Cachaça

June 8th, 2016

Cachaça is the national sprit of Brazil and is sometimes called Rum’s Older Cousin.  It is distilled from Sugar Cane Juice and is one of the most consumed distilled spirits in the world.

The Caipirinha cocktail is a delicious drink, is quite easy to make and is quite impressive to serve to your guests.

Novo Fogo makes many different expressions of Cachaça. Novo Fogo produces Cachaça that is certified organic, and they describe their distillery as “zero-waste” facility.
