Brazilian-made Yaguara Cachaça (the name is Portuguese for "jaguar") is a blend of spirits distilled from raw sugarcane juice overseen by Master Blender Erwin Weimann. This triple-filtered, organic white cachaça first launched in 2013 and debuted in the US a year later. Inspiration for the unique bottle design was drawn from the sidewalks of Copacabana beach in Rio de Janeiro, interpreted by UK-based glass artist Brian Clarke.

Tasting Notes

"In the UK, the term "pear-shaped" refers to something gone wrong, but in this case, it best describes the initial aromas and flavors, which are all about pears - both fruit and skin. Further sips reveal green tea and grassier notes, with a hint of walnut and fresh, sugary sweetness. It finishes slightly hot, but with more of that clean sweetness lingering on the palate. "
