Went in March 2017, Had a great tour, did the middle priced "mixology" tour, and because it was the low season I was the only one on the tour.The tour guide, Evelina was very knowledgable and friendly and engaging. I believe she spoke English, but my Spanish was good enough so it wasn't necessary. Was very interesting learning the history... More

We turned up without booking so was not disappointed when we could not get the vip tour however we did do the mixer tour. The tour guide spoke good English which allowed us to understand the history of pisco. All the way through he made sure we understood and asked if we had any questions. The mixer experience was brilliant,... More

We were the only English speakers on our tour and being with Francis and listening to his explanations of the history and manufacturing of Pisco was wonderful. The information was presented in an interactive way and we enjoyed learning how to drink Pisco as well as information about the different regions of wine growing for Pisco. Everything about this tour... More

Drove from La Serena to the distillery only to find out that they were closed that day for maintenance, but the guard happily informed me that they would be open tomorrow. Even their "show room" was closed. Yup, not driving all the way back for this. Their website had no information stating they would be closed and a request for... More

Chile is the Pisco capital of the world and if you want to see how it is made you can take a tour here. However, the process is very similar to wine making so this is nothing special. The idea here is to sell Pisco and there are several varieties to buy. The tour was fine and the people were... More

We visited here because this is the Pisco capital of the world, well, this and Pisco Elqui. There was nothing wrong with it but it's probably something that would interest anyone who likes Pisco or just likes touring factories. The tour is in Spanish only, so if you don't speak the language you'll miss a lot. At the end there... More

This is the kind of place that caters to large bus loads of tourists looking for a pisco distillery tour. Staff were friendly but readily pointed us in the direction of the tacky kitch stalls. Cafe food is pricy. Recommend going to Ava distillery instead as this is what the locals drink.

Very touristy. Pretty much this place is just to sell pisco to tourists.
