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.
