Lula Valdivia Dukich.El Pisco is Peruvian and period! ”
Lula Valdivia, singer, actress, recording star and television personality, moved to the United States from her native Peru just a few years ago, but her music has been internationally recognized around the world for decades. Recognized for the lyrical beauty of her voice and her rhythmic expression, Lula has captured the American fans of World Music, Jazz, Latin Jazz and Afro-Peruvian Music through her recordings and live performances.
Born in Arequipa, Peru, the second largest city in the country, Lula began singing at an early age, influenced by his father, Dr. Félix Valdivia Cano, a guitarist who played and composed folk songs; but it was her mother who encouraged her to share her unique talent by acting in public. He began his career at the age of fourteen, singing international pop, rock and Latin American music with one of Arequipa’s most popular groups, while also singing with a well-known jazz trio.
Lula Valdivia, not only promotes music, culture but also is a driving force of Peruvian Pisco in the American market
We can say that Pisco is Peru for all the flavor, tradition and history that transmits our flag drink, expressing a cultural diversity that welcomes and surprises tourists.
The name Pisco derives from the port and valley called Pisco, located in southern Peru, where the brandy was shipped to Spain for the first time, in the sixteenth century. Pisco also evokes the great diversity of birds of the south, among which the parihuanas, the huerequeque, the zarcillo and the condor stand out, because the word PISCO comes from the Quechua term Pisccu which means, bird.
The only and incomparable
Pisco is a distillate of grapes whose inimitable fragrance and fragrance blends European life, adapted to the sunny lands of the south coast of Peru, with the wisdom of the ancient pottery makers of the jars, in which this exquisite grape brandy is stored .
The taste of pisco is distinguished from any other distillate due to the use of the “Pisco grapes” of Peru, which came to be used in winemaking and are classified into two large groups:
Non-aromatic: Quebranta, Mollar, Criolla Negra and Uvina.
Aromatics: Italy, Muscat, Torontel and Albilla.
All of them are varieties of the Vitis Vinifera L. species, which were adapted to the terroir.
Types of Pisco
Because of its taste, the following types of Pisco can be distinguished:
Pisco Puro: Pisco obtained exclusively from a single variety of pisco grape.
Pisco Mosto Verde: Pisco obtained from the distillation of fresh musts of Pisco grapes with interrupted fermentation.
