Avuá Amburana (Aged) Brazilian Cachaça

$55.00

This exceptional cachaça comes to us from a family owned distillery established in 1923. This expression, aged in amburana wood, evokes the warmth, passion, and vitality of the people's spirit of Brazil. 

The Avuá Amburana is another thing entirely: It's mellow and smooth from aeration in the wooden tank, but the compounds the spirit pulls out of the wood are anything but familiar. The strong woodiness oak brings in is gone, replaced by juicy black-cherry and spicy caraway notes. This is a pure sipping spirit and one unlike anything made anywhere else in the world." Dave Wondrich, Esquire

750ml & 80 Proof

Tasting Notes Cardamom, anise, allspice, banana, passionfruit and a hint of nutmeg on the nose. Herbaceous palate, nutmeg, hay, and cinnamon to begin, followed by sweet overripe banana and dried apricot. Citrus peel on the back end. The finish is warm and spicy, with wood notes and tropical fruit.
Ways to Enjoy
Classic: Could it be anything other than the caipirinha?

Unexpected: Cafe Marumbi, a bright coffee cocktail perfect for late-morning wake-ups and early afternoon lounging

Production Notes

Avuá Cachaça is a single sourced and pot distilled spirit. Travel four hours north of Rio de Janeiro, and you'll find Fazenda da Quinta, the farm where the Avuá sugarcane is cultivated. During harvest season, this estate-grown sugarcane is hand cut and, within four hours, pressed by a water-wheel powered mill, followed by wild yeast fermentation for twenty-four hours. This culminates with a single distillation in an alembic pot still and on-site aging.

The Amburana is aged for up to two years in casks made from the rare Amburana wood.  Avuá takes great care to ensure the wood used for its aging is sourced sustainably. Through replanting and careful forest management, Avuá production works in harmony to support the flourishing and expansion of Brazil's most precious ecological resources.

Like wine, cachaça production is tied to the annual growing season.  This means each batch exhibits differences that reflect the yearly variance in climate, sugarcane growth, and harvest.  Batches are clearly numbered on the bottles to reflect the season in which the sugarcane was grown. Each season's batches are then a naturally limited run.
Terroir
Avuá sugarcane is grown in a hilly area near the border of Minas Gerais and Rio de Janeiro. This area, traditionally used for sugarcane and then coffee production, was a part of trade networks along the Rio Paraiba to move gold and other commodities for transport back to Portugal.

Each cane field produces one type of cane and each field goes into one lot of Avuá, giving each lot a subtly distinct taste.

Please drink responsibly.
