Sagatiba is the brain child of Brazilian entrepreneur Marcos de Moraes, who sought to launch a cachaça brand that would become an international household name. Sagatiba translates as ‘infinite possibilities’, or more literally 'eternal search'. Pura is distilled from cane juice and unaged.
Pronounced 'vel-ya', Sagatiba Velha is made from sugar cane harvested from fields surrounding the distillery in Minas Gerais, Brazil. The fermented sugar cane juice is distilled in traditional copper pot stills and the distillate aged for 2-3 years in ex-Jim Beam bourbon barrels.
