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.
