This Acholado (or blend) pisco is comprised of four grapes: italia, muscatel, quebranta, and negra criolla. All of the grapes, with the exception of the negra criolla, are aromatic grapes, which is exactly what they sound like: grapes which provide a fragrant aroma, particularly with floral and fruity notes.

    Brandy distilled from grapes and produced in either Peru or Chile. In Peru, there are eight allowable grapes and in Chile, there are three.

Tasting Notes

"This is a pisco you really have to spend some time with in order for the aromas and flavors to reveal themselves. Once you do, the fruit aromas (peach, apricot, green grapes) begin to come out. The pisco is soft on your palate and clean with a little herb flavor (think refreshing green herbs rather than dried, twiggy herbs). This would be best enjoyed at cellar room temperature so that the nuanced aromas and flavors can be enjoyed."
