Clear color. Aromas and flavors of black olive tapenade, dried grasses, grilled tomato, raisin toast, and ripe papaya with a round, vibrant, dryish medium body and a smooth, intricate, long finish conveying elements of salty pao de queijo, black bean spread, and grilled pineapple finish. A round and supple Cachaca with extroverted vegetal notes and exceptional texture; for spirits connoisseurs and fine cocktails.

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.
