Product of: Peru
This Peruvian pisco was conceived not in Peru, but in San Francisco by a bartender (Duggan McDonnell), a sommelier (Walter Moore) and a Peruvian distiller (Carlos Romero). Together, they have produced a acholado (blended) Pisco from Quebranta (76%), Torontel (6%) and Italia (18%) grape varieties.
Encanto Pisco, which incidentally litrally translates as 'Field of Enchantment' is single distilled to strength (no water is added to reduce to bottling syrength) and is rested for nine months prior to bottling.
