Peruvian Pisco vs Chilean Pisco - A comparison from a groundwater modeler perspective


Hatarilabs is a blog for the knowledge diffusion on open source software in water resources with special focus on groundwater modeling and spatial analysis. However water resources specialists need to eat and to drink, therefore we wanted to give a more plural focus of our blog to cover more common topics for water resources specialist and geoscientists.

From a trip to Santiago de Chile we got a chilean pisco as a gift from a nice group of students from the University of Chile; that pisco was actually elaborated inside the university campus. In Lima we took the chance to compare it with a Pisco from the Tacna region. The comparison deals with the organoleptic (color, smell, taste) and fluid properties as viscosity.

Even though there is a long-standing controversy about where the Pisco come from, this video has the objective to understand the properties from both Piscos. Next time that you drink a Pisco, instead of looking for the origin, enjoy it with your friends.

Note: if you think that our blog should publish only topics related to water resources, please comment. If you like a video with the Pisco Sour recipe, comment as well.
