Product description

Our “Tanager” expression is the first two-woods cachaça broadly available in the USA and it mixes the Brazilian South’s two favorite woods. We age this cachaça in repurposed oak barrels and finish it in casks of arariba (Brazilian zebrawood) for a natural red color and a distinctive mountain earthiness. This truly unique cachaça suggests tropical fruit, grass, cinnamon bark, and other holiday spices; it can be sipped alone or as the base spirit in twists of classic cocktails like the Sazerac.

FAQs

The national spirit of Brazil, cachaça (pronounced as kah-SHAH-sah), is a distilled spirit made from pure sugar cane juice. Many people mistake it for rum; in fact, cachaça is its own drink and often sells better than both gin and tequila.
Cachaça comes from pure, freshly pressed Brazilian sugar cane and comes from Brazil's over 3,000 legal (and just as many illegal) distilleries. The distillers ferment the juice with yeast, converting the sugar to alcohol, then distill it using copper still pots to reach around 40% ABV. Aging usually occurs in French or American oak barrels or using indigenous woods to offer widely varying flavor profiles.
No, cachaça is not rum — though it was originally listed as a type of rum when it was first imported to the USA. It likely predates rum by a long shot, and though both are sugar-based distillates, cachaça comes from fresh-pressed sugar cane juice, while rum usually comes from molasses or other sugar byproducts. Cachaça also tastes different from rum, with a more subtle sweetness and a raw, fruity taste.
