East Coast Beverage Adds New Peruvian Pisco

By January 30, 2022Rhode Island, Top News

Alegre Pisco Acholada.

East Coast Beverage added Alegre Pisco Acholada, a premium pisco handcrafted at the oldest distillery in the Americas, Hacienda La Caravedo, established in 1684 in Ica, Peru. Smooth, delicate acholado, or blend, is made from estate-grown grapes, carefully crafted by Master Distiller Johnny Schuler as a traditional, non-mosto verde blend. Pisco is technically an unaged brandy, obtained from the distillation of recently fermented Peruvian grape musts and juices, most famously used in a Pisco Sour cocktail, which highlights the herbal, earthy flavors. Alegre Pisco Acholada, at 86 proof, is described as clean and well balanced, crisp, with aromas of toffee, berries, vanilla and raisins, and a very structured, round and pleasing taste. Complex with notes of citrus, herbs and orange blossoms, along with impressions of hay and bananas with hints of chocolate, the finish is smooth, silky and very long.
