What is FORRÓ? Forró is a driving and energetic, yet romantic style of music from the Northeast of Brazil. It is music that will make you want to dance. A cousin to other accordion styles such as Merengue and Zydeco, Forró comes from the African word “forrobodó” meaning a big party where everyone is dancing and playing music. Mispronounced by the English railroad workers in Brazil Forró became FOR ALL· Forró is music for everyone!

Out – “Trendspotting”

Daniel Lee

GRM-Beleza Pura® finally brought us a line of premium cachaça (a Brazilian spirit made from sugarcane) worth doling out the dollars for. GRM’s smooth, sweet, and high-flavor taste rivals some of Mexico’s best anejo tequilas, and likewise should only be drunk-gasp!-strait.

The Robb Report – “Spirits: Holiday Host Guide”

Brett Anderson, Jessica Taylor, & Bruce Wallin

Warm the heart and stir the soul with these high-spirited selections.
Tastes change, but quality does not-a somewhat priggish old maxim that, nevertheless, describes perfectly this selection of spirits, which are anything but prim. These slightly subversive bottles prove that the definitions of liquor categories are fluid indeed.

GRM Small Batch Artesian Cachaça
The ultimate Caipirinha cachaça, this handcrafted spirit already has a hint of the lime to come on its powerful nose; its flavor combines creamy caramel, cinnamon, and sweet corn with a hint of salt and a bit of pepper ($60)

This Just In – “Raves about Super Premium Cachaça”

“The next spirit category poised to ignite is cachaça. Watch for the unaged super premium BELEZA PURA…. ”

“The caipirinha…has supplanted the mojito. The sad news is…you’ve been pretty much drinking swill… cachaça has only been imported in its cheapest of forms. That’s all changing, thanks to Olie Berlic, a NY based sommelier who wants to raise the cachaça bar…”

“How good is good cachaça? … a sommelier … made it his mission to find out… Three years and 800 cachaças later, returned home to launch his Excalibur line of Cachaças…”
Forbes FYEye

“… Excalibur, is bringing Beleza Pura® as well as single barrel and aged varieties GRM, Rochinha and Armazem Vieira.”

“We particularly liked the lovely BELEZA PURA… GRM…highly recommended… Armazem Vieira and Rochinha… exotic and delightful.”

“BELEZA PURA : Perfect purity”
The Spirit Journal

“The caipirinha’s raw materials are getting an upgrade…BELEZA PURA (’pure beauty’ from São Paulo)…is so pure it banishes those caipirinha headaches to spring breaks past.”
Hamptons Cottages and Gardens

“…There is a HUGE difference in Cachaça. BELEZA PURA SUPER PREMIUM CACHAÇA not only packs the complex taste into a perfect package, but it is the smoothest Cachaça we have ever tasted…”
