What Is Pisco and What Type of Drink Is It?

Pisco is a type of brandy, which is an alcoholic distilled from or fermented fruit juice. It originates from Peru and Chile, where it has been produced since the 16th century. It is generally clear in color and ranges in strength between 40-48% by volume (ABV). Pisco can be enjoyed neat, as a cocktail ingredient, or as the base of several popular South American drinks such as the Pisco Sour and Chilcano.

What Is the Taste of Pisco?

Pisco is a flavoured spirit made primarily from Muscat grapes, and has a distinct aroma and taste. It is usually semi-sweet or dry, with grape flavor notes along with herbal and earthy notes that are similar to tequila. Well-made pisco has a surprisingly smooth taste that is reminiscent of “burnt” wine, but less intense than brandy. Low-quality pisco on the other hand could be described as funky or musty. The aroma of pisco tends to be stronger than the taste itself.

Alcohol Content of Pisco

Pisco is typically distilled to proof, meaning that the ABV of the final product is usually between 38%-48%. This means that the alcohol content of pisco can vary depending on the distiller, with some brands producing products with an ABV as low as 38% and others reaching up to 48%. Generally, however, pisco will have an ABV of around 40%-45%, and should be served in a glass that allows for proper dilution of the spirit.
