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.
"The aroma packs a fruity punch with ripe, tropical flavors - papaya, mango, guava, pineapple, coconut, and banana. On the palate, the fruit mixes with sage, thyme, roasted walnuts, and wild flowers. The somewhat viscous finish keeps those flavors going with a dose of fresh sweetness and a bit of alcohol heat. "
