Calle Santa Catalina Ancha 398 (corner with Calle San Agustin), Cusco. Open 11am-1am. www.museodelpisco.org
Museo del Pisco is a great place to discover Pisco, Peru's national drink with all it's wide and wonderful variations. Pisco is a kind of white brandy made from grapes and produced only in Peru. ACCEPT NO CHILEAN IMITATIONS. Pisco Sour is the national cocktail and shouldn't be missed, Chilcano is another Peruvian favourite or are you brave enough to try Pisco straight. Museo del Pisco is nicely decorated, friendly with a cool vibe. Overpriced maybe but good fun and a must-visit when in Cusco. They also serve food, tapas are delicious and take the edge off an empty stomach, as well as more substantial mains. The staff are just crazy/passionate about Pisco and happy to educate you in. Pisco tasting sessions. Live music most nights. Oh by the way, it's not an actual museum!
