Author Rudyard Kipling once said that pisco is “compounded of the shavings of cherubs’ wings, the glory of a tropical dawn, [and] the red clouds of sunset.” This Valentine’s Day, Cupid aims his arrow at a bottle of Portón. The pisco inside is round and velvety and has a luxurious aroma with notes of cinnamon, orange blossom, and citrus. An exciting alternative to traditional romance-enhancing beverages like wine and champagne, Portón is distilled from grapes and can be enjoyed neat or mixed in cocktails. With one sip you will fall in love with the world’s most romantic spirit, Portón.
