborated from fermented grape juice and distilled to a spirit.
Peruvian pisco needs to have an alcohol percentage between 38% to 48%.
The colour of the clear spirit goes from colourless to amber, depending on the elaboration of Peruvian pisco is simple and traditional, with either a single- variety or blends.
The Peruvian golden pride can only be produced five different areas of Peru; Lima, Ica, Arequipa, Moquegua and Tacna
There are four kinds of different pisco:
Puro (pure) – single variety grape
Aromáticas (aromatic) – Moscatel or the other aromatic grape varieties
Mosto Verde (green must) – produced from the partly fermented must
Acholado (multivariate) – blend from various types of the allowed grape varieties.
No additives are allowed in the making of Pisco in Peru that could alter colour, taste or smell of the brandy.
There are only eight types of grapes allowed in elaborating pisco in Peru.
The process in short:
After the grapes have been selected and harvest, they are lightly pressed and the juice from the grapes is fermented.
Posterior, the fermentation process has been completed, it’s time to distil the pisco.
After the distillation is finished the pisco rests for at least 3 months in glass or stainless steel vessels to develop its flavour.
A vessel that can leave a trace of chemical or organic particles is not allowed to use, as for example wood.
