Cachaça comes directly from fresh cane juice
Unlike traditional Hispanic or English rums, obtained from a residue of sugar cane called molasses, cachaça comes directly from fresh sugar cane juice.
This gives it a natural and authentic taste and brings it closer to the "rhum agricole" produced in the French overseas territories using the same technique.
However, cachaça keeps its specificity because it undergoes a particular fermentation and is distilled between 38 and 48°, unlike "rhum agricole" which usually measures 65-75° before being reduced to the desired degrees by adding water.
Aged in 42 local wood species
Cachaça is one of the few alcoholic beverages that does not age in oak. No less than 42 species of wood from the Brazilian forest are used to make the barrels, tuns and vats used for aging or storing cachaça.
Each wood imparts a characteristic color, scent and flavor; imagine the richness of the aromatic palette resulting from a blend of cachaças aged in different woods!
At Tijuca we have decided to introduce you to the extraordinary diversity of aromatic palettes resulting from these different aging woods. And in addition, our vocation is to mix them to surprise your sensory faculties even more.
This is the party that we have chosen at Tijuca and the results are up to our expectations!
A protected designation of origin
The appellation "cachaça" is protected by law and its production is limited to Brazil.
Cachaça is thus an alcohol whose authenticity and typicality of its geographical origin are strictly regulated.
This makes it possible to guarantee its qualities and the characteristics of its terroir of origin as well as to enhance the know-how of its producers.
Cachaça certainly belongs to the great family of rum, but this Brazilian cousin has a very distinct identity that will seduce you.
TIJUCA spirits come from a subtle blend of different cachaças, worked and refined according to original recipes.
