Cachaça
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cachaça (Portuguese pronunciation: [kaˈʃasɐ]) is a liquor made from fermented sugarcane juice.
It is the most popular distilled alcoholic beverage in Brazil. It is also known as aguardente, pinga, caninha and by many other names.
Cachaça is mostly produced in Brazil, where, according to 2007 figures, 1.5 billion litres (390 million gallons) are consumed annually, compared with 15 million litres (4.0 million gallons) outside the country. It is typically between 38% and 48% alcohol by volume. When it is homemade it can be as strong as the distiller wants. Up to six grams per litre of sugar may be added." The major difference between cachaça and rum is that rum is usually made from molasses, a by-product from refineries that boil the cane juice to extract as much sugar crystal as possible, while cachaça is made from fresh sugarcane juice that is fermented and distilled. As some rums are also made by this process, cachaça is also known as Brazilian rum. However, the United States recognized cachaça as a distinctive Brazilian product by signining an agreement with Brazil in which Ron Kirk and Brazil's Fernando Pimentel were involved, which is likely to drop the usage of the expression "Brazilian rum".
In the beginning of the seventeenth century, the producers of sugar in various European colonies in America started to use the by-products of sugar, molasses and scummings, as the raw material for the alcoholic beverage which in British colonies was named rum, in France's tafia, in Spain's aguardiente de caña and in the Portuguese (Brazil) aguardente da terra, aguardente de cana and later cachaça.
Figures from 2003 indicate 1.3 billion litres of cachaça are produced each year though only 1% of this production is exported (mainly to Germany). Outside Brazil, cachaça is used almost exclusively as an ingredient in tropical drinks, with the caipirinha being the most famous cocktail.

History:
Sugar production was switched from Madeira Island to Brazil by the Portuguese in the 16th century. In Madeira Aguardente de cana was made by distilling sugar cane. The pot stills that made Aguardente de cana in Madeira were brought to Brazil to make what is called today Cachaça.
The distillation process dates back to 1532, when one of the Portuguese colonisers brought the first cuttings of sugar cane over to Brazil from Madeira.

Production
Cachaça, like rum, has two products unaged (white) and aged (gold). White cachaça is usually bottled immediately after distillation and tends to be cheaper (some producers age it for up to 12 months in wooden barrels to achieve a smoother blend). It is often used to prepare caipirinha and other beverages in which cachaça is an ingredient. Dark cachaça, usually seen as the "premium" variety, is aged in wood barrels and is meant to be drunk straight (it is usually aged for up to 3 years though some "ultra premium" cachaças have been aged for up to 15 years). Its flavour is influenced by the type of wood the barrel is made from.
There are very important regions in Brazil where fine pot still cachaça is produced such as Salinas in Minas Gerais state, Paraty in Rio de Janeiro state, Monte Alegre do Sul in São Paulo state and Abaíra in Bahia state. Nowadays, cachaça's producers can be found in most Brazilian regions and in 2011 there were over 40,000 of them.Cachaça

History:
Cachaça Colonial bears the concept of tradition in its name. A story which began more than 80 years ago, following the initiative of a pioneer, Tibúrcio Targino, who implanted planting and
production methods of cachaça which has been transmitted and modernized from one generation to the next, with all the quality that the sugarcane grown by Cachaça Colonial has to offer.

It all began in 1923, at the farm called Sítio Colégio, located in the county of Aquiraz. With the increase in production, Cachaça Colonial began expanding its sugarcane plantations to the farming
properties called Jaçanaú and Colonial. Today, the company is responsible for a product of superior quality, appreciated throughout the Brazil and the world for its purity and smoothness. This is
possible because in a shot of Cachaça Colonial, you find the best of the sugarcane and careful aging process, in addition to the packaging process technology.

