Terra Vermelha - 100% Organic CachacaAged in Jequitiba Rosa Barrels
Terra Vermelha 100% Organic Cachaca is a handcrafted product produced by an environmentally friendly company in the South of Brazil.
The distillery is certified organic by the IBD (Institutio Biodinamico), USDA and IFOAM. It has also recently received accreditation from the OFF (Organic Food Federation) in the UK.
The organic sugar cane is hand harvested and the juice is organically fermented. This is then put through traditional copper pot stills. Only the 'heart' of the distillation is used in the production of Terra Vermelha. The cachaca is rested for between 6 and 12 months in purpose built barrels made of jequitiba rosa, a noble Brazilian hard wood which is considered to be neutral in flavour.
Terra Vermelha has an incredibly fresh and fruity flavour profile. Clean, lively fruit and sugar cane dominate on the nose and then follow through onto the palate. The cachaca is very smooth and supple with a great freshness.
