Cachaca Peruacu Rum Review by the fat rum pirateCachaca Peruacu. The producers behind Cachaca Peruacu have been active since 1995 producing cachaça. However, the Cachaca Peruacu brand has only been in existence since 2012.

The name Peruacu is derived from the indigenous Tupi Guarani language and means “Big Cave”. The Cavernos do Peruacu National park, which is located in the North of Minas Gerais is home to more than 140 ancient caves. Cachaca Peruacu is produced in Januaria, Minas Gerais.

Casa BuccCasa Bucco Cachaca Envelhecida 6 Anos review by the fat rum pirateCasa Bucco Cachaca Envelhecida 6 Anos. Casa Bucco has been producing Cachaca in Brasil since 1925. The family has even more history in spirits production in their native Italy producing Grappa. Once the family emigrated to Brasil they began producing cachaça.

Due to the terroir it is noted that the sugar cane of Casa Bucco has a very high sugar content. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating
