Caring for my vineyards and distilling PiscoLogía are ways of life. Azpitia is my spiritual retreat, a place to spend time with family and to connect with nature. My husband and I bought this land in 1998 and we made our first pisco in 2003. Since then, we have slowly built the vineyards and distillery into what they are today.  

 

I constantly strive to craft an exceptional pisco and I am fully dedicated to abiding to the norms of the Denomination of Origin. I love the challenges that distilling brings, and working with the conditions of Azpitia to create the absolute best product possible. Most people don’t realize what goes into a bottle of pisco, or any liquor. For me, what counts most is the dedication, the way we raise our grapes, the way we care for our workers, and our connection with Pachamama.

I drank my first pisco sour in Lima in 2003 and immediately became hooked on the frothy cocktail made with lime juice, sugar and egg whites.  However, it wasn’t the flavor of the cocktail that inspired me to start PiscoLogía; it was the cultural experience of the clear brandy that made it so appealing. Just like Machu Picchu and the Nazca Lines, pisco is an icon of Peru. No social gathering is complete without it.

 

I started this company in 2008 with the goal of creating an exquisite craft pisco to be appreciated around the world.  Now you don’t have to travel to experience one of Peru’s most important traditions- just look for PiscoLogía on shelves near you.

I had been working as a bartender for over 15 years when I won a competition and a grand prize trip to Peru. During my travels, I met Nati and Meg and visited the distillery in Azpitia. PiscoLogia’s farm-to-table nature and smooth flavor left an impression on me. I left Azpitia with a bottle of PiscoLogia and new friends. 

 

The versatility of Pisco is most impressive to me. A pisco and tonic is lovely, but don’t underestimate it in a Negroni. Oh, and do yourself a favor and try a Pisco Colada. Run, hurry, it’s the best!
