La Caravedo Pisco Puro Quebranta
La Caravedo // Peru
La Caravedo is a pisco puro, which means that it is made with only one grape from the allowed eight in the production of Peruvian Pisco. In this case, they use the Quebranta grape. It they are usually reddish-blue in color when ripe although some are yellow-green. Quebranta is a non-aromatic varietal so the fruit notes that you find will be minimal. As it the case with all Peruvian piscos, this is distilled to proof without any water added at any point. This was launched in the U.S. in May 2015.
PiscoBrandy distilled from grapes and produced in either Peru or Chile. In Peru, there are eight allowable grapes and in Chile, there are three. Peruvian Pisco is distilled only once in a pot-still and no wood aging is allowed. Peruvian pisco cannot have any alterations including dilution. Chilean pisco can be distilled multiple times, can be aged, and can be diluted prior to bottling.
"The aroma is clean and clear with a summer salad of pears and grapes (with the skins), edible flowers, and microgreens. These flavors continue as you taste with just enough of a sweetness and oiliness to help cushion the brandy on your palate. The finish is slightly bittersweet with a slight spiced quality that makes your mouth water."
