On this week’s The NOLADrinks Show with Bryan Dias, we’re tasting and exploring pisco! We’re joined by noted spirits educator and consultant, Danny Ronen of DC Spirits. We taste through various expressions of the Peruvian spirit, talk about the variations, and share some ideas on how to appreciate pisco!

NOLADrinks Show – 8-12-19 – Pisco with Spirits Expert Danny Ronen
We kick things off on the show teeing this week’s program up for you. We recorded this episode at Tales of the Cocktail.
Next up, we’re off to our featured interview with spirits educator and consultant, Danny Ronen of DC Spirits (and many other things). He was on with us last year around this time when we explored the interesting spirit, Genever. This time, we discuss pisco – the fascinating spirit of Peru.
Regular listeners of the show will know that we’ve discussed pisco before on more than one occasion. We’ve gone into pretty significant detail on production, the traditional and cultural importance of the spirit, and its history. On this show, we get to enjoy several expressions with Danny!
We sample piscos from various producers that demonstrate different styles and flavor profiles. They include “puros” (single grape varietal expressions) and “acholados” (blends.) Also, we discuss bits on production, flavor characteristics, and much more.
Also, Danny lets us know about an interesting DIY monthly cocktail kit from Shaker and Spoon.

On “Another Shot with NOLADrinks,” Danny sticks around where we sample more piscos and wax philosophical about the spirit and much more! We close things out with a brief “Parting Shot,” not much more than “drink more pisco!”
