New Booze: Perfecto Amor from BarSol Pisco
February 27, 2014
BarSol Pisco Perfecto Amor
BarSol Pisco introduces BarSol Perfecto Amor. Named after the marriage of pisco and grape juice obtained from the crush, BarSol Perfecto Amor is a Peruvian aperitif crafted in the Ica Valley and produced in one of the oldest distilleries of Peru, Bodega San Isidro, dating back to the 1800s.
BarSol Perfecto Amor is a blend of fortified grape juice from the Quebranta, Italia, and Torontel varietals. Each grape varietal is juiced separately and fortified by pisco distilled of that same grape before blending the varietals together to become BarSol Perfecto Amor.
“It was a long-standing tradition amongst pisco producers in Peru to make fortified wine for personal consumption by adding pisco to fresh, sweet grape juice,” says BarSol Co-Founder Diego Loret de Mola. “The tradition was lost as a result of military government agricultural reforms started in 1968.”
BarSol Perfecto Amor (17% ABV, 750ml) will be available nationwide at a suggested retail price of $18.99.
BarSol Pisco is distilled to bottle proof; neither water nor any other ingredients are added. For more information, please visit: www.barsolpisco.com
