ABELHA GOLD CACHAÇA is aged for 3 years in small 250L garapeira wooden barrels, a type of Brazilian Ash. In Brazil, oak (carvalho) doesn’t have the same monopoly on ageing spirits as it does in most of the world. You can find Cachaça aged in a huge variety of woods which each give a totally different character to Cachaça. The ash wood used in making Abelha Gold Cachaca imparts a beautiful mellow tone to the cachaça. The result is the naturally full-flavoured, well-balanced Cachaça to enjoy neat or mixed in cocktails.