History:
Joao Luiz is a master cachaça maker from a town near Rio de Janeiro in Brasil. The town is called Miguel Pereira and it is here that Joao Luiz looks after our field of Las Iguanas sugar cane,
harvests it, distils and bottles it before shipping it to us in the UK. His estate is called Fazenda do Anil, or 'indigo farm'

After World War II, 'industrial 'cachaça appeared, produced on a large scale, pushing aside the more traditionally made cachaça from copper stills, called alambiques. Almost 60 years later, cachaça
de alambique production is recovering its lost ground as a premium spirit. Cachaça Magnífica began production in 1985, rapidly becoming one of the leading cachaça de alambique labels on the market.
Produced in the mountains nearby Rio de Janeiro, Magnifica takes care of every step of its production process. From nurturing the sugar cane, to the crushing and distillation in its copper still,
and the process of ageing and bottling, everything is made within the grounds of the estate. Las Iguanas Magnífica ages for at least 2 years in Ipe (a sustainable Brasilian hardwood) and Oak
barrels, acquiring its full flavour and bouquet.

History:
SAFARI was conceived by Cyro E. Eloy, a much-respected Brazilian who founded and still controls a very successful business enterprise, Cyro Eloy Comércio e Indústria Ltda, spanning more than 5 decades in his native country.

For many years Mr. Cyro, a connoisseur of Cachaça, the well-known Brazilian drink, believed the leading brands being promoted in the local market as being 'top of the range' were not a suitable standard for export. Furthermore, most of the Cachaça brands that are being exported certainly could not even be considered to be 'top of the range' by existing local standards. As a businessman who has the courage of his convictions, Mr. Cyro felt that the world at large must be made aware that Cachaça can be produced in commercial volumes to a taste and quality that ranks with the leading liquors of the world. With a very clear goal and strategy that has typified his past business successes, Mr. Cyro decided to develop to his own exacting standards, a very special quality Cachaça intended exclusively for the export market.

The 'Cachaça Cambéba' has been produced since 1808, in the State of Ceará, when the Capitain. José Félix de Azevedo e Sá, began to produce in his lands after returning from Pernambuco`s Province, today , State of Pernambuco, where he was carrying franch pirates to Pernamcuco Province, then they made him a prisoner after combat realized on Ceará`s coast nearby a small town called f Pecém in Caucaia`s city, State of Ceará.

Today the alembic is established in city of Alexânia on State of Goiás, 35 miles from Brasília-DF. The establishment still follows the same process of fabrication since its foundation, where the
malted corn is the key for a good cachaça, and where it is also left for long period in barrels of 'Umburana' a kind of wood typic from Ceará interior giving it the best flavor, smell and
fragrance, that doesn‘t exist anyconfrontation or comparison.

Cachaca Rochinha is one of many premium agricultural products of the Cachoeira Farm in Rio de Janeiro’s beautiful Paraiba Valley. Built circa 1717 and named for the abundance of water and
waterfalls on its lands, Cachoeira Farm was originally a coffee plantation. In 1871, equipment was added to mill sugar cane, and by 1902 this equipment was put to use in the manufacture of cachaça.
Today the impeccably restored farm specializes in cattle breeding and the production of such milled products as brown sugar, traditional sweets like guava paste, and – of course – some of the
nation’s finest cachacas.

Fazenda dos Coqueiros was established in 1855.
[Source: Company's web site, 2010]

The company 'Industria e Comercio de Bebidas Serenata' was founded in 2000 by Mr Waldmir Neiva. Mr Neiva used to produce cachaca in his farm in Sao Goncalo de Sapucai, a small town in the south of the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais, since 1982. In the beginning all the cachaca produced there used to be consumed by friends and, as it started to become famous, in 2000 Mr Neiva decided to found a real company the 'Industria e Comercio de Bebidas Serenata'. The company would be resposable for de industry of the cachaca 'Arte de Minas', for the transportation of the product and for its supply inside the brazilian states.

Our company is settled in the farm 'Fazenda dos Coqueiros' in Sao Goncalo do Sapucai.

In the fisrt years the company had an annual production of 10.000 liters of cachaca. But in 2004, Mr Neiva decided that he also wanted to sell his product worlwide. Therefore he and his family
invested in the industry to make it bigger and to have an annual production of 100.000 liters of 'Arte de Minas'.

The current main market is the brasilian state of Sao Paulo but now that our company has a bigger production we are looking foward to expand our business to other countries.

