Pisco is a distilled brandy grape spirit drink originating from Peru, the land of the Incas. Pisco is clear and colourless. There are eight different grape varieties and generally four distinct types of Pisco: Pure (Puro), Aromatic, Blended (Acholado) and Mosto Verde. Typically a Puro Quebranta is used to make some of the many wonderful Pisco cocktails. Aromatic and Acholado Pisco's are often drunk neat as shots or over ice. Mosto Verde are the most alcoholic (usually 44% abv or thereabouts) as the must of the grape is used before it has completely fermented.
