Leblon is made from fresh cane juice obtained within three hours of harvesting by pressing only the middle and best part of the sugar cane. This fresh sweet juice is fermented and then distilled using an alembic copper still. The cachaça is then aged in ex-cognac casks for one month.
Leblon was launched in September 2005 by a former executive at LVMH, Steve Luttman, and ten partners. They raised $2 million to launch their spirit which takes its name from Leblon Beach in Rio de Janeiro.