Cachacas SELETA & BOAZINHA
Seleta and Boazinha Ind. Importacao and Exportacao Ltda., were established in 1. November, 1970 by Mr. Antonio Eustaquio Rodrigues, who produces and bottles cachacas: SELETA & BOAZINHA.

The company, located in the city of Salinas/MG, known as the World-wide Capital of the Cachaca, produces excellent aguardente.

The word SELETA is derived from 'selecao', and it has an eagle as a logo, wich expresses a bird that always searchs the heights, to enlarge its horizontes. The BOAZINHA received its name from the
proper consumer.

With more than 30 years of tradition, the cachaca is aged in wooden barrels for 02 the 03 years. The SELETA is aged in special barrels, that ware used for medicins treating infection of throat or
being used as digestive. The BOAZINHA is aged in barrels from a balsam, that is used for threatments of wounds.

Antonio Eustsquio Rodrigues
Antonio Eustsquio Rodrigues was born in 22. October, 1948 in Salinas/MG, as the son of Antonio Rodrigues Da Silva and Dona Aniselina Coast.

He started to work already since he has been seven. Passed some time, and the boy wanted to leave the studies and work in the opening of a dam. But concluding that the service was very heavy, he
returned to the studies, to conclude the gymnasium in the Agricultural School.

Later he opened in his house a store where he sold cereals.

Later he started to sell spirits that he bought from others, bottling and selling it as 'BOAZINHA'. But then he started to manufacture proper cachaca, the 'SELETA one', as it is today, known even
in the exterior.

In May 17 1977, Rodrigues married Maria Eunice Silva, who had four children: Renata Romualdo Rodrigues, Antonio Eustsquio Rodrigues Son, Fernanda Romualdo Rodrigues and Daniela Romualdo Rodrigues.

History:
Cachaça Rainha do Vale is the consequence of its producers’ vocation. In 1994, the brothers Márcio, Marisa e Tomás Vieira de Moura, thinking in a new professional activity, concluded that their
vocation was connected with their origins, the rural activity.

They also concluded that, according to their education, they should be linked to something which claimed for quality and expressed their love for their land and culture.

They studied various option and decided to produce on the Gameleira farm, in Belo Vale – M.G., where they were born, the cachaça Rainha do Vale, with the purpose of producing a cachaça of very high quality. The preservation of the nature has also deserved special attention. The project was accomplished after a long period of research on the process of production and also the cachaça market. We have collected information, visited institutions, alembics, suppliers, and token courses.

Thus, the first vintage of the cachaça Rainha do Vale was distilled in 1997, through a improved process, according to the AMPAQ ( Mineira Association of Producers of Cachaças of Quality)
principals. Tradition is an indispensable ingredient for a good cachaça. The quality was maintained and improved throughout the centuries because of the tradition. And the most pure and delicious
cachaças in Brazil is a tradition of Minas Gerais. Maintaining the tradition of Minas Gerais in the production of craft cachaças, Rainha do Vale is produced in facilities designed specially for
this activity, with the purpose of reaching quality.

History:
1960 José Maria Santana with the nickname “Zé Santana” began to produce sugar cane distillate (Cachaça) with a small water operated millstone. His product was brought by oxen from cattle dealers to regional markets to be sold. The good reputation spread in the region and arised the demand, therefore the small machine was substituted by a big steam operated one. 1965 the brand Guaraciaba was registrated, the oxen were substituted by a truck and after a while the brand turned to the most favourite in the capital of Minas Grais, Belo Horizonte.

1983 the enterprise lost with the death of “Zé Santana”, who died of Hepatitis B, an important drive of an entrepreneur and the vision of a businessman. Besides the lost of the entrepreneur the
crisis of the small cachaça created problems. The price of the product declined (the big gasoline factories started to produce liquor too), but the factory did not have to close their doors, like
many others.

Headquartered in Gamelleira Farms and Forest of horses, besides the production of cachaça quality, participate in other sectors of agriculture by planting coffee and fattening of cattle, which puts
us as the only option in the generation of employment and income for several people from the village of St Cajetan, Chapel of the municipality.

Chapel Mine has a tradition of over 80 years in the market of rum.

