The London Caipirinha Festival 2017 (#londoncaipfest) is the largest competition of Brazilian drinks and cocktails in London, created to stimulate British consumers to learn about Brazilian culture and to promote cachaça in the United Kingdom. With several London-based bars and restaurants competing in various categories, including the title of “London’s Best Caipirinha 2017”, consumers visiting the participating bars and restaurants, after sampling their caipirinhas are required to vote online on the festival website.
As no big event or good idea comes becomes reality on its own, VBRATA have some important sponsors in this year’s edition. Meet the London Caipirinha 2017 #LondonCaipFest Sponsors:
ABELHA CACHAÇA SILVER is a premium hand-crafted white Cachaça with a clean and natural flavour which is ‘rested’ (descansada). Resting the cachaça for a few months in open steel tanks allows some of the less desirable compounds to evaporate or oxidise into phenols, which give the Cachaça its characteristic bouquet. The result is a full-flavoured artisanal Cachaça, with an intense fruit/vegetal nose, fresh sugar cane and stone fruits taste, and a smooth dry finish: perfect for Caipirinhas.

This bistro serves up Brazilian food in a relaxed, informal setting with occasional live music. Wooden seating is surrounded by bright yellow walls, which feature large blue-skied murals and decorative paintings. Dishes seem to be meat-heavy and portions look generous. Expect picanha burgers, BBQ pulled pork, peri-peri chicken, beef chilli with rice, sirloin steaks, calabresa sausages, cassava chips and a selection of pizzas can be split into two for those undecided about toppings.
There’s certainly an enduring appeal to this Mexican cantina on Langley Street – it’s been serving Covent Garden visitors since 1982 and shows little sign of letting up. Expect a fun and frenetic atmosphere, and a bit of a party vibe. Although a Mexican restaurants, it claims to serve one of the best Brazilian caipirinhas in London!

Salsa Bar Soho
Located on Charing Cross Road in the centre of London’s West End, the Salsa bar and restaurant is the South American party heart of the capital. A great deal of effort has gone in to creating a truly Latin atmosphere here at Bar Salsa, starting with the décor which comes straight from a Rio guide book, bright colours blended with rough-hewn wood for a rustic beach-bar look.
