Consumers and bartenders alike have become increasingly interested in Cachaça. One of the best known producers is Novo Fogo. Beloved for both their commitment to sustainability and their ceaseless innovation, the small but impactful Brazilian brand has been making a name for themselves by releasing intriguing special editions. The latest special offering is Novo Fogo Colibri, which is the Portuguese word for “hummingbird,” and was released this past Monday. Colibri is an expression of cachaça that was created by moving the liquid back and forth between repurposed oak barrels and Brazilian teak (amburana) barrels.
