Handmade Cachaça, matured in French oak.

French oak and Brazil have a long history, starting in the 16th century, when Rio de Janeiro was founded by French wood traders. French oak comes from one of five forests, some of which were planted by Napoleon (well, not him personally) to get wood for new ships. French oak barrels are usually more subtle and spicier than the ones made of American oak, making the Spirit maturing in them silky. That's why Avuá, one of the leading distillers of hand-crafted single-sourced Cachaça, decided to mature its so-called "Brazilian Rum" in French oak.

Avuá Cachaça Oak has a deep and rich character with a lovely pale yellow hue, smooth and subtle palate and incredible nose. Wood was carefully selected to reflect the opulence of the distilled fresh sugarcane and the Brazilian terroir. The small, family-owned distillery in the hills of Rio de Janeiro grows its own sugarcane, which is cut by hand, ground with a waterwheel, and fermented with airborne wild yeasts. The Spirit spends two years in French oak casks, and the result is a classic Cachaça with a superior profile, perfect neat or in a tropical cocktail.

Interesting product with a ric...

Interesting product with a rich oak flavor. This is a sugar cane rum which is different from normal molasses rums. I made several Caipirinha's with Auva and Leblon Cachaca, and shared them with friends. Both were good, but the Auva had a lot more fruity flavor, and tasted smoother. The company is looking for investments on WeFunder, and they have several Cachaca's available. Would be worth a trip to Brazil to see their process!
