Pisco del Parral – Pisco Italia 500ml
Pisco the Spirit of Peru
What is Pisco?
It is a white spirit distilled a single time to proof from grape juice. Only the heart part of the distilling process is kept. The heart is considered the truest possible reflection of the grapes and the land where grapes were grown. This clear and easily recognizable sense of origin sets pisco apart among white spirits.
Peruvian Pisco can only be produced from 8 grape varietals Quebranta, Uvina, Mollar, Negra Criolla, Torontel, Albilla, Moscatel and Italia. Grapes must be grown in 1 of the 5 recognized Peru regions Lima, Ica, Arequipa, Moquegua and Tacna.
Pisco is one of the most versatile spirits, you can enjoy it as an appetitive, in multiple cocktails, on the rocks or on its own.
Pisco Pure, is the pisco made from a single grape variety.
Pisco Acholado, is the pisco made from the blend of two or more grape varieties.

Pisco sour and cheeses:
As the spring season approaches, it is a great time to enjoy some pisco sour. Very refreshing as the weather starts to warm up.
Pisco sour goes well with young crottin de Chavigno cheese as well as the traditional camembert. The fatty qualities of these cheeses are a nice counterpoint to the fresh citrus of the pisco sour cocktail.
Other cheese that work somewhat well with pisco sour are; a two-year-old Vieux Mimolette, a youngish Ossau-Iraty, and Livarot.

Some of our best picks are:
Quebranta pisco with ceviche (raw fish cured with lemon), prawns and garlic prawns.