It all started with Mr. José Rocha da Silva who produced cachaça 'Providence', famous across the region, from the office to their successors. For patent issues cachaça was renamed 'Chapel Mine',
but carries a long tradition of quality.

History:
Armazem Cachaca and Emporio Cachaca are distilled using traditional methods at production, storage and processing facilities in Fazenda Muzambinho, located in the State of Minas Gerais, Brazil. The alcohol content of both is 40% by volume and are distilled from sugar cane (99,6%) and corn (0,4%). Both cachacas are available in bottles of 700 ml. and 50 ml. The premium Emporio Cachaca is gold, aged 5 years in imported barrels of oak, while Amazem Cachaca is silver, aged two years in barrels of jequitiba rosa, a native tree from the tropical and subtropical Atlantic forest that extends along the coast of Brazil.

The Muzambinho brand is the fruit of a passion which started in 1924, when Mr. Lauro Campedelli of the town of Muzambinho in the south of Minas Gerais, Brazil installed a small cooper still in his
farm to serve his needs and those of his friends. Since that time, the Santo Antonio do Campestre Farm has been creating small batch, hand made cachaca for an expanding circle of friends in Brazil
and throughout the world. The process starts with four special species of sugar cane, which is grown only on the Muzambinho Farm. This sugar cane is harvest by hand, and immediately squeezed to
form the sugar cane juice soup that is the basis of cachaca. Then, totally natural fermenting agents are added to gradually ferment the mixture over a long period of time. This long ferment time
helps to bring out the aromatics of the nascent cachaca. The mix is distilled the old fashioned way, in small copper stills. The master distiller selects only the best 'heart' of the resulting mix
for aging. The resulting mixture is aged for two years in a light colored wood, Jequitiba Rosa. The resulting smooth cachaca remains clear with a very light tint, yet with none of the harsh
overtones and strong alcoholic taste of industrial cachaca. The resulting product is bottled at the ranch, and sold as Muzambinho Armazem Prata.

History:
'Santa Rosa da Cachoeira' was founded by the couple Joaquim Marques da Silva and Faustina Angélica de Moura, who become in few years successful farmers in the neighborhoods of just established village of Valença. Marques da Silva had many children. After his death the widow and the inheriting children sold the farm to diverse people.

In 1839, the Santa Rosa was bought by Eleutério Delfim da Silva. Eleutério extended the coffee plantations and acquired more land, making to grow his property. Beyond the coffee, the Fazenda Santa Rosa produced everything. Cassava sugar, algodao, maize, flour and aguardente are its products until the current days.

Eleutério was an ambitious man, he invested in everything he had in his property, or he could obtain, however, his farm was mortgaged. In 1852 became Santa Rosa the propertety of his creditor Joao Pereira Darrigue Faro - future Visconde do Rio Bonito. He sold it in the same year to Antônio Vieira Machado. Antônio Vieira Machado, deriving of Paty do Alferes second lieutenant, became rich because of the coffee. He built in the year 1856 the greatest and most beautiful residence of the city Valença. When Machado died his heirs were not able to finish such workmanship.

In 1858 they sold the farm to the future Comendador Manoel Antônio Rodrigues Guiao, also already established with farm in the neighborhood. Comendador Guiao managed the farm until hits death in 1872, when the coffee started to decline slowly. The widow, Dona Íria Umbelina Vieira Guiao, with still lesser children, managed the farm with difficulties. Bogged in debts and with the mortgaged farms, she had to let it to the main creditor, trader Vito Pentagna. In 1871 Aguardente de Cana Santa Rosa apeared.

Nicolau, Vito and Caetano Pentagna came from San Giovanni Di Piro, province of Salermo - Italia to Brazil in the end of the 19. century. In Valença they where established with great commercial
house. In little time they were the strongest traders of the city. Vito decided to become a farmer, and became one of the most advanced farmers of the city.

Vito Pentagna died in 1914. The widow, Dona Urbana de Castro Pentagna, passed the administration of the farm to the children Savério and Humberto de Castro Pentagna. They were succeeded by children and grandsons, in whose ownership the farm remains until today.

