Pisco Portón Acholado is a pisco acholado, which means it is a blend of two or more of the eight grape varietals allowed by Peruvian law to make pisco. Pisco Portón Acholado is a blend of three estate-grown grapes (Quebranta, Italia, and Torontel). There are 8 pounds of grapes in every bottle.
Nestled in the Ica Valley of Peru, amidst the foothills of the Andes, lies the oldest distillery in the Americas, Hacienda La Caravedo, established 1684.
From here, Portón is crafted by hand in small batches using traditional artisanal distilling techniques, resulting in the finest expression of pisco, Peru’s national spirit. Distilled entirely from grapes and completely unaltered without even the addition of water, Porton is a mixable and versatile white spirit dedicated to honoring the spirit of tradition, craft, and adventure.
