Bodega Lazo Review
One of the more fun alcohol-making operations to visit is owned by Elar Bolivar, who claims to be a direct descendent of the Libertador Simón Bolívar himself (some locals shrug their shoulders at this boast). Regardless, Elar's small artisanal operation includes a creepy collection of shrunken heads (Dutch tourists, he says, who didn't pay their drink tab), ancient cash registers, fencing equipment, and copies of some of the paintings in Ica's regional museum. The question is, who really has the originals—Elar or the museum? As part of your visit, you can taste the bodega's recently made pisco, straight from the clay vessel. Some organized tours include this bodega as part of a tour. It's not a safe walk from town, so take a cab if you come on your own.
