AVUÁ CACHAÇA is a single sourced and pot distilled spirit, made in a family distillery four hours north of Rio de Janeiro.
Perfected over 100 years by the distiller's family, great care is taken in the production process. Estate grown cane is hand cut and, within four hours, pressed by a water-wheel powered mill, followed by wild yeast fermentation for twenty-four hours. This culminates with a single distillation in an alembic pot still. The final products are then rested or aged on site and bottled at their peak.
Our mission is to challenge the perception that cachaca can solely be used in a caipirinha, expressing the tradition of cachaça in Brazil that extends back over five hundred years.
