Pisco 7.9 Liquor Not Such A Good Idea After All
This man is holding what, if you could get your hands on it, is a pretty rare bottle of liquor. Earlier this week Peru's Minister of Production, Rafael Rey, announced a limited edition bottle of Pisco, a popular Peruvian liquor, that would be given as a token of the Peruvian Government's appreciation to those who helped Peru in the wake of the huge earthquake that hit on August 15. There were to be 1,000 bottles of Pisco made with a label denoting it as Pisco 7.9 (the quake was originally thought to be a 7.9 on the Richter scale, it's now been moved up to an 8). The label also thanked the foreigners for their help in Peru's time of need. The government has since retracted the name, decided that it was not appropriate. Production of the liquor will continue but under a new name which has not yet been revealed.
