BarSol is produced in one of the oldest distilleries of Peru, Bodega San Isidro, dating back to the1800’s. Both copper pot stills are over 100 years old.
Bodega San Isidro is located in Ica, one of the 5 official states, where Pisco can be made. The largest amount of pisco in Peru comes from the state of Ica. Over 250 producers are based in the state of Ica. The valley of Ica is extremely fertile, in the middle of a desert at the foot of the Andes, that is fed by rivers that carry rich minerals from the highlands to the coast of Peru.
Bodega San Isidro closed its doors to the public in 1969 due to the military government agricultural reforms which expropriated the vineyards from its owners and handed them to the working class.
In 2002, the Bodega was acquired by Diego Loret de Mola and Carlos Ferreyros. They revamped the distillery and lead the Pisco category to new levels in the export market, becoming the #1 exporters in 2005.
BarSol adheres to the classic pisco pot distillation method used for centuries in Peru; BarSol pisco is crafted in small batches and distilled to bottle proof; neither water nor any other ingredients are added, thereby creating an exceptional spirit of exquisite purity, clarity and smoothness.
