Barrel-Aged Cachaça

Our Barrel-Aged Cachaça is distilled in 53-gallon American oak bourbon barrels that are taken apart, sanded, and re-toasted. The 2-3 year process takes place in the heat and humidity of our home in the Atlantic Rainforest. The result is banana bread with notes of chocolate, cinnamon bark, and coffee.

Aged cachaça can take on flavor notes from their barrels and can taste like:
