The prominent characteristic of Germana’s Caetanos Cachaça is its fruity flavour, slightly sweet thanks to cerejeira, also known as cherry tree used to make the Umburana barrels. This is achieved by ageing for two years in Umburana barrels. During ageing of this type of wood, the Cachaça receives a beautiful light yellowish colour and a rounded sweet taste. Ideal for lovers of a Cachaça aged in the most traditional Brazilian wood.
Recommended serve: sip neat out of the fridge, red fruit caipifruta like strawberry and raspberry and batidas.
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.
