Santo Grau Itirapua Cachaca, 70 cl
Regular price £33.89
Produced in Itirapua, São Paulo, this Cachaça is handcrafted in an "engenho" in operation for over 150 years. Sugarcane is hand- harvested followed by natural fermentation with wild yeasts. After fermentation in the copper still, it is lightly aged in oak and Jequitiba barrels, the latter softens acidy producing a more rounded spirit. Read more.

Santo Grau is a pioneer brand of craft Cachaca, preserving the origins and individuality of the most traditional, small and historic mills, called engenhos - traditional, artisanal production facilities in Brazil.
Production is still run by the same families that owned the farms for generations, using sugar cane from each specific region and natural fermentation processes, using antique alembics and centuries-old traditions.
Santo Grau represents 3 traditional regions; Coronel Xavier Chaves in Minas Gerais, Itirapua and Paraty near Rio de Janeiro.
Notes of wood and a smooth, velvety palate, due to the slight barrel ageing.
What our customers are saying
Olá! The Caipirinha cocktail is the true taste of Brazil, as much of a staple in their culture as carnivals and football. One part of this is it is made with Brazil’s national spirit, Cachaça. It’s similar to rum, but it has a flavour all its own. Most rums are distilled from molasses, while cachaça is distilled from the fermented juice of sugar cane. This important difference creates a distinct spirit that is characterised by its funky flavour, which sets the Caipirinha apart from other sweet-and-sour cocktails like the Daiquiri. The Caipirinha is easy to make and can be constructed right in the glass, making it a great choice for constructing at home at a summery garden party. Lime juice and simple syrup won’t get the job done: The drink specifically calls for lime wedges and golden caster sugar, but these aren’t hard to come by. The classic Caipirinha is not a cocktail that requires improvement, it is refreshing and flavourful, with a unique ability to bring you straight to the tropics, no matter where you’re drinking.
