Nega Fulo Carvalho, Cachaca, 38%

Cachaça.

Until recently I wouldn’t have known much about this distilled spirit.

Geographically Protected (GI) to Brazil, made using sugarcane juice and according to some sources – the 3rd biggest selling spirits category in the world.

Being National Cachaça Day on the 13th September – I was keen to explore.

Brazilian Cachaca c/othewhiskeynut

Nêga Fulô Carvalho is made by Fazenda Soledade Ind De Bedibas near Rio.

Pale straw in colour – suggesting some ageing in wooden casks.

Those distinctive fresh grassy notes of sugarcane juice distillation are evident on the nose.

A smooth, sweet & gentle palate displaying freshness & vitality slowly develops a warming heat.

Touches of soft prickly spiciness enliven the finish which slowly fades away with tropical juiciness.

A very pleasant & easy introduction into the world of Cachaça – the spirit of Brazil.
