Father’s Day is coming up this weekend, and we’re looking forward to a fun-filled day celebrating our favorite guys. After a year in lockdown, celebrating holidays this year feels extra special. The pressure is on, however, to find the perfect gift that is unique to both personality and preference.

A Brazilian cachaça brand, Novo Fogo Cachaça is a passionate advocate for sustainable practices. They produce USDA-certified 100% organic cachaças at their zero-waste distillery in the small town of Morretes, located in the heart of the largest protected patch of Brazil’s Atlantic Forest, where the coastal mountains meet the sea. Their Two Woods series is a limited edition series that shines a spotlight on the rare, native trees that are quickly being depleted from the country’s rainforests – many for cachaça use. “Novo Fogo’s commitment to sustainability and environmentally sound practices has been quite literally embedded in the earth that grows our sugarcane since we founded the company,” explains Dragos Axinte, Founder and CEO, Novo Fogo Cachaça. “This is because of where Novo Fogo comes from: our distillery and sugarcane farm are in the largest protected patch of Brazil’s Atlantic Forest. Despite its enormous biodiversity, 88% of the Atlantic Forest has been lost to deforestation and degradation. We produce cachaça in this precious ecosystem, so we have an obligation to practice agricultural and production methods that aren’t detrimental to the natural and human communities that call this place home.”

It’s a wonderful and unique gift that’ll not only impress dad, but support a great cause. Find it here
