The Process

Armazem Vieira follows the finest traditional methods and uses only choice sugarcane. The sugar cane juice is boiled and then sterilized in copper trays before regional wild yeast is added for fermentation. The resulting “wine” is distilled in a traditional copper pot still (alambique). Armazem Vieira is the product of the heart, the purest element of the distillate. The Cachaça is then aged for up to 20 years in barrels made from local Aririba wood, which imparts a unique color, bouquet, and taste. After this natural aging process is completed, the master distiller blends different aged barrels to create the optimal flavor profile for each product (via the Solera system). After blending, the Cachaça is filtered to guarantee clarity and purity, and bottled on site in transparent bottles that reveal the finished product’s depth and brilliance. The result is a rich, complex Cachaça of the highest quality.

Armazem Vieira Bar & Distillery

Armazem Viera’s name comes from the trading post, or “armazem,” built in 1840 by Sergio Vieira in Florianopolis, the state capital of Santa Catarina in Southern Brazil. Today, this historic building, which blends Masonic and Azorean architectural styles, contains the cellaring facilities for Armazem Vieira’s superior Cachaças as well as a unique Art Nouveaux bar. Situated on one of the first trails established on the island, the building was recognized as a historic landmark in 1984. A popular destination for tourists and locals, Armazem Vieira Bar offers fine regional cuisine, aged Cachaças, unique cocktails, and many cultural events.
