Embedded in the Ica Valley of Peru, in the middle of the foothills of the Andes, lies the oldest, continuously operated distillery in America - the Hacienda La Caravedo was founded in 1684. From here, Caravedo Piscos are made in small quantities with the same quality, authenticity and tradition that are typical of Hacienda La Caravedo. The result is the most exquisite expression of the Peruvian national spirit, pisco.
All of our piscos are made entirely from the finest grapes grown on the estate.
Distilled entirely from wine and unchanged without adding water. Caravedo Piscos are a miscible and versatile white spirit that honors the spirit of tradition, craft and adventure.
The soft flavors of Caravedo Piscos go back centuries, almost four to be precise.
Like all good things, pisco began as an act of rebellion. In 1641 the Spanish King Philip IV levied high taxes on all wines produced in Peru. His new world subjects evaded the onerous tax by distilling the year's vintage. Almost four centuries ago, a new white spirit was born in hand-forged copper barrels and was christened Pisco, a reference to the port of Pisco from which this new spirit was exported and which means “little bird” in the indigenous Quechua language. To this day, Peruvians call it their native spirit.
Pisco can boast what only a handful of other spirits enjoy: a designation of origin. This simply means that all pisco must be produced in a specific region and under the strictest guidelines. All piscos are made in distilleries along the southwest coast of Peru and must be distilled from one of eight specific aromatic and non-aromatic grape varieties: Quebranta, Negra Criolla, Mollar, Italia, Moscatel, Albilla, Torontel and Uvina.
When it is distilled, pisco is made in small quantities, made in traditional copper stills and left unchanged or left unchanged. This means that not even water is added to the finished product. Pisco is distilled as proof, a rarity in a world where liquor makers distill to a high alcohol content and then add water to get the proof you want.
