"Take Fazenda da Quinta, an artisanal producer deep in the backcountry of Rio de Janiero state: a few hundred acres of cane grown without pesticides, cut by hand, run through a water-wheel-powered, and pot-distilled. Avuá Prata, rested in steel, is soft and creamy, with grassy tequila-like notes and a light but persistent funk or "hogo" that makes you want more. It makes a stellar caipirinha." Dave Wondrich, Esquire

Avuá Oak Cachaça, following Brazilian tradition, is aged for up to 2 years in French Oak, or carvalho, previously used to age white wine. Carvalho, the most common wood used for cachaça-aging in Brazil, imparts notes of vanilla and butterscotch. Oak-aged cachaça finishes dry with a slight bitterness that has many layers for an exquisite sipping spirit. It is also the perfect base for stirred cocktails and tropical cocktails like the Mai Tai or Planter's Punch.
Avuá Amburana Cachaça is aged in Amburana wood, found only in the forests of Latin America. Resting in this indigenous wood produces a stunning mix of WARM and SAVORY notes on the nose and palate that provides a truly unique taste experience for cocktail experimentation or sipping neat. Discover and enjoy our unique hand crafted Avuá Amburana Cachaça cocktails.
"The Avuá Amburana is another thing entirely: It's mellow and smooth from aeration in the wooden tank, but the compounds the spirit pulls out of the wood are anything but familiar. The strong woodiness oak brings in is gone, replaced by juicy black-cherry and spicy caraway notes. The sugarcane funk is still there but softened and diffused. This is a pure sipping spirit and one unlike anything made anywhere else in the world." - Dave Wondrich, Esquire

A note on batching
As with fine wine, our product is produced in an annual growing season and will exhibit differences from batch to batch due to differences in water retention, cane composition and harvest factors. Each of our batches is clearly numbered on batch and bottle numbers–and once they are gone they are gone forever. We stand behind every bottle that we put into the market as being of the highest quality cachaça to be found throughout the world.
