Located on a farm in Brazil’s best-known cachaça region, GRM’s handcrafted spirits are coveted by aficionados throughout the world.
GRM employs methods that have remained unchanged over three centuries. They begin with hand-harvested sugar cane grown without agricultural toxins on GRM’s farm. Small batches of sugarcane are fermented, distilled, and aged separately to enhance the distinct properties of each harvest. The cane is cut and milled in less than 20 hours, guaranteeing the freshest possible extract. After the juice has been filtered in decanters, the sugar level is measured and balanced with iron-free mineral water. The pure, sweet water and a unique strain of yeast used in the fermentation are key to the product’s unparalleled flavor. The alcohol is then distilled in a copper pot still (alambic) and GRM’s master craftsmen extract only the heart, the purest part of the distillate. This choice spirit is aged for 2 years in three types of Oak, Umburana and Jequitiba-Rosa trees. Finally, selected barrels are blended, filtered and bottled for clarity, stability, and long life.
GRM produces world-class cachaças on its farm, Fazenda dos Verdes, outside the town of Araguari in the state of Minas Gerais. The region is famed for Brazil’s finest cachaça, as well as for its superb gastronomy. Amid rolling hills and expansive forests, local farmers produce natural cheeses, sweets, and succulent meats alongside the rich land that gives GRM Cachaça its distinctive flavor.
