Cachaca sao paulo is produced using the artisanal method of distillation called alambique. The sao paulo distillery has been perfecting this traditional method since 1909. 40% abv our cachaca is produced from sugarcane grown and harvested at the distillery. The sugarcane is harvested by hand and trimmed leaving the heart of the stalk. It is then washed and pressed to extract the juice. The juice undergoes a filtration process to remove any impurities before undergoing fermentation. The alambique method unlike industrial methods of producing cachaca is all natural using no chemical additives to speed up the fermentation process. The fermentation process takes approximately 24 hours to complete. Cachaca sao paulo is distilled in copper pot stills which preserve the aroma and taste of the sugarcane. After distillation the cachaca is aged in wooden barrels for a minimum of four months. The result of this process is a pure premium cachaca with a smooth natural flavor.
A complex and interesting cachaça, look for a funky, bright tropical fruit aroma and rounded, bold lychee and creamy banana flavors topped with caramelized sugar and ginger spice. KARA NEWMAN
