Last week, the Pour pointed out that aged varieties of cachaa the Brazilian sugarcane liquor you know and love from the caipirinha are hitting the market. But how much distribution can small producers get? Weve just discovered that a bullish brand we love for its relative smoothness, Sagatiba, will introduce a cachaa called Velha here in the fall. It will only be aged two years in oak barrels, instead of a dozen, but itll beat this cachaa in a can (slogan: A good idea) that a friend recently brought back from Brazil. Wait hard liquor in a can? We take that back.
