Since 1999, Pisco, Peru's national drink and famous grape brandy, has its very own day of celebrations.
Produced in Peru since colonial times, Pisco is an officially declared part of the country’s national heritage. The original Peruvian Pisco is made from grapes grown only in the regions of Lima, Ica, Arequipa, Moquegua and Tacna.
While celebrations take place throughout Peru, they are most enthusiastic in above mentioned Pisco-producing regions.
As the date of the Dia Nacional del Pisco is close to Fiestas Patrias, festivities for the Pisco Day and Peru’s Independence are often combined and the National Pollo a la Brasa Day, which is celebrated a week earlier, mixed in as well. Celebrations include Pisco tastings and tours, contests, gastronomic fairs, exhibitions and special offers at restaurants and bars.
