Gran Sierpe Pisco
Artisan Brands introduces Gran Sierpe, a Peruvian grape brandy. With a taste similar to tequila, it is a versatile liquor for cocktails. Gran Sierpe Pisco comes in three flavors derived from grapes used to distill them: Quebranta, Italia and Acholado. Quebranta will be the first brand launched in the U.S., and the others will follow in 2010. Each varietal has specific flavor notes and profiles that create a smooth, aromatic taste and finish with the trademark Pisco bite. Gran Sierpe, which means “great snake,” comes in sleek bottles with modern serpent-inspired graphics.
