Primero Quebranta

Primero Quebranta  bottle

70cl, 41.3% ABV

Distilled and bottled in one of the oldest distilleries in the Ica valley, Barsol Primero Quebranta is produced from 100% Quebranta grapes  grown in the surounding sundrenched vineyards. Quebranta is the most widely-grown grape used for pisco and the type used to make classic pisco Sour cocktails. Adhering to the classic pisco pot distillation method used for centuries in Peru, this is crafted in small batches and distilled to bottle proof; neither water nor any other ingredients are added.

Tasting Notes


Gentle and fruity, with subtly sweet banana and ripe berry notes complemented by delicate citrus touches – lemon and lime.


The citrus of the nose is mirrored on the palate, along with a range of dark and sweet flavours – fruity-but-bitter dark chocolate, pecan nuts and hints of candied peel.


Seductively long, with slowly fading citrus.


Elegant and refined, with solid character. The long finish and sweetness on the palate make it perfect for crafting Pisco Sours.
