Novo Fogo Barrel-Aged Gold Cachaca
Novo Fogo ages their organic cachaa distillate in 53-gallon American oak bourbon barrels that have been taken apart, sanded, and re-toasted. The 2-3 year process takes place in the heat and humidity of their home in the Atlantic Rainforest. The result? Banana bread, with notes of chocolate, cinnamon bark, and coffee. Nuances of pepper remain, but the cachaa’s time spent in wood changes its spiciness from fresh red pepper to toasty black pepper.
