Kappa Pisco is produced by the Marnier Lapostelle family, who is famed for bringing us the essential Grand Marnier and is also known for importing fine Chilean wines. It is this connection with Chile that distinguishes Kappa from other piscos, which are predominantly created in Peru.
The story goes that Kappa Pisco is named for a constellation that adorns the night sky over the fields that its grapes are harvested from. The Elqui Valley of Chile is the cultivation source for the Muscat grapes used in Kappa and upwards of 300 days of the year it is adorned with sunshine.
At night the constellation Southern Cross shines bright and within that is a star cluster known as the Kappa Crucis.
When the grapes mature and are harvested wine is made and that is distilled twice and combined with the clean water from the Andes Mountains. As is customary with pisco, Kappa is unaged.
