Don Michael is a family-owned Peruvian company that initially began making petrol. Thankfully they’ve pivoted to a more palatable liquid – Andean whiskey. This dram takes its inspiration from the ancient Peruvian beverage “Chicha Jora” – a kind of corn beer.
To soften the edges of the powerful Andean black corn, they’ve added malted wheat and barley from the US, and diluted it with pure Andean mountain spring water. The final product is a delectable, well balanced spirit with a distinctly Peruvian character.

Bright, succulent corn sweetness opens up the nose, accompanied by thick slices of malt bread, pencil shavings and a slightly vegetal Mezcal-like smokiness. Truly unique.
A thick, oily mouthfeel presents flavours of corn husk, treacled pecans, subtle cinnamon and nutmeg cream. There’s charred oak and pepper, but it’s less vegetal and smoky than the nose.
That Mezcal-like note returns, with spicy smoke and wheat beer lingering on a long, buttery finish - a testament to the diversity of world whiskey.
