Men’s Journal – “The Brazilian Invasion”

Michael Slenske

Men’s Journal Article on Cachaca From the Men’s Journal article:
“Despite being the world’s third-most consumed spirit, behind vodak and soju, Brazilian cachaça (ka-CHA-sa) — the sugarcane-based liquor in caipirinhas — is best known as headache-inducing firewater. But now, inspired by tequila’s evolution to the top shelf, distillers are creating small-batch and aged cachaças.

They taste like a hybrid of rum and scotch and can be sipped neat, on the rocks with a twist of lime, or in smoother tasting cocktails. To find the best of this recent crop, we held a blind taste test, and included some classic cachaças. Tasters were Paul Tanguay, beverage director at the Brazilian-Japanese restaurant chain SushiSamba, and Dushan Zaric and Jason Kosmas, owners of the popular New York City bar Employees Only.”

Beverage Journal Raves About Cachaça

Alia Akkam

Beverage Journal CachacaThe February 2007 edition of the industry-leading magazine Beverage Journal, introduces Beleza Pura’s cachaça and ready-to-drink caipirinha to the U.S. beverage market.

From the article:
Olie Berlic, founder/CEO, Excalibur Enterprise Inc., a U.S. importer with a full portfolio of spirits from Brazil, developed Beleza Pura® with a progressive distillery in Brazil. Concerning the “incredible” growth rate the cachaça category has been experiencing, Berlic says, “There are a lot of misconceptions happening right now, but it’s real and is being driven by small companies and entrepreneurs at this point.” He adds, “There are 40 brands in the U.S. market today with more en route.”

The article continues…

Excalibur Enterprise also imports a ready-to-drink, the Beleza Pura® Caipirinha, that Berlic believes “will drive the cachaça category because consumers
can taste what a properly made, high-quality caipirinha should taste like.”
