'Sagatiba Brazilian Cachaca Rum' Fine Art Print from original painting by Kelly Telfer

Cachaca (pron. "KA SHA SA") is made from sugarcane juice. It's the most popular alcoholic beverage in Brazil. It is similar to rum, however made from sugarcane juice as opposed to molasses. It does come in both dark and clear varieties, and is aged in one of various wooden barrels.

As with cognac, cachaça is considered a region-specific product and cannot be produced outside of Brazil.  Brazil produces a staggering amount of sugar cane each year. In 2006, Brazil produced over thirty million tons of sugar cane, almost more than India and China combined. With all this readily available sugar cane, Brazil has the luxury of using the fresh sugar cane juice which is fermented and distilled into cachaça.

Cachaça is often mistakenly labeled as “rum” (and a quirky US law actually requires cachaça to be labeled “Brazilian Rum”).  However, cachaça is its own unique spirit category with very strict parameters on how it can be distilled and sold.  While most rum is produced from molasses, which is the byproduct of extracting sugar from sugarcane, cachaça can only be made from the fresh sugar can juice itself.
