Salud! Pucara Pisco has landed in Australia

Pucara Pisco

It is said the Pisco Sour originated in Lima, Peru over 100 years ago. It has stood the test of time and to this day, is a very popular cocktail the world over.  So lovers of the Pisco Sour will be super excited to hear a premium Pisco has hit the Australian market, called Pucara Pisco. In Peru, the Pucara bull or “Torito de Pucara” is a symbol of happiness and an Andean icon of unity and good luck. Pucara Pisco is made by Peruvians from Tres Generaciones using a 160-year-old recipe using the finest grapes. This unique spirit is developed from eight different varieties of grapes, ranging from non-aromatic to aromatic grapes. No colouring or flavouring is added at any time, which sets Pisco apart from other spirits. If you’re not familiar with Pisco, it’s a type of brandy, but quite removed from the brandy we’re familiar with. The spirit varies in colour and is believed to have been first produced in the 16th century by Spanish settlers. But let’s get back to the Pisco Sour.
