Lapostolle Pisco XO N/V

Lapostolle Pisco was created in honor of Jean Baptiste Lapostolle, the Frenchman who founded the House of Marnier-Lapostolle more than 180 years ago. Muscat of Alexandria and Pink Muscat from the Limari and Elqui Valleys are vinified, distilled, and aged using techniques adapted from Cognac production. Lapostolle Pisco has the soul of Cognac, the complexity of Gin, and the versatility of Vodka.

Tasting Notes

Production Process
Distillation

To ensure the best distillation possible, Lapostolle uses a state-of-the-art Alembic Still from Cognac. Because their priority is preserving the quality of the grapes, they adapted the technique of distillation from Cognac to ensure the best quality of the alcohol while preserving the Muscat aromas.  This Pisco was aged for six years in medium toast barrels in order to add complexity and sophisitcation. Lapostolle uses French barrels from Cognac rather than American Oak so as to not overpower the delicate aromatics. Some barrels are new, but others were previously used in Cognac.

Aging

The Pisco has been aged for six years in French oak barrels, some new, others used in Cognac.
