A delightful Brazilian Cachaça with a bright, fruity profile.
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 Prata is the clear version of Cachaça — the word "prata" means "silver" in Brazilian Portuguese. But in this case, the silver Spirit does not mean neglected. After distillation, Abelha Organic Cachaça Prata is rested in open-air, stainless steel for six months to allow the flavors to develop. It is bottled at 40% ABV with zero added sugars. And 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.