History:
Armazem Vieira is the name of the historical building that was originally established in 1840. Located in Florianópolis, the capital city of the State of Santa Catarina in Southern Brazil. The
bottlery is situated in the bairro (neighborhood) of Saco dos Limoes ('Lemon Cove') at the junction of the trials 'Caminho da Gema d'Ovo' and the old road to 'Freguesia Nossa Senhora da Lapa do
Ribeirao'. Historically one of the first trails that was established on the island in the 18th Century.

This classic building, known in Brazil as a 'casarao', has it origin of Masonic and reflects a strong Azorean influence. The 'casarao' shelter a promotional bar and the large wooden vats, in which
this unique and special blend of cachaça is carefully aged after produced from the boiled syrup of sugar cane cultivated in the southern region of Santa Catarina.

In 1915 renovations were made in accordance with the style and times of that era in history. The original owner, Sergio Vieira, maintained an 'Armazem' (the name for a trading post) hence the name 'Armazem Vieira'.

In 1985, restoration of the historical sight resumed, in order to accommodate the distillery and a bar. On April 26, 1984, by Municipal Decree 063/84, Armazem Vieira Bar & Distillery was recognized
by the 'Câmara de Vereadores' (City Council) of Florianópolis as an authentic historical site.

The ambience of the bar reflects the Art Nouveaux era. Authentic tables and chairs of the early century compliment the architectural aspects of the building. Situated between the vats and the bar
is a bottling facility utilizing antique equipment together with modern technology, in accordance with the regulations established by the Ministry of Agriculture, who is responsible for regulating
the production of alcoholic beverages. The bottling factory was established and licensed under the number 42.1.00235-2 on April 6, 1987.

At this location, the owners of the building and the brand Armazem Vieira, conducted research with regard to the traditional methods utilized in the coastal regions of the Island of Santa Catarina.
This research also resulted in the selection of a distiller capable and willing to produce the aguardente by traditional method in accordance with the ideals of Armazem Vieira owns.

History:
It can be said that the chemist Octávio Carvalheira has his story related to cachaças. Most of his professional life was dedicated to helping other companies produce sugar, alcohol and
'aguardente'. Since November, 1949, when he was hired by the plant 'Rio Una', located in Barreiros-PE, to run the nearby anidro alcohol distillery, and, after that, as a sugar and alcohol chemist
of the two plants of Group Othon ('Rio Una' and 'Santo André') and, from 1961 to 1967, director of the four plants of the same group.

From 1967 on, he continued linked to the sugar and alcohol industry, as consultant of several plants and distilleries. Managing Tecal - Sugar Technology Ltda., established in 1975, he lead more
than 60 northeastern companies of sugar, alcohol and 'aguardente' (sugar cane spirits), with projects for PROÁLCOOL.

It was after a trip to Cuba, country that he visited in May 1993, to take part at the Seminario International Del Azúcar e Derivados de la Cana, that he suggested to Termo Técnica Ltd., a company from Pernambuco that has Eduardo Carvalheira and Fernando Remígio in leading positions, the acquisition of the technology to use beer yeast in the human feeding from the Cuban Institute of Investigaciones of Derived los of la Cana of Azúcar - I.C.I.D.C.A.

His son, Eduardo Carvalheira, always liked making his own experiments with cachaça, promoting infusions of tropical fruits and regional herbs, searching continuously a technology to improve the
quality of sugar cane spirits produced with raw sugar cane in Pernambuco.

After that, Eduardo and Fernando decided to visit Cuba and hire technicians from that institute to develop in Recife the technology of leavenings. Then PROLEV production of yeasts and other dietary foods produced by Termo Técnica came to life.

In 1995, there was the great chance to start the commercial production of aged cachaça, conceived by Eduardo. That year, thousands of white oak barrels, each one with 150 or 200 liters of capacity,
were acquired. So far they had been used only in rum aging process.

With the oak barrels, Eduardo and Fernando obtained with technicians from Fidel Castro's island the cachaça aging technology, similar to rum's aging. Then they started the aging process of Cachaça Carvalheira.

The whole work was supervised by Cuban technicians, step by step. It resulted in a differentiated product in the regional market. It doesn't receive any strange product or pigment, being bottled as
it leaves the barrel, after a minimum period of three years, filtration and quality control analyses.

Releases:
In 2001, CARVALHEIRA LEMON FLOWER was introduced to the regional market. Composed raw cachaça, with natural aroma of lemon, to be drunk pure, frozen or as 'caipirinha', as it's best known in national and international markets.

Carvalheira intends to release more four types of cachaças 'special selection' in 2002 and 2003, all aged in oak barrels, already in final tests before launching, whose marks and compositions are
discriminated below:

Composed Cachaça CARVALHEIRA PORTO RECIFE: cachaça aged, with infusion of fruit raisins and sugar, 38% alcohol, at 20°C, well appreciated by the female consumers;
Composed Cachaça CARVALHEIRA CINNAMON: aged cachaça, with natural cinnamon aroma and 38% alcohol, at 20°C, good for cocktails and cookery;
Composed Cachaça CARVALHEIRA RAÍZES (ROOTS): aged cachaça, with roots' infusion for a period of six months, 38% alcohol, at20°C, dry and sophisticated;
CACHAÇA CARVALHEIRA GRAO FINO (FINE GRAIN): raw cachaça aged for a minimum period of ten (10) years, 38% alcohol, at 20°C - Special Premium Reserve - thickened and velvety.
Name Origin:

The name - Carvalheira - is homage to the family, whose founder came from Portugal to Brazil in middle 19th century.

This name is also very suggestive, for it means a great oak tree, with lots of leaves.

soft or 'round' flavor.

fermentation and in presence of oxygen, that penetrates through wood pores, together with natural oak extracts, mainly the 'tanning bark', its sensorial qualities improve significantly: they
acquire a better aroma, aged gold color, fine and velvety flavor.

added to the main esters, also originated during the conservation, and give to Cachaça Carvalheira a set of noble qualities. To the result is given the suggestive name of 'round taste' and 'amazing
flavor'.

History:
1st Generation: Dario Telles de Menezes
As he landed in the state of Ceará in 1846 Dario Telles, a Portuguese of keen foresight, brought along the secrets of the finest European destillates. After settling in the city of Maranguape, he
set up a prosperous still which he baptized Ypióca. It all started with a small ceramic alembic he had carried along from Portugal.

2nd Generation: Dario Borges Telles Although the second generation, led by captain Dario Borges Telles, introduced cast iron stills, processing was still entirely manual.

3nd Generation: Paulo Campos Telles
In 1929 Paulo Campos Telles took over and brought about important innovations such as bottling liters with a precision dropper and aging in balsamic barrels which allowed stocking for periods of
over two years.

4nd Generation: Everardo Ferreira Telles
In1968 the fourth generation, under the guidance of Everardo Ferreira Telles, assumed control of the enterprise and brought about significant innovations and state of the art technology. This
originated new additional establishments as well as a diversified range of products thus making Ypióca one of the most solid beverage companies in the country.

Company
The company have a five factories, located in the areas where the culture of the sugar cane prevails, around Fortaleza-CE.
The first factory is located in Maranguape, only 30 Km from Fortaleza. Here, the entire production is aged in barrels made of medicinal and aromatic wood much like the 'balsamo' used by the first
generations. The firm's original premises, also in Maranguape, house the Ypióca Museum where equipments and machines from the 19th century can be admired.

The second Cachaca factory is located in Pecém, a small town on the coast of Ceará. It is surrounded by its own sugar cane plantations and also uses barrels of balsamic wood in the production and aging process of the spirit.

The firm's third and fourth factories are in Pindoretama and Acarape, near the coastline of Ceará. Here, the company owns immense, irrigated sugar cane plantations that supply the factories.

In addition to the extensive production, the factories are strategically located near the city of Pacajus, the main supplier of cashew, used to manufacture Acayú.

The fifth factory in Paraipaba, is Ypióca's largest in Brazil, Bordered by magnificent, irrigated sugar cane plantations, this factory was implanted in 1996 over 1500 hectares and counts on the
latest breakthroughs in modern technology relative to the sector. This factory is also responsible for generating employment in the measure of thousands of direct and indirect jobs which, together
to those created by the firm's other enterprises, add to over 20,000 in Brazil.
