We were the only English speakers on our tour and being with Francis and listening to his explanations of the history and manufacturing of Pisco was wonderful. The information was presented in an interactive way and we enjoyed learning how to drink Pisco as well as information about the different regions of wine growing for Pisco. Everything about this tour... More

Even their "show room" was closed. Yup, not driving all the way back for this. Their website had no information stating they would be closed and a request for... More

There was nothing wrong with it but it's probably something that would interest anyone who likes Pisco or just likes touring factories. The tour is in Spanish only, so if you don't speak the language you'll miss a lot. At the end there... More

This is the kind of place that caters to large bus loads of tourists looking for a pisco distillery tour. Staff were friendly but readily pointed us in the direction of the tacky kitch stalls. Cafe food is pricy. Recommend going to Ava distillery instead as this is what the locals drink.

Very touristy. Pretty much this place is just to sell pisco to tourists.
