With London Cocktail Week around the corner (3rd – 9th October) there’s no better time to try your hand at mixing a Pisco Sour, a Peruvian favourite.

Renowned for being Peru’s national tipple, Pisco was originally created in the early 1900s and boasts a sweet and light taste, gentle on the palette and has proven to be the perfect aperitif to accompany the delectable dishes on our hotel menus. For instance, the delicious cuisine served at Inkaterra Machu Picchu Hotel is enhanced by the flavours of a variety of Pisco beverages on offer. One  in particular, that is a favourite amongst many, is the Pisco Sour de la Estacion, our seasonal Pisco Sour.
