MalPaso, a pisco brand from Chile, has announced its entry to the Australian market via a distribution deal with Pinnacle Drinks. The Chilean spirit will be distributed throughout the country via all Dan Murphy’s brick and mortar stores and e-commerce.
Special Pisco MalPaso 35°, made from Rosé and Alexandria muscatel grapes, Pisco MalPaso Reservado Icon 40°, also made from Rosé and Alexandria muscatel varieties, and Pisco MalPaso Reservado 40°, made from Pedro Jiménez grapes, will be available to local customers from this week.
Originally from the Limarí Valley in the Coquimbo Region of Chile, MalPaso pisco has been internationally recognised by critics as one of the best piscos in the market. Last year, its Rosé and Alexandria muscatel varieties were awarded with gold medals at the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles.
“We are very happy to add a new brand of pisco to Dan Murphy’s family and thus offer a greater variety to our Australian customers. MalPaso strengthens our international brand portfolio, bringing a new taste of Chile,” said Antoine Dupont, head of beer, spirits & imported wine at Pinnacle Drinks.
MalPaso’s entry into the Australian market was facilitated by ProChile, the Directorate of Export Promotion of the Chilean Government, which connects Chilean exporters with Australian buyers.
MalPaso is a family-owned business which has been dedicated to the production of pisco for over a century. Besides having a strong presence in the Chilean market, MalPaso products are also exported to countries like the United States, Denmark, Germany and Poland, among others.
