Clear color. Attractive aromas of fresh meringue, albumen and egg shell, roasted plantain, papaya and apples, and hint of diesel and wax polish with a silky, bright, dryish medium body and a smooth, delightful, long coconut water, spiced brazil nut brittle, hint of white banana leaf ash, and tea finish. A graceful and complex Cachaça with nuanced layers of flavor for sipping or thoughtful 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.
