Description: Aguaviva is a family (Destilaria Rocha family) run distillery producing Cachaca since 1902. Located in Rio de Janeiro with 100% sustainable operation. Produce under biodynamic production wihtout additives. Aguaviva manually grinds the entire sugarcane to make a refined high-quality Cachaca.
The influence of African migration in Brazil is undeniable. The Orishas brought with them their beliefs that evolved to the local candomblé. Aguaviva chose the egúngún as a symbol of their respect for nature and the land. That is why our cachaça is produced under the biodynamic production process, where we exclude the use of artificial chemicals on soil and plants.
Cachaca (Rhum) Definition: Rum production is based on traditional styles that vary between locations and distillers. Most rum is made from molasses distillation (Sugar cane by-product). Within the Caribbean, much of this molasses is from Brazil. A notable exception is the French-speaking islands (French West Indies style), where sugarcane juice is the preferred ingredient that goes directly to distillation.
