Christmas Eve Caspiroleta

It may be Christmas Eve, but it is still Spirit Thursday.

It’s Christmas time… and while we’re sipping on eggnog in the U.S., I bet you’re wondering what people are drinking in… Peru! Wonder no more. They are drinking the Caspiroleta, a Peruvian take on eggnog.

Pisco Portón is a super premium pisco made from selected estate-grown grapes and handcrafted using centuries old artisanal distillation methods at the oldest distillery in the Americas, Hacienda la Caravedo, established in 1684 and located in Ica, Peru.  A versatile and mixable spirit, Portón is the most awarded pisco in the world and the #1 exported pisco from Peru. It is made with the talents of Master Distiller Johnny Schuler, the world’s most respected pisco authority.
