Default Info on Fulo Products

Greetings,

I recently received three bottles of cachaca from friends in southern Brasil
(Porto Alegre in Rio Grande so Sul). Two were 'Nega Fulo', one in a regular glass bottle(which included two 'cachaca glasses'), one in a very decorative terra cotta vessel (which I plan on displaying unopened....) This cachaca is light gold, and pretty 'intense' when drunk 'pura'--I can see how some equate cachaca as having flavors in between rum and tequila. It did make EXCELLENT caipirinhas, however. Looking on the Fulo website (only in Portugues....), I noticed that they also make 'lighter' and 'darker' products (labeled 'Fulo 1827'). Does anyone know the aging of the various Fulo products ?--I could not see it anywhere on the bottle or website. Of interest, it seems that the color/flavor of the various products is also based on the TYPE of wood they are aged in, not just duration--the Nega is aged in oak, and the dark product is aged in a dark wood called Pau-Brasil (the light is aged in a different light wood, do not recall the name....)

The other bottle contained a slightly darker cachaca of decent quality (aged 4 years in oak, per the bottle). However, I prob won't open it, as it is a registered 'collectors item' celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Internacional soccer club ('Inter') from Porto Alegre (it is labeled as '1909 Premium Cachaca")

Thanks

Thanks for the information. I'm sorry that I don't have enough information about these spirits to add them to the database. There are literally thousands of cacha ças made in Brazil for which I have not reliable information.

Default Fazenda Soledade cachaca

A few years ago i attended a tasting for Oronoco Rum. I met the owner of the distillory Vicente Bastos, a super guy who's family has been the Cachaca biz for a few generations. The farm is located in Nova Friburgo. In addition to Oronoco and the Nega Fulo that you metioned, they also make the Moleca which is double distilled. they have two very large brass pots...it was a great trip to see how it is made. Lately the newest line is Fazenda Soledade 'pura' and 'jequitba' Vicente has been using different kinds of native wood to age the Cachaca. When I was in Rio last year I tasted both...really great. the jequitba wood really gives the Cachaca a great taste and due to the double distill really smooth..hope this answered some of your questions
