PRODUCER: Ypioca Group is seven companies which together produce the Brazilian ‘national' drink of cachaça, as well as running connected farming enterprises, and mineral water production. Founded back in 1846, Ypioca now has five production plants, and its own sugar cane plantations which feed its spirits business. It was purchased by Britain-based Diageo in 2012. The Group has a Cachaça Museum you can visit, which boasts the world's largest wooden barrel.
PRODUCTION DETAILS: It would be easy to confuse cachaça with rum, and indeed it shares some characteristics with both rum and tequila. But cachaça has a singular character all its own, a truly Brazilian character, and this is especially true of Cachaça Ypioca Crystal 1L. Pure juice is squeezed from cane from the producers' own fields, distilled, then aged for a full year in Brazilian Freijó wood casks. The different tones in Cachaça Ypioca Crystal 1L make it a perfect ingredient in a clean yet complex and interesting Caipirinha.
