Default Pitú Cachaca

I just received my bottle of Pitú Cachaca yesterday afternoon and immediately set out to taste it.

Wow! Cachaca is a very different beast from white rum (at least this one is). The flavour is warm and earthy featuring flavours like grilled zucchini and butternut squash alongside a light zesty citrus with hints of lowland agave and white pepper.

I found it very appealing in cocktails as those earthy flavours (I seem to taste sauteed mushrooms as well) take to lime the way my Canadian Whisky takes to ginger ale.

The advertising on the website and bottle claim this is the most popular Cachaca in the world. Would anyone know if that statement could be considered truthful?

I cannot speak with authority for the world, but certainly Pitú has been the most common cachaca available in NYC since I first noticed it in the 1980s.
If someone were to ask me which cachaca was the most known, Pitú would be my guess.

For what that's worth.

I have seen and tasted plenty of other cachacas, but I had to seek them out. Pitú is all over the place here. And it makes a good caipirinha to my taste.

Well I managed to build a few cocktails and cobble together a review for Pitú Cachaca (which according to the label on the back of my bottle is pronounced Petee-too Kah-sha-sah).

You may read my full review of this uniquely Brazilian Spirit here:

Chip, have you ever tried the cachacas from Ypioca? Personally I think these are "nice" for the standard caipirinha.

Unfortunately, there are only 7 Cachacas listed in Alberta at this point. While I have heard good things about Ypioca, I have not had an occasion to try it.
