Cachaça is rum's older cousin from Brazil. It is made from freshly-pressed cane juice, 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 the mountains, rain-forest, 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 rain-forest, home to 11,000 species of endangered plants and animals.
Novo Fogo Silver Cachaça is the purest representation of Morretes, sugarcane one can find. The aroma of bananas is present from the first whiff, followed by the traditional rain-forest notes that shine through the spirit, giving it a pleasant floral aroma. A sea salt presence balances the tropical personality of the spirit, adding a savory quality and settling the overall impression to a mouth-watering sweet red pepper.
