She has been serving as the Peruvian ambassador to Seoul since she came to Korea in May of 2007.

When she returns to her country she will be working at the headquaters of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Lima.

Amb. Bravo invited many of her friends to the event, which is the de-facto farewell party for her.

During the event the so-called "Ambassadors of Pisco" presented their brands of piscos: Mr. Johnny Schuler with "Pisco Porton," Mr. Guillermo Payet with "Piscl Payet," Mrs. Melanie Asher with "Pisco Macchupisco."

Mr. Manuel Ariste represents his company "Casta del Inka."

Mr. Roberto Melendez, who was chosen as the best "Bartender of Lima," personally made a guided tasting of the varieties of pisco.

Hundreds of guests enjoyed and discoverd the essence and passion of ancient Peruvians with the delicious pisco sour.

They were able to feel the Peru’s cultural heritage while enjoying numerous cocktails with drinks like "Chilcano de Pisco," "Peru Libre," and "Pisco Punch" among other drinks.

Pisco is the national spirit of Peru and the "pisco sour" has become a trendy cocktail. It still follows the basic sour formula. But because pisco is a grape distillate, the flavour is different from others.

Pisco sour is unique in its taste and different from the whisky sour, which is a classic sour very popular in North America.
