History

Way back in 1767, the Jesuits saw that northern Chile was a ideal for producing liqueurs thanks to its dry, sunny climate. Chilean piscos were presented at international level for the first time at the 1889 Paris world’s fair, while the Chilean government obtained the appellation of origin and exclusive right to produce pisco in 1931.

In 1928, Juan Torres Casals began distilling his wines to make brandy in the Penedès region of Spain. Eighty-four years later, Miguel Torres Chile produced the winery’s first pisco in the Limarí Valley, IV Region, where the Muscat grape variety is grown, perfect for providing the flavor for our reserve pisco, El Gobernador.

Essence

El Gobernador, born in the Limarí Valley, brings the spirit of adventure to northern Chile, with a reserve pisco made from Muscat grapes that has an alcohol content of 40% ABV. It is produced using a process centered on a single distillation as the best way of preserving the terpenic aromas of the grapes.

“The aromatic floral flavors and the citrus notes of El Gobernador Pisco ‘work’ with herbs, fruits, and berries. That’s why El Gobernador has a very versatile and diverse spirit you can use in a number of cocktails. My favorites are Pisco Punch and Cranberry Mule.”
