Default Cachaзa in Europe

A friend of mine is implementing a cocktail programme in Paris and was asking for recommendations for decent cachaзa that is imported and distributed thereabouts. Cachaзa is somewhat outside his---and my---areas of knowledge, but he knows this bar needs to stock some for the inevitable caipirinha-orderers, and he prefers to support the better makers. Any tips from anybody?

One cachaca that is readily available, and of middling quality is the Pitu brand. I've purchased this in duty free in Germany, and it seems to be the most commonly exported brand of cachaca worldwide.

Yea, I'm hoping for some more compelling options than Pitu.

Hi, I don't know if your friend has the possibility to go to London, but if he's ever there he might want to look into the options at
"The Whisky Exchange" . I just scrolled through and he just might find something of interest:

Is Cachaca 61 any good? it is the only Cachaca available in Vancouver, Canada.

If not, I guess I'll wait until I get the chance to go to Las Vegas, and I'll bring back some Agua Luca.

contact John Gakuru (John@sagatiba.com) who have great product plus deep pockets.

Otherwise UK is probably your best bet with Ypioca, Carioca, Germana and many others...

Mention my name and get a wry smile...

I've had Cachaзa 51, but never heard of Cachaзa 61. Cachaзa 51 is produced by a large distillery so consistency isn't a problem as it can be at some of the smaller producers. I don't drink a lot of cachaзa, but I don't find that one disagreeable when mixed in cocktails.

In Brazil rum is a very different spirit compared to cachaзa. Rum is made from molasses and cachaзa is made from sugar cane juice.

When ever I'm in a new location, I always try to sample as many different spirits as possible. Though conditions sometimes dictate otherwise, I try to taste spirits neat. If I find the spirit to be offensive neat, I don't really want to drink it covered up with some, generally, sweet mixer.

I also ask local people what they like to drink and why. I've discovered some amazing spirits simply talking to people I've met along the way. If you can find and visit the distilleries you'll probably find some better spirits which you won't find anywhere else.

Happy hunting.
