Avuá Amburana Cachaça is made at a family owned distillery established in 1923 in a small town in a valley four hours north of Rio de Janeiro. It is distilled from first pressed fermented sugar cane juice and then aged for up to 2 years in vats made from a rare Brazilian hardwood known as Amburana.

In 2009, two New York entrepreneurs, Nate Whitehouse and Pete Nevenglosky, discovered just how good Brazil’s native spirit could be and set about finding a distiller to supply them high quality cachaça and creating a brand name and packaging to convey that quality, the result being Avuá Cachaça.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 17/07/2013


Clear, very pale yellow


Overripe banana and banana chips with creamy vanilla, passion fruit and faint nutmeg.


Slightly honeyed but with drying spice – cinnamon, nutmeg and cracked black pepper. Sweet overripe banana and dried apricot fruitiness with faint basil notes. The oak influence is profound and yet strangely subtle.


Dry spicy finish with lingering dry oak and tropical fruit.
