Ypioca Brasilizar Cachaca Prata Classica 1L
Classica is distilled in a column still from fresh pressed sugarcane juice. The sugarcane comes from Ypióca-owned sugar fields and is aged for one year in Ypioca Brasilizar Cachaca wood vats. The story of Ypióca began in 1843, when Dario Telles de Menezes, who would go on to found the Ypióca Group, landed in Fortaleza, Brazil. He had traveled from Portugal, and ended up settling in Maranguape, near Fortaleza. His original intention was to farm sugarcane, but the farming business proved challenging and Menezes turned his focus to distillation. Three years later, the first Ypioca Brasilizar Cachaca was distilled and Ypióca was founded, making it the oldest Brazilian brand still in operation. The name Ypióca comes from the indigenous Tupi-Guarani language, and translates to “red earth,” alluding to the fertile soil conducive to farming cane sugar.
