Sagatiba is a superior cachaça handcrafted from fresh sugar cane grown in the farmlands of Minas Gerais, Brazil. It is aged for two years in tropical wood casks to attain exquisite smoothness, exotic fruit aromas and unparalleled flavor.
Cachaça is the most important spirit category in Brazil. It is derived from sugarcane and is the key ingredient in the classic ‘caipirinha’, Brazil’s famed lime and sugar drink. Global sales of cachaça exceeded 85 million nine-litre cases on a worldwide basis in 2010. Brazil represents 99% of the global sales. The premium segment, which still represents a small portion of the total cachaça market, is gaining market share from low end categories. This growth is driven by the trading up of local consumers moving from standard spirits into premium brands.
Sagatiba Velha’s cutting edge multi-distillation process produces a very clean spirit with the delicate flavour and aroma of fresh cut sugarcane.
Sagatiba Velha’s unmatched versatility and mixability add Brasilian flair to any of your favourite cocktails, especially those calling for fresh and simple ingredients such as fruit juices and herbs.
