Singani Bolivia: the country's national drink

Singani is a distilled spirit made from the white Muscat of Alexandria grape which has been produced in Bolivia for nearly 500 years. Unlike pisco, its Peruvian cousin, singani has not been available outside of its traditional homeland until very recently. For this reason, tasting singani is a rare treat essential to any trip to Bolivia.
