Rompe Mar Pisco is an Acholado (blend) pisco, resulting from the blending of two emblematic Peruvian pisco grape varieties: Quebranta grapes and Italia grapes. It is produced in Peru in the Lunahuaná region.
Divine. Now, of course you need to try it out for yourself. Nevertheless, for now we”ll provide you with a short description.
Rompe Mar smell (scent): Fresh scent, light touches of citruses (especially lemon & lime) and banana.
Rompe Mar taste: Balanced & sweet, with pronounced notes of yellow lemon (eureka) & other citruses (especially lime). Notes of banana also very present. Secondary fruity notes can also be perceived, especially black raisins. Long-lasting aftertaste.
“No, thank you Turkey; I’m sweet enough” (Snatch, Guy Richie).
Our sole ingredient is grapes. This makes Rompe Mar pisco one of the purest liquors in the world. We use a blend of 2 varieties: Quebranta grapes and Italia grapes.
Rompe Mar does not contain sulfites. This doesn’t mean you won’t be guaranteed to avoid a hangover, but it will sure help to reduce the likelihood it happens.
Rompe Mar means to “Break the sea”. This name emerges because our distillery is located near the Pacific Ocean (35 km), and at the same time at the foothill of the Andes Cordillera. It’s located at a unique place in which the sea encounters the mountains, where the sea is “broken”.
The jellyfish, or méduse d’or as we call her, is a result of a diving expedition our founder Guillaume undertook in the Sea of Cortés off the coast of Baja California Sur, Mexico. As he was diving, he was suddenly surrounded by a large number of jellyfish, which fascinated him. Since the brand is inspired by the ocean, he decided the jellyfish should be on each of our bottles.
The jellyfish symbolises beauty, but also danger. For us, it’s a philosophy… When you stay stuck in your day-to-day routine, you won’t come across these types of enchanting and rather bizarre and fascinating creatures. It’s only when you get out of your comfort zone, for instance by diving under the surface of the sea, that you come across such beautiful creatures. But they’re also dangerous and can sting, as many of us have unfortunately experienced. That’s the price to pay for choosing the path less travelled : you encounter beauty, but it also contains danger, and a dark side…
Rompe Mar is just like the jellyfish. It’s enchanting but it can also be dangerous and sting if you have too many drinks. It’s as versatile as the jellyfish and can be mixed in an infinite number of cocktails…
It adapts to all situations, and follows our strongest mantra : go with the flow.
Rompe Mar is transparent because it is one of the purest liquors in the world. This is because our pisco is produced in Peru, where it is not allowed to age the product (wood barrels give liquor their amber, or whiskey-like colour). Unlike its Chilean counterpart, Peruvian pisco is not aged but rested. This explains its completely transparent appearance.
For sure not as much as we’d like. But we want to start somewhere. For each case of Rompe Mar sold, we donate 1$ to Wings of the Ocean, an NGO that removes plastic waste from the ocean.
We are currently available throughout Mexico and plan on embarking on a new European Journey in the upcoming months! Stay tuned, it will soon be available in Europe!
