Avua Cachaca Tapinhoa is aged in tapinhoa wood, an extremely rare hardwood found in parts of South America. The spirit is aged in a barrel used decades ago by our distiller’s father. After a lengthy recommissioning process, and up to 2 years of aging, we are proud to offer our second unique Brazilian wood offering. This wood imparts flavors of toasted coconut, fresh honeycomb, and caramel. The soft, sweet notes imparted by the wood create the perfect sipping spirit. Try it on the rocks, neat, or in a cocktail showcasing the incredible flavor of our newest offering. A note on batching As with fine wine, our product is produced in an annual growing season and will exhibit differences from batch to batch due to differences in water retention, cane composition and harvest factors. Each of our batches is clearly numbered on batch and bottle numbers - and once they are gone they are gone forever. We stand behind every bottle that we put into the market as being of the highest quality cachaca to be found throughout the world.
