Local PTO strengthens policing of PISCO ´s DO
The Peruvian PTO (Indecopi) administrators of the Designation of Origin (DO) Pisco and the Regulatory Council of Pisco (“Consejo Regulador del Pisco”) are working together to reinforce the administration of the DO Pisco by means of modifying, as necessary, the current regulation of the DO of this famous beverage.
The goal of this joint work is to have a regulation that allows producers to use, in the best way possible, the DO, to ensure quality production and the possibility of marketing this product in the local and international markets.
In 2015 the Directorate of Distinctive Signs of Indecopi conducted 139 inspections. Thousands of bottles of alcoholic beverages that used the DO Pisco without the authorization of use were seized.
