Avua Amburana Cachaca is made at a family-owned distillery established in 1923 in a small town in a valley four hours north of Rio de Janeiro. It is distilled from first pressed fermented sugar cane juice and then aged for up to 2 years in vats made from a rare Brazilian hardwood known as Amburana.
In 2009, two New York entrepreneurs, Nate Whitehouse and Pete Nevenglosky discovered just how good Brazil’s native spirit could be and set about finding a distiller to supply them high-quality cachaça and creating a brand name and packaging to convey that quality, the result being Avuá Cachaça.
Named for trees that are indigenous to South America, Avuá Cachaça Amburana begins in the single-estate sugarcane fields of Fazenda da Quinta, a family-owned farm located about four hours north of Rio de Janeiro.
The hand-cut sugarcane is ground with a waterwheel to extract the juice, which is fermented for less than 24 hours using airborne wild yeasts and distilled in an alembic copper pot still. The cachaça rests for up to two years in casks made from Amburana wood.
