In the hills of Carmo near Rio de Janeiro, Avuá Cachaça begins in the single-estate sugarcane fields of a small, family-owned farm. It is produced by one of Brazil’s top female distillers using a family recipe honed over three generations.
Avuá Copan Limited Edition Aged Cachaça is aged for over one year in tapinhoā barrels. Tapinhoā is an extremely rare hardwood found in parts of South America. These barrels impart soft sweet notes of fresh honeycomb & caramel.
After aging, Avuá Copan Limited Edition Aged Cachaça is finished in a large Hardy cognac cask (pictured here) that retains the cognac soak for nine months. It rests for more than six months in the cask, imbuing the spirit with the rich, refined flavors of Hardy Cognac.
