We planned a visit to museo del pisco for their famous pisco tasting. After searching online and talking to friends who had been, we were excited to go.
We arrived at 845 pm and our request for a pisco tasting was refused as the proprietor felt that the time wasn't appropriate to fully appreciate the pisco tasting and the information that comes with it. As liquor enthusiasts, we were ok with the reasoning considering the place was busy and noisy. He told us to come back anytime during the day for a tasting. So, we enjoyed pretty ok food for reasonable prices and relatively expensive (for the area) fruit forward and sweet cocktails that were not really our style. However we can appreciate the craft in making those drinks. The pisco sour was good but relatively similar to others we have had.
We stayed for the music at 9:30 which was amazing and fun.
The next day, we cut our Cusco day-tour short and went back before we needed to catch our taxi to their airport. We arrived around 12:45.
When we requested a tasting, we were told they could not do a tasting until a specific time of the day, 3 pm. We did mention what we were told the night before, but still no. When I requested that we could order afew pisco's, no description needed, they refused and said they could not. Pisco needed to be explained. I didn't understand this, and was frustrated considering the information we received the night before.
So overall I thought the place was nice, food decent, drinks interesting but sweet. However, if you are going for the pisco tasting, make sure you figure out what availability they have for scheduled tastings as they are limited.
