Default PITU, Leblon, and Agua Luca

I have three new sample bottles coming in as I will be doing some Cachaca reviews this summer. My information regarding these brands is rather limited.

Pitú Cachaca is produced by Engarrafamento Pitu Ltda., a 75 year old old family rum company located within the State of Pernambuco, in northeast Brazil. Their Cachaca is made from the juice of newly harvested sugar cane cuts which are first milled to extract the juice, then filtered and fermented before undergoing a simple distillation process with the final product rested in marrying tanks to soothe the final flavour before bottling.

Leblon Cachaça is produced at the Leblon distillery in Patos de Minas, in the center of Brazil's major sugar cane growing region. At Leblon they use both traditional and European winemaking techniques to produce their Cachca. According to the Leblon website:

"Gilles Merlet, famous master distiller from the Cognac region of France, takes Cachaça to a whole new level with his ‘French touch,’ transforming our distillery in Patos de Minas to the state-of-the-art Maison Leblon. Gilles produces small batches using alembique copper potstills, then polishes the Cachaça in XO Cognac Casks for an ultra-smooth taste. The Cachaça is then blended across batches for flavor complexity, body, and aroma."

Agua Luca (a product of Agua Luca Distilled Spirits is distilled from the fermented juice of hand cut sugar cane with 24 hours of the harvest. The resulting distillate is then filtered 12 times prior to bottling.

If anyone can add any information about these three brands, I would love to know more, particularly Agua Luca of which the only information regarding its origin that I can find is that it is made in Brazil but appears to be headquartered in Bardstowm Kentucky.
