The Peruvian Consul is hosting the first Pisco Sour competition in Australia. Held at The Bathers Pavilion in Mosman on 8th of August from 5-8pm, participating bartenders will have the chance to showcase their skills and manufacture the best Pisco Sour cocktail possible.
Pisco, the national spirit of Peru, is manufactured from grapes. The Grapes are the key to understanding why Pisco is such a special spirit. The quality is preserved with a strict denomination of the origin from which the grapes can be sourced, not unlike the AOC rules of France.
Produced by two Peruvian sister, Macchu Pisco is a fast growing, high quality Pisco from Peru, which offers drinkers a new experience. Together, the sisters have crafted this sublime spirit which is making its way around the word, and most recently, into Australia. While the sisters certainly cast a reverent eye toward tradition, Macchu Pisco is singular in its modern purity and complexity and has been regarded as nothing less than revelatory by mixologists and the press. Macchu Pisco can be found in the finest restaurants and retailers around the world.
Entrants have the option of brining their own bottle of Pisco or use a bottle of Macchu Pisco for their cocktails on the day.
The winner of the event will receive return tickets to Peru, while also getting the chance to visit Macchu Pisco distilery and restaurants. A truly once in a lifetime experience.
