The story of Ypióca began in 1843, when Dario Telles de Menezes, who would go on to found the Ypióca Group, landed in Fortaleza, Brazil. He had traveled from Portugal, and ended up settling in Maranguape, near Fortaleza. His original intention was to farm sugarcane, but the farming business proved challenging and Menezes turned his focus to distillation. Three years later, the first Ypióca Cachaça was distilled and Ypióca was founded, making it the oldest Brazilian brand still in operation. The name Ypióca comes from the indigenous Tupi-Guarani language, and translates to “red earth,” alluding to the fertile soil conducive to farming cane sugar.

This is a premium Brazilian spirit that embodies the rich history and culture of traditional cachaca production. This exceptional cachaca is made from hand-selected sugarcane grown in the fertile soils of Brazil and distilled in copper pot stills.

It is then aged for two years in oak barrels, which adds a complex layer of flavors and aromas to the spirit. The oak imparts a delicate smokiness, vanilla notes, and a subtle sweetness that balances the bright, grassy character of the sugarcane.

Ypioca Cachaca Reserva Carvalho is a premium spirit that represents the best of Brazilian cachaca production. Its exceptional quality and unique flavor profile make it a must-try for any spirits connoisseur.

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.
