Producer notes ~ "Our family has been producing pisco for five generations & over 100 years and is proud to have played an integral role in the development of Perú’s national spirit. In March of 1938, Mayor Juan Enrique Capurro and President Oscar R. Benavides together held the first Harvest Festival in Santiago de Surco, Lima, along with the first pisco tasting competition, a tradition that continues today. When the Peruvian government established the standards for the Peruvian Pisco Denomination of Origin fifty-two years later, Juan Enrique's grandson, Eduardo Castro Capurro, assisted as a consultant."
