About Unaged Cachaca

About Unaged Cachaca
Cachaça, distilled from sugar cane, is Brazil's national drink. There are almost 30,000 producers in the country; most versions are unaged, with alcohol between 38%-54% ABV. Clear in appearance with notes of powdered sugar, banana meringue and bamboo among others, it is often fiery and earthy and should be used as a mixer for cocktails, especially the famed Brazilian caipirinha, which contains Cachaça with lime juice and cinnamon.
