Singani


Singani is a grape Brandy made in Bolivia, similar to pisco, distilled from a variety of the muscatel grape grown in southern Bolivia. It is Bolivia's national liquor. Singani is used to make many traditional cocktails, including the chuflay and the yungueno.

Singani originated in the Valley of Cinti in Chuquisaca, the result of the locals distilling wine obtained from the Augustinian missionaries, who had been making wine in the region since about 1550.Lougheed, Vivian and John Harris (2006). Bolivia. Walpole, MA; Hunter Publishing. pp 203-205. It is now made exclusively in the Tarija Department, the wine center of Bolivia. Singani is considered an exclusive product of Bolivia, and was declared an geographical indication (GI) on May 4, 1992.
