Pisco Museum: this is the renewed menu of the space that celebrates our distillate

If it is about enjoying our national distillate, the Pisco Museum is one of the places we recommend for a unique experience. From classics with modern touches to signature cocktails that explore different techniques, they are part of the new menu with which they celebrate 11 years in the market with two locations in the provinces and one in the capital. Advantage visited the latter, located in the Center of Lima, and we tell you what you should not overlook.

“Our plan is always to show pisco in its greatest splendor. Regarding our anniversary, we wanted to show a menu where cutting-edge techniques and the work we do with different wineries and different strains shine,” explains Enrique Hermoza, the brand’s corporate bartender.

The expert tells us that for the locals in each province they created different cocktails, trying to highlight regional ingredients. For example, in Cusco they worked with corn and chicha.

“In addition, we have a Museum classics section, that is, the most requested cocktails were selected and we have sought to give a twist to their presentation,” Hermoza explains.

The Museum Experience

We begin the experience enjoying one of the new features, the cocktail Heritage #2 which includes house pisco, citrus, green Caña Alta and violet vanilla. It is a sweet and strong drink, perfect to accompany some snacks. Its decoration is striking, making it one of the most ‘instagrammable’.

Heritage #2

To accompany this cocktail we opted for a portion of Tequeños well fried and stuffed with Peruvian flavors. They come as if to share and the guacamole is fresh and with the ideal acidic point.

If it comes to surprises, the option that surprised us the most was the Cocktail Algarrobina, a Peruvian classic that is usually enjoyed at celebrations. The curious thing about this version is that they use the milk puncha clarification technique that makes this a transparent cocktail, very different from how we imagine it.

A different cocktail, thanks to the fact that it is considered frozen, is the Marticha, which includes pisco, mango, passion fruit, and lemon, making this a must-try adult dessert if you visit the Pisco Museum. Refreshing, sweet, with the precise amount of alcohol and acid, it became our favorite of the visit.


We finished the experience with some Barbecuewhich evoke the classic barbecue flavor, are soft and served with golden native potatoes, smoked choclito and rocoto sauce.


He Pisco Museum It has three locations: in Lima (Jirón Junín 201, Centro de Lima), Arequipa (Calle Moral 229) and in Cusco (Santa Catalina Ancha 398). You can learn more about their proposal on Instagram @museodlpisco.
