Listed first of the acholados in a Serious Eats 2014 review of the top ten piscos: “sippable blend with a distinct personality….worth getting to know”
Tasting Pisco LOGIA
The piscos of Pisco LOGIA are exceptionally pure and well-distilled. Since the distillery is in the vineyards where the grapes are harvested and the wines are made, the flavors and aromatics are as clean and fresh as can be. These piscos make beautiful cocktails.
Pisco LOGIA Puro Quebranta. Elegant and intense. Distilled 100% (“puro“) from the non-aromatic Quebranta grape. Non-aromatic varietals have a long history in pisco. Look to the palate instead of the nose to fully appreciate this brandy. $40. 750 ml / 41.8% abv.
Pisco LOGIA Acholado. A blend of brandies from the Quebranta and the aromatic Italia grape. Fruity, subtle, and citric, with a hint of muscat. $40. 750ml /41.8% abv.
Ranked first with gold medal in a Noches de Cata epicurean blog acholado tasting with 7 sommeliers and pisco experts in Lima in 2011: “Clear and brilliant… in the nose, chocolate, jasmine, green apple… on the palate, dried fruit, pecan, dried apricot… balanced, nice length”
