Discover a new flavor from South America also known as the 5th white spirit. Pisco is a type of brandy made from grapes at the foothill of the Andes Mountains and is a versatile spirit that you can mix into your favorite cocktails, replacing some other traditional spirits like vodka. Pisco Portón is created at the Hacienda La Caravedo, the oldest distillery in the Americas. This unique liquor captures citrus and spicy flavors with a lasting aroma handcrafted in a beautiful bottle with a Peruvian landscape.

Kick off this special occasion on February 2nd with National Pisco Day and celebrate at the many restaurants around the country that are offering specials and some of their very own cocktail creations.

I'm a Caracas native, living in Chicago. I have a passion for travel, culture, food, adventure and discovering new places off the beaten path. I still remember the first trip I took internationally as a child and the excitement that it was to know that everyone will speak another language. Traveling was cool—waking up early to make the trip to the airport, packing too much and then realizing it’s much better to pack light. Now a travel writer, I get to see new places continually, check out new restaurants, and talk about my experiences. Just as I’m about to be done with a trip, I see myself at the airport daydreaming while staring at the departure board thinking about my next destination.
