Pitu Cachaca (700ml)

$49.99 Bottle
  • ABV 40%

Cachaça is a sugar cane distillate, which is similar to white rum. However, it is not made of molasses but from the juice of unrefined sugar cane of which only the first pressings are used. A maturing process of several weeks in wooden vats allows the flavour to unfold completely, making the taste of Cachaça Pitú lighter and smoother than that of many types of rum. It is subsequently an ideal base for cocktails. Cachaça is considered a national drink amongst Brazilians who consume an astonishing two billion litres a year. It is the basis of the Caipirinha (pronounced Kaay-peer-REEN-ya), which became one of the worlds most popular cocktails towards the end of the millennium leading to a world Cachaça shortage. The spirit has been in huge demand in Australia for some time with many bars using White Rum as an inferior substitute.

Tasting Note: Clear. Ripe guava and grape aromas. A smooth, round entry leads to a slightly glycerous, moderately full-bodied palate with excellent, refined tropical fruit flavors mixed with white pepper and beautifully balanced sweetness. Very smooth and drinkable. 40%alc.vol.
RATED: 89 points (Highly Recommended)

Classic Cocktail: The Caipirinha

Like any classic, the Caipirinha (roughly translated as 'little peasant girl') has a traditional method of mixing which requires a certain attention to detail.

Cut a lime into eight pieces, place in a glass, add 1-2 tea spoons of granulated cane sugar to taste. The proportion of sugar can vary but its sweetness should balance the acidity of the limes.
A wooden muddler can be used to grind the sugar and lime in order to release the oils in the skin as well as the juice in the flesh of the limes.
Fill the glass with crushed ice. Add 30-60ml of Pitu Cane Spirit, stir and it’s ready!

In recent years, some bartenders have developed the humble Caipirinha by adding fresh fruit such as blackberries during the muddling (crushing) stage to create new flavours, thus creating for example a 'Black berry Caipirinha.' Cachaça Pitú also lends a certain Brazilian exoticism to other drinks such as cola and orange juice.
