Location: Destilerías del Sur, Peru
Qollqe boutique pisco is produced using late harvest grapes from Ica land parcels at Destilerías del Sur. Time-honoured artisanal harvesting and manufacturing processes are used to keep its traditional and natural essence. It has an annual production of no more than 5000 litres. Their labels, designed with the concept of Pre-Inca values in mind, uses Paracas culture iconography, reflected through use of silk on the bottle.
With a traditional artisan manufacturing process, QOLLQE is a product which is limited to the harvest from Ica land parcels and traditional grape harvesting methods of Peru which give good yields and quality, all the while keeping its traditional and natural essence yet still maintaining the highest organoleptic quality levels.
Qollqe Pisco’s quality lies in the rigorous selection of grapes, which are cultivated, in some cases organically and in a manufacturing process where they use between 7- 8 kilograms of grapes per liter. They also adhere to a settling period of at least one year, which contributes to the refinement of the aroma and quality of the Pisco.
