We are committed to maintaining the identity of our clean, healthy sugarcane when we distill it into cachaça. We process it minimally, according to traditional methods and using human hands, in tiny batches (130 liters each), and we use no chemicals to grow our cane (hence the USDA organic certification). In the end, you should be able to taste the rainforest in our cachaças.

To mature the Colibri expression (“hummingbird” in Portuguese), we moved the cachaça back and forth over the years between repurposed oak barrels and amburana (Brazilian teak) barrels. The predominant spices of vanilla and toffee (from the oak) and cinnamon and chestnuts (from the teak) come together in a balanced expression that also includes tropical fruit such as banana and passionfruit but finishes playfully with notes of snickerdoodle.

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.


In addition to its functional benefits for bars and bartenders, Novo Fogo Bar Strength Cachaça was created to be foremost an exceptional distilled spirit with a minimal environmental impact, no matter how far it travels from Brazil to its final destination in a cocktail.

As the producer of the cachaça in the bottle, Novo Fogo is a carbon-negative company. Through our business practices of waste minimization, organic production, the ownership and management of forested land, a growing reforestation project for threatened tree species and the purchase of carbon offsets, Novo Fogo absorbs more CO2 than it emits. However other companies in a global supply chain are also necessary to bring this new product to the market, and designing Bar Strength Silver Cachaça offered us an opportunity to understand and take responsibility for the indirect carbon footprint of these upstream and downstream companies as well.

In the world of carbon emissions, these terms refer to the types of carbon emissions along a company’s supply chain:

Scope 1 emissions are the direct emissions from resources we own and control, like the tractor on our farm and the furnace that burns the sugarcane pulp at our distillery.

Scope 2 emissions are the indirect emissions generated by the utility provider that sells us electricity. In our part of Brazil, energy is generated at a hydroelectric power plant.

Scope 3 emissions are all the indirect emissions in the supply chain that are linked to our company operations. Upstream, they include emissions associated with the packaging, glass bottles, and other components we buy from other companies. Downstream, they include emissions associated with storing and transporting our products to retailers and restaurants.
