Chicha de Jora is the traditional drink of the Incas, a type of corn beer that is as delicious, refreshing, and an ancient tradition. Here at the Ranch we will teach you this ancient practice as we prepare our very own chicha from local ingredients.
Based in our beautiful ranch, you can take in the majestic mountains that line the sacred valley and watch horses and hummingbirds as we prepare chicha.
You will experience the ritual ceremonies that take place when drinking chicha. First, a little chicha must be poured onto the ground as an offering to “Pachamama” (Mother Earth), then the “Kero” (traditional vessel) is raised skywards and the group toasts to the “Apus” (mountain gods).
The drinking of chicha is older than the Incas so for countless generations it has served as a way of connecting with the gods, a source of hydration and energy, and of course an effective social lubricant. Come and experience this sacred tradition with us!
