Abelha Organic Cachaça expands their line of Brazilian-style Spirits with a well-aged sipper aged in exotic Garapeira wood casks.
The Responsible Trading company has partnered with Fazenda Vaccaro Farm in Brazil to produce and distribute Cachaça. In Portuguese, "abelha" means bee… as in honeybee. Abelha Organic Cachaça is the claim to fame for Marcos Vaccaro, Tom Stockley, and the rest of the team. Headquartered in Bristol, U.K., Abelha has developed an un-aged "silver" Cachaça and a rested "gold" Cachaça that have launched in the US and Europe this year.
Abelha Organic Cachaça Ouro starts with the same, pure cane Spirit that gives rise to the Prata edition from sweet, first-pressed cane juice. But "ouro" means "gold" in Brazilian Portuguese. This gold comes from aging in special sixty-five gallon casks made from an exotic wood from the ash native to Brazil called Garapeira — adding a truly unique entry flavor and back palate. And just like its un-aged sibling Spirit, it’s certified organic, gluten free, and vegan friendly.
Cachaça is the national Spirit of Brazil. It is similar to Rum. But Cachaça can only be made from fresh-pressed cane juice while Rum can be made from molasses, cane juice, or a combination of the two. Rum Agricole follows the Cachaça process.
