Barsol Pisco makes its way to Australia

BarSol Peruvian Pisco, ranked #1 Best Selling Pisco and #1 Top Trending Pisco in Drinks International’s 2017 Annual Bar Report – is on its way to Australia.

Vanguard founder James France commented:  “I have known Diego Loret de Mola [BarSol’s founder] for many years and I’m really excited that the timing is finally right for us to work together.  Diego and his BarSol Pisco are loved around the world and for good reason.

“We have seen excellent growth in pisco in recent years.  BarSol will sit alongside Encanto in our portfolio, with Encanto’s prime focus being its blended (acholado) pisco, known as Grand & Noble, while BarSol’s key focus will be its single grape varietals, starting with its classic Quebranta which is traditionally the leading style of pisco around the world.  It’s a great fit and we can’t wait to get started.

Diego Loret de Mola added: “We aim at maintaining our artisanal production style, yet adding some modern technology to improve the quality of the wines and the final distillate, enhancing our traditional production methods. We pioneered the pisco category renaissance in the early 2000’s and we are looking forward to continue expanding the awareness of pisco around the world for many years to come”.


In 2002, BarSol’s founders, Carlos Ferreyros (an agricultural entrepreneur in Peru) and Diego Loret de Mola (a USA business entrepreneur), embarked on a life-long journey to re-launch the pisco category around the world.  They acquired Bodega San Isidro, one of the oldest distilleries in the Ica Valley in Peru to distil and bottle their now highly-awarded pisco.

The name BarSol was conceived to celebrate Diego and Carlos’ intentions to introduce every BAR in the world to the ultimate pisco produced under the SOL of Ica, Peru.

BarSol is produced from fresh wines fermented from pisco grapes from the Southern Valley of Ica.  BarSol adheres to the classic pisco pot distillation method practiced in Peru since the 1500’s.  Crafted in small batches and estate bottled, BarSol is distilled to bottle proof and neither water nor other ingredients are added to the sole grape juice that is fermented into a perfect wine before it is distilled, thereby creating an exceptional spirit of exquisite purity, clarity and smoothness.

BarSol Pisco Primero Quebranta is produced from the fermentation of 100% Quebranta grapes from the Southern Ica Valley in Peru.  Highly awarded for its superior taste, BarSol Primero boasts subtle aromas and flavours of hay, banana, baker’s pastry and ripe dark berry fruit balanced with delicate citrus notes, apricot blossom with pecan and dark chocolate notes, that evolve into a seductively long and elegant finish.  BarSol Primero Quebranta is the perfect pisco to make the best pisco sour.

BarSol Pisco will be available from Vanguard Luxury Brands in late October. Phone 1300 DRINKS or email for more information.
