Discover A Classic Pre-Prohibition Libation Made With Peru's Native Spirit

NEW YORK, Jan. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A classic cocktail dating back nearly one hundred years, the iconic pisco sour is back at the forefront of mixology due to the recent revival of pre-Prohibition cocktails. Porton® Pisco, the flavorful and versatile ultra-premium white spirit from Peru, is inviting consumers to raise a glass with a bit of class just in time for National Pisco Sour Day on February 2. To shake things up for the occasion, the brand has encouraged celebrated bartenders nationwide to offer innovative takes on the classic pisco sour with Porton.

Enrique Sanchez of Rose Pistola in San Francisco created the Hometown as a reflection of his Peruvian and Italian heritage, using each culture's respective spirit: pisco and amaro. He notes, "Porton offers this cocktail a bouquet of flavors with a touch of pineapple on the finish, which when combined with the caramel-bitter of Averna, gives birth to a very balanced and nostalgic rendition of a pisco sour."

Pisco, also known as the "5 th white spirit," is a type of brandy cultivated from grapes. Combined with lime juice, simple syrup, a dash of egg whites, and bitters – the pisco sour is a delicious cocktail that is truly unique to Peruvian heritage. As the first truly premium pisco available in the U.S., Porton's exceptional harmony of floral aromas, combined with soft fruity notes, makes for the ultimate pisco sour.

"Porton was created to introduce the taste of Peru to the U.S. and ultimately change the way cocktail and spirit enthusiasts view ultra-premium white spirits," says the world's preeminent pisco authority and connoisseur, Porton Master Distiller Johnny Schuler. "I am thrilled to see how leading bartenders from New York to San Francisco to Miami have continued to put innovative spins on the National Cocktail of Peru."

Below are some innovative recipes perfect for a Peruvian-style celebration at home or, should you choose to leave it to the professionals, please visit Facebook.com/PiscoPorton for additional variations available at bars and restaurants nationwide.
