Jason Williams has recently spent a week at Ica in southern Peru, visiting Campo de Encanto Pisco distilleries and creating a bartenders’ blend. Pisco is distilled from grapes using specific grape varietals that fall into aromatic and non-aromatic categories much like terroir in wine.

During the masterclass, he demonstrated three Pisco cocktails which can be found in most bars in Peru.

The Chilcano is a refreshing mix of Pisco with fresh lime juice topped with dry ginger ale. The Pisco Sour is an easy-drinking combination of Pisco, fresh lemon and lime juice, sugar, egg white, shaken with ice and topped with a couple of drops of bitters. The Maracuja Sour is a take on the Pisco Sour with passionfruit added.

Pisco cocktails will be available at the Intercontinental Hotel during the month of July.
