Just as the origins of the spirit itself divide opinion, this cocktail divides Peru and Chile and both claim ownership. The Peruvians argue its inventor was American Victor Morris at his eponymous bar in Lima in 1920, while Chileans claim its invention goes back to 1884 and an English sailor called Elliot Stubb, who replaced whiskey with pisco in his sour.
