The cachaca I am reviewing today is one the three signature bottlings from each of those distilleries.

It is also closely related to the previous Santo Grau cachaca I reviewed as it comes from the same small distillery in Sao Paulo state Itirapua. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Novo Fogo Silver Cachaca

Novo Fogo Silver Cachaca rum review by the fat rum pirateNovo Fogo Silver Cachaca. As I continue my journey into the world of cachaca I am encountering a few cachaca brands which are more geared for the export market, rather than the huge domestic market in Brasil.

One such brand is Novo Fogo. I have previously reviewed a couple of their expressions a Barrel Aged cachaca and  their Tanager blend. Both were pretty good.
