Keep raising your face for our flag drink. The Minister of Foreign Trade and Tourism, Edgar Vásquez, announced that Peru has managed to obtain the denomination of origin of pisco in 70 countries and highlighted that with some of those markets where the flag drink is sold, there are still no commercial treaties, which may become an excellent opportunity to exploit. The figure exceeds the recognition of the appellation of origin of Chilean brandy in other countries. “In the framework of their free trade agreement negotiations, they have a recognition for what they call Chilean pisco in about 50 countries,” he explained in RPP.
The head of Mincetur added that his sector is carrying out an aggressive policy to boost our flag drink.
In the American continent, 16 countries recognize Pisco as Peruvian. These are: Bolivia, Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, El Salvador, the United States, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, the Dominican Republic and Venezuela.
