Amargo Chuncho - Peruvian Bitters

“You can’t make a real pisco sour without it.”

Levi Walker, Prohibition in San Diego, CA

“Packed with the cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice notes you’d expect from this style of aromatic bitters, Chuncho also brings a floral base mixed with cherry and cola syrup; a Pisco Sour isn’t the same without these.”

Imbibe Magazine

“This unique aromatic variation is made with a selection of Amazon barks, herbs, roots and flowers. While hard to find, it’s the only bitters for a Pisco Sour.”

“Amargo Chuncho bitters out of Peru are billed as the authentic mate for your pisco sour.”
