Pisco is said to have originated in Peru. The word "pisco" comes from the Quechua language and means "bird." In Peru there are many villages with the word pisco as part of the name:
Piascobanba=fields of birds
Piscohuasi=house of birds
The natives in Peru were also known as "piskos" and it seems they were rather handy as crafting ceramic jugs which they coated with beeswax. These were ideal for storing alcohol and the Spanish settlers called these "piscos."
Chile and Peru are major sources of Pisco. The product is distilled from Muscat grapes, approximately an Italian "grappa" of Moscato.
