The southern city of Arequipa will celebrate the Pisco Sour Day with a day-long festival where over 6,000 glasses of the national drink will be distributed free of charge.
Friendly national drink
Event organizer Freddy Padilla said that the Pisco Sour Festival will take place this Friday, February 1, at the city's mayor square, with the participation of local producers from the Valleys of Majes and Vitor.
Arequipa has some 400 hectares of land under pisco grape cultivation, with a production capacity of 400,000 liters per year for both domestic and international consumption.
Have a drink with them
"More than six pisco distilleries of the Majes and Vitor valleys have teamed up to serve the delicious Pisco Sour cocktail to locals and tourists," Padilla said.
Piscosauer Day is held every first Saturday in February throughout Peru and the festival on Friday will be a national advance of that date.
