With this Cachaça originally everything started at Germana. Aged for 2 years, being one year in barrels of French oak and one year in barrels of balsam. Germana Cachaça is ideal for connoisseurs who enjoy a lighter tasting cachaça and love a dry and distinctive flavour which is created by these two special types of wood. The French Oak barrel ageing lends the cachaça a sweet and woody flavour. A very special pleasure of the highest level and a favourite of women in Brazil.
Recommended serve: sip neat or use in a caipirinha.
Germana is a handmade very artisanal Brazilian spirit made in the state of Minas Gerais. Produced from unrefined sugar cane juice and a little corn flour, it is regarded as one of the best quality Cachaças (pronounced “ka-shah-sa”) in this world. It is produced from estate-grown sugarcane cut by hand using machetes and immediately transported to the distillery where it is processed through the one and only electrical machine to extract the juice. Fermentation is dependent on the weather as it is a natural process with natural yeasts made from maize planted at the fazenda (Farm) and can take between 18 to 24 hours. The “sugarcane wine” is then distilled in a copper still.
At Germana, Cachaça is a way of life, a passion. Attention to detail is paramount and they are very proud also of their aged cachaças which can proudly belong to the category of “ Complex Matured Spirits “ such as Cognac, Armagnac Whisky, Calvados, Rum Agricole etc.
