Cachaca Prosa Mineira Carvalho

Cachaca Prosa Mineira Carvalho Rum review by the fat rum pirate Cachaca Prosa Mineira Carvalho. Hailing from the city of Santa Rita de Caldas in the southern region of Minas Gerais comes Cachaca Prosa Mineira. Arguably Minas Gerais is the most recognised and respected state in Brasil, when it comes to Artisanal Cachaca production.

It is a relatively new brand and only came to the market in 2010.It is an Artisanal Cachaca brand so it is distilled on Copper Pot Stills. The sugar cane used is harvested next to the distillery and is cut by hand. The sugar cane juice is then extracted within a 24 hour period following the harvest.

For our first Cachaca of the Year, I willl not name a shortlist, I will just announce which cachaca I enjoyed the most this year.  To be honest (and shame on you all) the reviews of cachaca I do, just don’t generate the same kind of interest that my usual rum reviews do.

Now technically the juice in this bottle is Cachaca. However due to a lack of understanding regarding Cachaca’s independent bottlers and even brands such as Ben Bom label their products “Brazilian Rum”. I guess this helps appeal and not alienate certain consumers who do not understand the spirit. Fair enough I say. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Velho Alambique Ouro Rum Cachaca review by the fat rum pirateVelho Alambique Ouro is a cachaça from the town of Santa Tereza, Serra Gaucha in Rio Grande do Sul state, in Southern Brasil. Velho Alambique refers to “Old Alembic” or “Old Distillery” in English.

Finding information particularly background on this brand has proven a little tricky. They do have a website.
