Cherry liqueur

Sour Cherry Liqueur El Solitario


It marks the return of a liquor that characterized the Huaura province. This drink had its second debut 90 years ago when it was elaborated by an Italian who longed for the cherry brandy that was made in his home country, and used pisco for the maceration process instead of using grappa. Years later the product was made with sugar cane alcohol, and its demand started to decrease. El Solitario does not contain artificial colors or flavors.

Faustino Sánchez Carrión

El Solitario

Faustino Sánchez Carrión

A notable neighbor from an area North of Lima was José Faustino Sánchez Carrión, a leader in the Independence of Peru, nicknamed "El Solitario de Sayán" (Sayan’s lonely man). He opposed Spanish rule, Bolivar as a dictator, and San Martín's proposal to have a European prince as governor of South America.

He served as Bolivar's minister of state. He defended Republican ideals and the independence of powers. He believed in the idea of uniting South America, made up of federated states, following the route outlined by the thirteen colonies. His relationship with the "Liberator" deteriorated and cost him his life. He died at the age of 38 due to poisoning.

He gave his life for the republic, financed the liberating army during its time in Junín and Ayacucho. He signed as secretary in the National Assembly of the first Constitution of Peru. He faced the corruption of state officials and magistrates and left us as legacy the dream of freedom.

It is a story that deserves to be remembered and it is our purpose to revive it and to make it known for new generations to take the challenge left by this patriot.
