Wonders of the Peruvian Spirit

The Auditorium of INDECOPI was the place chosen for the launch of the book ‘Denominacion de Origin. Maravillas del Espiritu Peruano’ (‘Denomination of Origin. Wonders of the Peruvian Spirit’).

According to INDECOPI the book “makes a journey through pre-Inca myths, historical documents and the experience of existing producers who continue to use the same techniques of production and processing.” It adds, “the book provides a comprehensive overview of the historical factor, ethnographic, archaeological and human, which gives the category of 'unique' to our designations of origin.”

INDECOPI is the competent authority to grant DOs in Peru and until 2005 Pisco was the only one - today there are seven more DOs in Peru.

INDECOPI informs that the book was possible through the cooperation of USAID (U.S. Agency for International Development). The launch of the book was attended by representatives of different associations of DOs, as well as INDECOPI’s and USAID’s representatives.
