On February 4th, the world will be celebrating International Pisco Sour Day, and it’s a great cocktail. Our two guests reveal why Pisco should be enjoyed for more than just one day and in way more than just one cocktail.

Suyo Pisco was truly meant to be. Alex Hildebrandt and Ian Leggett, co-founders of Suyo Pisco, happened upon each other while working in the same office. Both are half-Peruvian and half-American, and both had the vision it took to create something that bridged both worlds. That something is Suyo Pisco.

It’s great to have them both with us today to explore the journey it took to bring the liquid to bottle. 

But before we get to it, do you want to enjoy a tasting of Suyo Pisco? Well, buy yourself a bottle and then tune into Lush Life YouTube Channel.  Yes, Alex and Ian led me through a tasting, but you can only find it on my youtube channel, where you can also watch this entire episode plus all the other Lush Life episodes, as well as a whole lot more! So heck out the Lush Life Youtube Channel!! Just head to that's!

Our cocktail of the week is El Capitàn:


  • 1.5 oz SUYO Pisco No. 1 Quebranta
  • 1.5 oz Sweet Vermouth
  • Orange peel


  • Add all the ingredients to a mixing glass
  • Add ice
  • Stir, stir, stir
  • Strain into a coupe glass.
  • Express orange peel for aromatics and garnish.

And don’t worry; you can find a recipe for the Pisco Sour, more pisco cocktail recipes, and all the cocktails of the week at, where you’ll also find some of the ingredients in our shop.
