Pisco Porton

Pisco Portón is the handcrafted, super premium Peruvian pisco that is estate grown, distilled and bottled in Ica, Peru, at Hacienda La Caravedo, the oldest distillery in the Americas.

To preserve the full character of the grapes, Portón Pisco uses the mosto verde method of distilling from partially fermented grape juice. This serves to keep some of the natural grape sugars from converting into alcohol, so putting more flavour and aroma into every bottle.

Portón Pisco is distilled to exactly 86 proof using custom made copper pot stills. By Peruvian law, no water can be added to the pisco to bring it to proof. After distillation, the pisco rests in containers called cubas de guardia for five to eight months in order to let the flavours develop.

Portón Pisco is committed to eco-friendly business practices and sustainability. Its new state-of-the-art and environmentally friendly distillery has gravity-fed channels that decrease reliance on electrical pumps and a water treatment system that recycles water from the distillation process into irrigation water for the vineyards.

Each bottle is individually numbered and bears the signature of Master Distiller, Johnny Schuler.
