Avuá Copan Limited Edition Aged Cachaça is the first expression in a new limited-edition series presented by Avuá Cachaça, the leading artisanal, single-sourced cachaça brand. The Copan Limited Edition is the first of a resolutely limited wood series, made as an experiment with Craig Schoettler of MGM Resorts, and the venerable makers of Hardy Cognac. Each bottle is a finishing school for Brazilian wood aged cachaça rested in a Hardy Cognac barrel. The spirit filling each bottle is hand-crafted and aged over one year in tapinhoã wood casks, imparting toasted coconut and pine tree notes, then finished for six months in large barrels, adding the rich flavors of cognac. Only 600 bottles of this release will be available -- it will never be produced again.

Situated in the hills of Carmo near Rio de Janeiro, Avuá Cachaça begins in the single-estate sugarcane fields of a small, family-owned farm, produced by one of Brazil’s top female distillers and using a family recipe honed over three generations.

Avuá Copan Limited Edition Aged Cachaça is aged for up to two years in super rare tapinhoā barrels and then finished in a large Hardy cognac cask that retains the cognac soak for six months.  The unique combination of rare native wood and cognac finish produces a delightfully complex aroma and flavor profile unlike anything else in our range.  


Avuá as a company passionate about the culture, heritage and ecology of Brazil has a strong commitment to sustainability of its products and its supply chain.  Regarding the woods of cachaça, we work to ensure replanting and sourcing from sustainable stocks, as well as improving and optimizing our supply chain over time and contributing over time to a larger conversation about sustainability of cachaça.


Amburana, commonly used for aging cachaça, comes from the amburana cearensis tree. While it's listed as endangered, sustainable sourcing is supported by the Brazilian government. Avuá ensures sustainability by growing new amburana barrels on Fazenda da Quinta.


Jequitiba rosa, used for shorter cachaça aging, is vulnerable due to habitat loss. Avuá procures from sustainable sources, emphasizing limited releases and responsible purchasing to maintain ecological balance.


Bálsamo, utilized in cachaças from the Salinas region, isn't a current ecological concern despite being near threatened. It's known for its resinous sap and is traditionally used in fragrances and medicine.


Tapinhoã, from various tree types, faces endangerment, but Avuá employs barrels from trees harvested on the farm in the late 1960s. While sustainable sourcing is unclear, Avuá emphasizes continued use until alternatives are identified and encourages reforestation efforts.


Avuá and Fazenda da Quinta prioritize sustainability, promoting responsible forest use. They actively replant amburana and ipê while researching tapinhoã regrowth, aiming to ensure the longevity of these vital ecosystems and their resources.

What is Cachaça?

Cachaça is Brazil's national spirit, a distilled spirit made from fermented and distilled sugarcane juice. It has a history of almost 500 years, blending three trends in Brazilian culture: Indian, African, and Portuguese. Cachaça is often compared to rum because they share a sugar-based distillate, but cachaça is made from freshly-pressed sugarcane juice, while rum is not. Cachaça is sweeter and has a different taste than rum because it is made directly from sugarcane juice.
