The base of this mix drink is the pisco, which is a type of brandy made with grapes made in Peru or Chile.
Pisco makers pride themselves on using the yeast from the grape skins for the fermentation instead of adding it from external sources.
(The role of yeast in fermentation is that the yeast turns sugars into alcohol.)
