Fodor's Review

About 4 km (2½ miles) past Pisco Elqui lies this operational pisco distillery. Guided tours show you around its workings and culminate in the basement, where the original owner and his partners would raid the stock for prolonged, secretive drinking sessions. More clear-headed visitors note that he and his friends also found time to amass a rather morbid collection of epithets, now displayed on the walls. Instead of taking the bus, try hiring a bicyle and doing the comfortable three-minute ride to the vineyard on your own steam, taking in views of the valley as you go.
