One year old and stubborn. Crystal clear and sweet with a pleasant surprise in the aftertaste: a flowery taste. Very subtle. This is due to the jequitibá wood used in the maturing process. It is a classic cachaça, but due to the short maturation its temper is a bit restrained.
Perfect for making cocktails, but slightly different. For the open-minded fans who want to venture off the beaten cachaça path. It won a 2014 gold award at the Concours Mondial Bruxelas.
The distillers pride themselves on quality, and everything from raw materials to the final product is 100% sustainably produced. Moreover, they have the AMPAQ label; the association in Brazil that monitors the quality of cachaça's. The family also organizes training for producing artisanal cachaça at their fazenda Taverna Ribeiro Real (Royal tavern) in Itaverava.
