Pisco Porton

Pisco Porton

42,90 €

Nestled in the Ica Valley of Peru, amidst the foothills of the Andes, lies the oldest distillery in the Americas, Hacienda La Caravedo, established 1684.

From here, Portón is crafted by hand in small batches using traditional artisanal distilling techniques, resulting in the finest expression of pisco, Peru’s national spirit. Distilled entirely from grapes and completely unaltered without even the addition of water, Porton is a mixable and versatile white spirit dedicated to honoring the spirit of tradition, craft, and adventure.  Are you ready to discover a whole new world?

 

Portón's smooth flavors go back centuries. Four to be exact.

Like all good things, pisco began as an act of rebellion. In 1641, the King of Spain—Philip IV—imposed heavy taxes on all wine produced in Peru. In response, his new world subjects dodged the onerous tax by distilling the year’s grape harvest. In hand-forged copper vats nearly four centuries ago, a new white spirit was born and christened pisco, a reference to the Port of Pisco from where this new spirit was exported and which means ‘bird’ in the indigenous Quechua language. To this day, Peruvians call it their native spirit.

Pisco can boast what only a handful of other spirits enjoy: a Denomination of Origin. This means, quite simply, that all pisco must be made in a specific region and under the strictest of guidelines. All piscos are made in vineyards along the south western coast of Peru and must be distilled from any of eight specific aromatic and non-aromatic grape varietals: Quebranta, Negra Corriente, Mollar, Italia, Muscat, Albilla, Torontel and Uvina.

In its distillation, pisco must be made in small batches, crafted in traditional copper pot stills and left unaged or unaltered, meaning that not even water is added to the finished product. Pisco is distilled to proof, a rarity in a world where spirit makers distill to high alcohol levels and then add water to dilute to their desired proof.

At Portón, we proudly honor the centuries of craftsmanship behind this traditional spirit.
