• « Pisco — Distilled Peruvian Spirits Wine »! • « Pisco — Cultural Heritage of Peru »! • « Exclusive PERUVIAN APPELLATION of ORIGIN of the drink Pisco »! _ The word “ Pisco ” has an UNDENIABLE PERUVIAN ORIGIN , as has been verified through studies made by lexicographers, chroniclers and historians.

Diccionario de Peruanismos [ Dictionary of Peruvianisms ], Volume II, Ediciones Peisa, Lima 1975, page. 323). _ Precisely, the name of the valley was given by the Incas ( and not Diagitas or Manpuches ! ) themselves who were amazed by the large number and diversity of birds of the coastal region. They named the site “Pisko” (located approximately 200 km south of Lima), and the famous Paracas culture took place in this valley. _ However, this is not the only meaning of the word. A native community called “ Piskos ” had lived in the same region since ancient times ! _
