Change is a good thing. Try swapping out your Vodka for Pisco in your traditional Mule and let this new Chilean Mule take the lead. Salud!
But first, what is Pisco? Pisco is a spirit distilled 100% from grapes. Only two countries can legally make pisco, and the Denominations of Origin (D.O.) are in Chile and Peru. Catan Pisco is made in Chile, which is where our Founder, Catalina, was born.
Just like Champagne has to be made in the Champagne region of France, Pisco can only be made in specific regions of Chile and Peru for it to be called PISCO. The D.O is only in these two Countries and we hope to continue to educate the world on this amazing spirit and hope you will join us in the pisco movement.
Pisco is made from grapes, but do not be mistaken: pisco is not wine, and it certainly doesn’t taste like wine. If you have never experienced pisco, a common comparison is: “if Vodka and Tequila had a baby.” Pisco has the versatility of a vodka, yet the upscale aromas and vast complexity of a premium tequila. This is how some of Catan Fans have described tasting pisco for the first time—but to assure you it is neither tequila or vodka—pisco is unique, and Catan pisco is unmistakable.
Catan pisco guides you through a sensory ride, first with notes of peaches in honey, berries, tangerine and ripe melon, then balanced by the softness of floral aromas like magnolia, orange blossom and rose water, before a silky-smooth and gentle finish.
Catan Pisco’s versatile and unique flavor profile is what makes their award winning pisco an excellent spirit to enjoy neat, or simply stirred into any of your favorite cocktails.
Catan Pisco was awarded GOLD at this years San Francisco World Spirits Competition! Nearly 5,000 spirits brands entered and Catan Pisco is over the moon knowing they are taking home a Gold.
Before the holiday season is coming, I want to introduce their cocktail recipe from one of Catan Pisco’s favorite local-Latina collaborators, Argelia Martinez, owner of Vida Mia Cocktails. This holiday “Monkey Tail” cocktail kits could not have happened without her help and industry expertise. She is a pro at curating thoughtful cocktail experiences with a focus in supporting the LatinX community.
If you are not familiar with this delicious Chilean traditional cocktail, the “Cola de Mono,” you won’t want to miss out.
Inspired by her Chilean roots and heritage, founder Catalina Gaete-Bentz launched Catan Pisco in 2018 introducing the U.S. to its very first American pisco brand and became the first woman-owned pisco company in Chilean history. Get ready to make room on your cocktail bar for a wonderful liquor experience. Stop missing out on the unique spirit and tastes from Catan Pisco. Sometimes called the love child of vodka and tequila, Pisco is unlike anything you’ve ever tasted. Skip the champagne and crack open a bottle to celebrate life’s moments, big and small. Pisco perfectly blends the versatility of vodka cocktails with the aromas and complexities of upscale tequila.
