PiscoLogía Teams with Liberation Distribution

At PiscoLogía, we are always looking for ways to support innovative companies. It makes it even more exciting when we benefit from the creativity of these enterprises. For that reason, it is our pleasure to announce that we have joined forces with LibDib Distribution, Inc to distribute PiscoLogía in New York and California. Using a modern web platform, LibDib makes selling, searching and purchasing easy and convenient for everyone.

Here is how it works:

  • We list our PiscoLogía Pisco Acholado and PiscoLogía Pisco Quebranta on LibDib’s website.
  •  Restaurants, bars & retailers in California and New York purchase our pisco online using an extremely efficient process.
  • We directly ship PiscoLogía to the buyer.
  •  LibDib pays us within 30 days.

 

The simple process is a refreshing change to traditional ways of distributing liquor in the United States. Thank you to T & R Wines and Liquors, Inc in Potsdam, NY (www.tandrwines.com) for being our first LibDib customer! If you are located in California or New York, you can find our products by clicking on the link below:

Pagapu

Every year in August, when there is a new moon, the same ritual takes place. On a Tuesday or Thursday evening, Don Lucho, Azpitia’s shaman, is called to give thanks to the land, in a process called “Pagapu”.

At midnight, Don Lucho walks with us through the vineyard, saying ancient prayers that he learned from his elders. He burns incense and lignum vitae to purify the vineyard and to give thanks to “Pachamama”, the Mother Earth of the Incas, for her generosity in providing an abundant harvest and successful PiscoLogía production.

At the end of the ceremony, Don Lucho asks for permission from the Apus (the sacred mountains of the Incas), to open up Mother Earth’s womb so she can receive our offerings. At the highest point of the vineyard, we dig a small hole. With a small ceremonial light, we humbly and respectfully offer her gifts of coca leaves, pisco, sweets, and tobacco. This is to feed Pachamama and return everything that she has provided for us.

The offerings are then carefully covered with soil. A small wooden cross decorated with flowers is placed on this symbolic burial ground.  

Year after year, we show the same love, dedication, and respect to Mother Nature to ensure a successful production of PiscoLogía.
