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.
"Rustic and full of character, this is all about the earthy, resinous side of Pisco. Pine needles, cedar-closet-planks, and some faint gasoline aromas, almost suggest a funky aromatic grappa, if not for the signature dried apricot and sultana raisins on the palate. "
