Flor do Brasil Aguardente de Cana Cachaca Rum Review by the fat rum pirateFlor do Brasil Aguardente de Cana. These Cachaca’s have been produced in Castelo, Espirito Santo since 1949. Information on this brand has been hard to come by. It appears that this cachaça the Special Reserve is their premium offering. Their other Cachaca’s are presented with differing bottles and logo’s.
