Additional information

There are three somewhat different theories about the history of the Pisco Sour and its variations. However, the most approved or accepted is the one attributed to Victor Morris the creation of our divine national pisco. The story tells that Morris prepared and offered this cocktail for the first time, which years later would become National Heritage, in his bar named morrisbar, drawing inspiration from Whisky Sour.

From then until today, there is no document that proves the original recipe to anyone in the entire history of the recipe. For this reason, a popular dilemma arises as to whether the recipe of yesteryear is similar to the one used today or not. We cannot ignore, of course, the rest of the theories. In one of them, its creation is attributed to the workers of the aforementioned “Morris Bar” or “Bar Morris” and not to its owner.

In this latest version of the story, Peruvian bartenders such as Alfonso Bregoye, Graciano Cabrera and Alberto Mezarina are mentioned. Although this is also widely accepted, there is a third possibility, which tells us about the original recipe belonging to Victor Morris. Although it is similar to the first, he explains that the recipe evolved for at least 15-20 years until the one we know today.

It is for this reason that, according to this theory, the current recipe is credited to the bartender Mario Bruijet, who later worked in the Hotel Maury . Shortly thereafter, major hotels in the capital, such as the Hotel Bolivar, the Hotel Maury , among others; they tried to make cocktails similar to the original recipe. Some of them achieved their goal, as the Morris bartenders were in charge of working on them at the closing of this bar.
