NOVO FOGO Silver Cachaca 750ml, 40% Alcohol
The purest representation of organic sugarcane from Southern Brazil, this silver cachaça proves that terroir matters. The aroma of bananas immediately present, followed by pleasantly floral rainforest notes that shine through the spirit. Sea salt balances the cachaca’s tropicality, adding a savory quality and settling the overall impression to a mouth-watering sweet red pepper. This cachaça is rested in chemically-inert stainless steel tanks for one year to smoothen it without changing its flavor.
Novo Fogo cultivates sugarcane organically and produces Novo Fogo Cachaças using sustainable methods. A thoughtful, gentle approach is better for the earth and it’s better for the cachaça in your glass.
Sustainability Certification and Criteria:
- Novo Fogo Cachaça is 100% USDA-certified organic and sustainably produced.
- The distillery is a zero-waste facility. All the byproducts from making cachaça are recycled and reused in some way.
- Gravity moves liquid from room to room in the distillery instead of motorized pumps that would disturb our jungle neighbors.
- The Novo Fogo team plants trees! Novo Fogo supports a reforestation project in the jungle around our town of Morretes, where they plant native and endangered trees.
Cachaça is Brazil’s national distilled spirit made, from freshly-pressed sugarcane juice. Cachaça is 500 years old; it is an older spirit and larger category than rum. Since it’s distilled from a fresh plant, terroir matters.
The terroir of the coastal Atlantic Rainforest makes Novo Fogo cachaça unique. The home is a little town called Morretes (mo-HEH-tes), in the middle of the largest patch of protected jungle in southern Brazil. The air is clean and fragrant with tropical fruits, flowers, and the salty sea breeze. The healthy, estate-grown sugarcane reflects this pure rainforest environment, which is why Novo Fogo processes the cane minimally to preserve its flavor. When you open a bottle of Novo Fogo, you can smell and taste the natural wonders of southern Brazil.
