Clean, well balanced. Crisp, with aromas of toffee, berries, vanilla, and raisins. Very structured with complex with notes of citrus, herbs, and orange blossoms. Impressions of hay and bananas with hints of chocolate.
Nestled in the Ica Valley of Peru, amidst the foothills of the Andes, lies the oldest distillery in the Americas. Hacienda La Caravedo established in 1684. From here, Caravedo Piscos are handcrafted in small batches with the same quality, authenticity, and heritage distinctive to Hacienda La Caravedo. Resulting in the most exquisite expression of Pisco, Peru’s national spirit. Caravedo is dedicated to artisanal craftsmanship, environmental stewardship and honoring centuries of Peruvian heritage. All of our Piscos are Pisco puros, made entirely from only the finest, estate grown grapes.
Essentially a South American take on Brandy, Pisco is made in the wine-growing regions of Chile and Peru through a single distillation of fermented grape juice (wine) in copper pot stills. The result is a clear to amber colored high-proof spirit whose flavor and aroma can vary dramatically depending on the grape varieties used. Furthermore, up to 27 pounds of grapes can be required to make just one 750ml bottle of Pisco! It is most often enjoyed in one of the many cocktails created especially for it, such as the Pisco Sour, Serena Libre or Pisco Punch.
