Chilean Pisco

Quick Spirits: Chilean Pisco | Bartender Atlas

What is Chilean Pisco?
A grape-based spirit usually made with Muscatel grapes (but there are a total of 11 varietals that can be used)
Made in only two regions in the north of Chile: Atacama and Coquimbo. The climates here are dry and desert-like.
The maximum distillation strength is 73%
After distillation, water is added to lower the ABV.
All Pisco must be stored for 60 days

What about Pisco El Gobernador?
Born in the dry and sunny climate of the Limarí Valley in Chile.
Made from Muscat Rosada and Muscat of Alexandria grapes.
This pisco chileno is made with a single process of discontinuous distillation in a copper still as the best way of preserving the terpenic aromas of the grapes.
Pisco El Gobernador is a versatile and diverse character: lush floral aroma with tinges of roses and jasmine, as well as candied citrus skins. On the palate it is sweet, round, and even creamy, with a long and persistent finish.
This pisco is ideal for the creation of numerous cocktails including the Pisco Sour and Piston (Pisco & Tonic).
