Novo Fogo Organic Cachaça Brasil 750ml

SKU #1060123 90 points Wine Enthusiast

 The heavily fruity aroma is deceptive. Instead, this unaged, certified organic cachaša is light, tingly and spicy, with cinnamon, ginger and clove notes. Try adding this spirit to a fruity cocktail.  (6/ 2011)

K&L Notes

Novo Fogo is the first cachaša with a distinct sense of place. Coming from the Southern jungle town of Morretes, Novo Fogo represents 300 years of cachaša experience from an organic and sustainable distillery. Everything is used and reused never wasted. The quality of the estate grown cane is unparalleled and distillation is of free run, first press cane juice only. Needless to say this is not your industrially produced cachaša (i.e. the stuff used to power most of Brazils vehicles), although they do use the heads and tails to run their cars and power the distillery. The cane juice is distilled in small alembic pot stills, instead of the industrial column stills like 95% of the world's cachaca. Using only gravity to move the spirit, it is then rested in steel for at least a year to allow it to mature and mellow. Each bottle is hand produced from recycled glass and even the decorative neck cover is created by hand from recycled cane fiber. One of the finest cane based spirits I've tasted. Costs more than the industrial stuff, but it's in a whole different league. The depth and complexity make Novo Fogo a mixologists dream. Enjoy! (David Girard, K&L Spirits buyer)

Novo Fogo is my favorite Cachaca for sure. It has just enough of the funk (hogo) character like mashed bananas and hay balanced out with some really lovely tropical fruit components with a smooth and creamy finish. Try it in your espresso for a twist on the classic Caffè Corretto.
