PRODUCTION DETAILS: This is a perfect sample of the signature spirit of Brazil, the cachaça. The exact recipe for crafting this spirit remains a secret of the house, but some key aspects give light over what makes Cachaça Leblon so special. Fabricated from the fermented products of freshly pressed sugar cane and not the molasses as is the case with dark rums, the time of fermentation, the temperature, and the exact string of yeast are carefully controlled to produce this liqueur. Once the distillate is obtained, it begins a journey from Brazil to the south of France where it is matured in cognac casks sometime between one and three months. This ageing stage is what provides the layers of complexity and the subtle oak taste distinguishable on the palate. The light nature makes it perfect for preparing mixed drinks and cocktails, so it is a favourite among bartenders.
