The 2017 Somms Under Fire Cocktail Challenge featured Pisco Portón Mosto Verde. Pisco Portón Mosto Verde is a super premium pisco handcrafted at the oldest distillery in the Americas, Hacienda La Caravedo, established in 1684 in Ica, Peru. It is a full-bodied, luxurious acholado, or blend, of estate-grown grapes, carefully crafted in the mosto verde style by Master Distiller Johnny Schuler and recognized as the finest type of pisco. Pisco Portón Mosto Verde is the most awarded pisco in the world with over 150 international spirits awards and is the #1 exported pisco from Peru.
This year, Somms Under Fire contestants were challenged to create a Craft Cocktail Recipe using Pisco Portón Mosto Verde. They were required to present a personal narrative with their selected ingredients, garnish, style, and presentation of Pisco Porton Mosto Verde Cocktail.
