A pure spirit single distil from wine made here in the winery. It has a subtle wine flavour on the back palate and is dilluted with Margaret River rain water. Used in South America as a base for many drinks including the famous Pisco Sour.
Wise pisco is a clear spirit, softly aromatic with floral and citrus notes. It is 40% alcohol by volume with a light mouthfeel and subtle wine flavours on the back-palate.
Where does Pisco get its name?
Traditional Pisco is made in the Pisco region of central south-west Peru and is claimed to be the Peruvian national drink, although neighbouring Chili also claims ownership of this grape wine distill. Whatever its providence we find our own version of Pisco a very interesting and tasty beverage.
How to make a Pisco Sour
- 60 ml Wise Pisco
- 30 ml Freshly squeezed lime or lemon juice
- 15 ml Simple syrup
- 1 Egg white
- Garnish: Angostura bitters
- Combine Wise Pisco, sugar syrup, egg white and juice with ice in a shaker and shake vigorously. The acidity of the juice emulsifies the egg white.
- Strain into a chilled glass over fresh ice.
- Strain and pour into a low ball glass with wedge of lemon or lime.Garnish with 2-3 drops of bitters.
Kick back and let the sun shine.
