Novo Fogo Silver Cachaça...$27.99
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 Chameleon Cachaca...$29.99
Our “Chameleon” expression marries the savory identity of our Silver Cachaça with the vanilla notes of our oak-kissed Barrel-Aged edition. It’s aged for one year in re-purposed American oak barrels, just long enough to reach mixability peaks without losing its rainforest and sugarcane funk. A hazelnut nose is continued with sweet and spicy herbs in the palate and finished with lively citrus. From tiki drinks to stirred aperitifs, this versatile cachaça is the bartender’s friend.
Novo Fogo Barrel-Aged Cachaça...$34.99
We age our organic cachaça distillate in 53-gallon American oak bourbon barrels that have been taken apart, sanded, and re-toasted. The 2-3 year process takes place in the heat and humidity of our home in the Atlantic Rainforest. The result? Banana bread, with notes of chocolate, cinnamon bark, and coffee. Nuances of pepper remain, but the cachaça’s time spent in wood changes its spiciness from fresh red pepper to toasty black pepper.
