Biodiversity in a bottle

The Mata Atlântica forest concentrates an exceptionally dense biodiversity. There are about 20,000 species of plants, 8,000 of which are found only in these woods, not to mention a very rich and diversified fauna.

It is from this ecological jewel that the trees come from: jequitibá, amburana, ipê, bálsamo and pau brasil which are used to make the barrels in which our cachaças age. The reasoned management of these resources allows our producers to preserve the forest while having the wood necessary for ageing.

(Cariniana sp.)


Jequitibá gives our spirits a golden color, pleasant aromas and a complex bouquet, comparable to the profile obtained with oak.

Amburana gives our spirits an intense color, a characteristic aroma bouquet with hints of vanilla and a slightly sweet flavor.

(Handroanthus sp.)


Ipê, a very fine-grained wood, has the particularity of giving the distillate a beautiful copper color, as well as marked notes of nuts.

Myrocarpus frondosus


Thanks to the bálsamo, the cachaça takes on a golden color with greenish tones and intense aromas characterized by herbaceous and spicy notes, such as anise, cloves and fennel, as well as the sensation of spiciness and astringency in the distillate.

(Paubrasilia echinata)


Pau brasil, the tree producing a red dye like "embers" which bequeathed its name to the country adds a note of bitters to our blend.

And to finish, let's not forget the French oak, lord of the aging woods, which made it possible to raise one of our cachaças and has a good surprise in store for us thanks to the finish in white port casks of our TIJUCA Blended Brazilian Rum.
