What is Cachaça?

Cachaça (pronounced: ka-sha-sa), is a distilled sugar cane spirit from the rum family, sacred to Brazil and Brazilian culture.

 

Unlike rum, it is made from fermented sugar cane juices rather than molasses – cut fresh and processed the same day.

Our Range

Everything we make is artisanal, small-batch, and certified organic.
We produce two exceptional expressions: Abelha Prata/Silver and Abelha Ouro/Gold

Abelha Cachaça Prata

Abelha Organic Cachaça is made with care – for the craft, for the cane, and for the community.

 

Abelha Prata is a full-flavored artisanal cachaça, with an intense, fruity, aromatic nose; fresh sugar cane and stone fruits on the palate; and a smooth dry finish. To create the distinctive character of Abelha Prata, we rest the cachaça for 6 months in open steel tanks, allowing the by-products to evaporate and oxidize, which gives the cachaça its signature bouquet. No sugar is added, and there are no impurities or toxins in the cachaça, resulting in fresh aromas when you open a bottle and pure flavors when you take a sip.

Abelha Cachaça Ouro

Abelha Organic Cachaça is made with care – for the craft, for the cane, and for the community.

 

Abelha Ouro is a complex yet approachable aged cachaça. The honeyed nose is brightened with notes of tropical fruit, and the palate is rich with stone fruit, balsamic and spice notes. We achieve this remarkable flavor profile by aging our cachaça for 3 years in 65 gallon Garapeira casks (a native Brazilian ash, Garapeira is highly valued by cachaça producers because it enhances the natural flavor of the spirit with a multifaceted layer of sweetness and spice). Our cachaça has no added sugar or additives of any kind.

Our Farmer Partners

The Abelha Distillery aims to improve the local farmers’ living standards and the distillery has promoted a collective organization of organic agriculture. We are one of the only private Brazilian enterprises with a social rural project.

 

The Fazenda puts 60% of the production capacity of its stills at the disposal of those partners who are prepared to adopt an organic agriculture system.

 

Five partners have already been certified, with several others receiving training and support throughout the process.
