Novo Fogo Single Barrel 89 Cachaça
Novo Fogo // Brazil
Distilled in 2004, this cachaça was probably one of the very first batches produced by Novo Fogo. The distillery uses repurposed oak for aging, where a bourbon barrel is taken apart for the staves to be sanded down, re-charred, and re-built into a new one. Barrel number 89 sat for roughly 9 years before bottling in 2013. Currently sold out, only 240 bottles were ever released in 2014.
CachaçaProduced in Brazil. Distilled from sugarcane juice. If aged, at least 50% of product must be at least 1 year old. The types of barrels used are not specified, but often utilize Brazilian wood. Up to 6 grams of sugar per liter may be added.
