Our Still Strength Cachaça reflects the best of Avuá at 90 proof–the taste and strength intended by nature and alchemy. Like Prata, it is rested in stainless steel vats before being hand bottled. Explore this BOLD and CRISP spirit with vegetal and banana notes perfect for cocktails that call for a higher proof base distillate such as tiki and stirred drinks.


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.
