We're Glad You're Here.
Torrentera begins as a small batch of pisco made for friends and family. Our founder, Rita, begun this journey wanting to create the best tasting and highest quality pisco.
Making her way down the coast of Lima, Rita drove for weeks searching for the right varieties of grapes: Italia from Ica, Torontel from Ica and Cañete, Moscatel from Ica and Arequipa, and Negra Criolla from Arequipa. All to come up with the perfect blend, a pisco Acholado that would later become the first version of Torrentera.
We worked closely with local experts who helped us follow the most simple, yet precise techniques. Here's what goes on:
-Grapes are carefully handpicked and taken to be pressed
-Grapes then go through a natural fermentation process that results in what we call "mosto"
-Our mosto is then distilled in traditional copper alambiques, drop by drop
-Finally, we let it rest for a couple of years! (it's worth the wait)
