1.Hello, Good Morning,
I would like to know if Peruvian Pisco is exported to Portugal. I would also like to have contact information for Peruvian Pisco producers, in order to become a distributer in Portugal. I await your response. With my best wishes,
2. Mr. Ambassador, Mr. Consul of the Embassay of my country, the Republic of Peru in the Russian Federation:
A documentary has been transmitted whose title translated to Spanish is “The Planet without prejudice: Chile: El Valle Elqui” which lasts 27:17 minutes. During the first 11:30 minutes the documentary mentions that Pisco is made in Chile. I think this constitutes a disrespect of the rights of our country, of our national dignity. Here is the link to the Youtube video.
I ask you to take up this issue as it is one that is of the highest priority for the cultural interests of our country. Sincerely
Wilder Gómez Ramos

Starting on April 24, 2012 the transmission of a documentary with the name “The Planet without prejudice: Chile: El Valle Elqui” began. The content of this movie during the first 13 to 14 minutes does not correspond to the true history of the true origins of the drink called Pisco, which is against world recognition that Pisco is the national heritage of Peru. The city of Pisco exists uniquely and only in the territory of Peru, and was founded before the colonial era. In regards to the establishment of the city there is information in different chronicles of Peru which were written by the colonizers, as well as different historical investigations that have been done until now. The Chilean writer Isabel Allende also recognizes that Pisco is Peruvian in her book “Mi País inventado” (2003).
Today, as proof that Pisco is the national drink of Peru and originally from Peru, there is an official documentary titled “Les appellations d’origine, " which was produced by the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization) in January 2006, after a long dispute with Chile.
Pisco is the national beverage of Peru, and is only from Peru!
If you need any documents that confirm the information above indicated, or the research, I would love to give them to you.
I hope that you can help with the sincere presentation of this information in your channel, which has a great popularity with Russians.

4. Are there only 3 types of Pisco? Are the aromatic grape varieties only Quebranta, Mollar? In Green Must are the only varieties Italia, Quebranta, acholado? In regards to “acholado” there are infinite combinations.
We must begin by defending that Pisco must be promoted abroad, and it seems fine with me to state that there are only three types of Pisco, but we must do so with a consensus.Sincerely
5.- Hi, I am interested in purchasing pure Quebranta Pisco in order to commercialize it, after examining the liter/bottle. Please send a quote. Please only pure pisco.
6.- I sell Quebranta Pisco in bulk. Very good quality. Produced in Flores Cañete.
7.- I sell pure Quebranta Pisco in bulk. Very good quality from the city of Ica. Please email me. Cheers,
8.- I have decided to do my thesis research on vineyard tourism in Santa Cruz de Flores. Where can I find more information about this? At the municipality? Or with AVA? Please write as soon as possible. Have a great day,
9.-I am about to open a restaurant in the city of Chimbote and I would like to acquire liquor. I would appreciate any information. Thanks,

11.-Good morning. I am very interested in courses about Pisco Tasting. Sincerely,
Gladys Torres Urday
Carlos Pastorino, whom I met when I lived in Holland, recommended this website to me. Fantastic website. It has lots of information about Pisco, and is just what I was looking for. I will visit Peru in July 2012, and I need to take a course to increase my knowledge of Peruvian Pisco, such as things about its varieties, types, etc. Could you please let me know where I can take this course?
13.- I am a specialist in alcoholic beverages and I have seen your blog. It is very informative and interesting. I would like to subscribe to the electronic magazine and have constant information about Pisco.
Sincerely, Danko Miskulin
14.- Dear Sir,
My name is Jordana King, I am an American university student. Currently I am studying at Washington State University, in Washington State, on the west coast. I just returned to the US from Peru, where I studied for a semester (from July to December) at the Universidad San Ignacio de Loyola-Lima. I lived with a Peruvian family and I loved Peru and all Peruvian things: culture, music, cuisine, and especially Pisco.
Currently I am in a class titled “History and Culture of Latin America” in order to learn more Spanish and more things about Latin American countries. Therefore, I need to write about a Latin American issue. I would like to write about Peruvian Pisco: its history, the name, tourism, and how it is served in bars and modern discotecas in Lima, etc. Would you be so kind as to send me a copy of your magazine “Pisco” for my project? It would be great if I could write with Peruvian sources and with real paper instead of articles from the website. I am a student and I will graduate in May. I would like to work in international public relations, and one day in South America. It would be wonderful if you could send me a copy of your magazine--any version, but I would prefer it in Spanish (it is obvious that I need to practice more Spanish), and a copy that has a lot of information about the distillation process, as well as the warm broth, fermentation and modern use. Thank you so much! I really appreciate it. I’ll await your response. Sincerely,
Jordana A. King
15.- Dear Sir,
I would like to thank you in advance for taking time to read this. I am interested in exporting Peruvian Pisco to the United States. We are an established Peruvian-American company in exports. Imports would be a new area for us. We need information on bulk prices, delivery, payment types, production, label and presentation, quality and the coordination of some samples of 550 to 750cc.
Thank you again for your attention.

16.- I am a dessert chef at the Hotel Bolivar. I make a Pisco Sour Mousse just for tourists. This is my recipe, but if you would like, I can make it for you to try. Thanks,
17.- Good Afternoon, I am very interested in finding out how you can help me export Pisco. I have a Pisco brand registered in Indecopi and all the necessary documents. Please contact me for more information. Thanks.
Sincerely, Rafael Guillen Montalvo
18.- Good morning Sir. I would like to thank you for allowing the publication of this letter so that I can market my Pisco. I have pure Quebranta Pisco and I would like to know all the steps I must take to be able to commercialize and export it, or in some way, be able to sell my product. Thanks so much, Sincerely
19.-I think that this website is a great initiative. We are producers and exporters of Pisco Don Cesar in Tacna, and anyone who is interested, can contact us via email in order to begin negotiations.
20.- I think it is wonderful that there are groups of people who want to promote and develop our Peruvian Pisco. My family has some grape fields and I would like to be able to commercialize Pisco. The question is, where do I begin to start the process? I would appreciate some help.
Thanks, Víctor Usurin
