History 

Like most drinks, there are numerous versions of it's origin.  The most consistent dates back to the 1920's where Victor Morris, owner of the Morris Bar in Lima, Peru (the capital and largest city in Peru), is said to have offered the drink as one of the bar's specialties, thus giving him credit as the drink's original creator.  But, it's thought his popular drink was only the basis for the Pisco Sour.   

Some believe the authentic version of the drink, as it's widely known today, originated in the bar of the Maury hotel, also in the prime district of Lima, not far from the Morris Bar.  The Bar at the Maury is credited for adding the egg white and then garnishing it with bitters, possibly the reason the drink really took off and became so popular among the elitists at the finest Lima hotels.

The drink is still celebrated and served today in Peru and around the world.  It has been recognized in 2007 as a significant part of the Cultural Heritage of Peru by the National Institute of Culture.  The dink has gained so much notoriety that every first Saturday in February, is the official Dia' del Pisco Sour (Pisco Sour Day) in Peru and every fourth Sunday of July is the nationally recognized Dia'del Pisco, also known as Pisco Day.
