This 30 minute webinar will give you an introduction to Pisco.
How much do you know about Pisco - a brandy made in Peru? Developed in the 16th Century, this pot-distilled brandy is made from highly aromatic grapes and many are unaged - making them markedly different from French brandies. In this session, we will cover everything from its historical origins and Denomination of Origin (DO) regions to the grapes that it is crafted from, their characteristics, classification, the process, how to imbibe it in cocktails or enjoy it neat. A fun, dynamic and enlightening session about the Spirit that is very quickly recovering its place at the best bars in the world.
The new series of short 30-minute webinars are ideal for spirits enthusiasts looking to learn more about spirits from around the world.
