Pisco Portón, LLC announces the addition of Pisco Portón Acholado to the company’s portfolio.
The company is expanding its portfolio to offer additional expressions designed to fulfill market opportunities. Pisco Portón Acholado is handcrafted with the same quality, authenticity, and heritage distinctive to Pisco Portón’s portfolio, the company says. All expressions are produced by pisco authority and Pisco Portón’s Master Distiller Johnny Schuler at Hacienda La Caravedo located in Ica, Peru, which was established in 1684.
“The growth of Peruvian pisco is on the rise in the United States with demand increasing 59% in 2015,” says Brent Kallop, President of Pisco Portón LLC., in a press release. “With the demand for high quality pisco growing, we wanted to expand our offering to include an acholado that provides a premium blend and rounds out the portfolio to offer all three styles of Peruvian pisco.”
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.
Pisco Portón Acholado is available in key U.S. markets, with a suggested retail price of $34.99 per 750-ml. bottle.
