Cachaça is rum's older cousin from Brazil. It is made from freshly-pressed sugarcane, while rum is made anywhere in the world, generally from molasses. Cachaça is the third most consumed distilled spirit on the planet, and the caipirinha, Brazil's national cocktail, is probably the world's most popular concoction! Our distillery is located at the intersection of mountains, rainforest, and ocean in the town of Morretes, state of Paraná, in the south of Brazil. With the jungle trees only feet away from our sugarcane, we are true stewards of one of our planet's last frontiers: the Atlantic Rainforest, home to 11,000 species of endangered plants and animals.
Our “Chameleon” expression marries the savory identity of our silver cachaca with vanilla notes of our oak-kissed barrel aged edition. It’s aged for one year in re-purposed American oak barrels, just long enough to reach a mixability peak without losing its rainforest and sugarcane funk. A hazelnut nose continues with sweet and spicy herbs in the palate and finished with lively citrus. From tiki drinks to stirred aperitifs, this versatile cachaça is the bartender’s friend.
