Description

Our Cachaça, Leblon, is distilled at our own state-of-the-art distillery, Maison Leblon, in the fertile Minas Gerais region. Our approach to Cachaça is unique: Gilles Merlet, our master distiller, approaches the fermentation, distillation, and finishing of Cachaça like a fine wine. Using techniques from his native land of France, Gilles manages every detail of the creation – from the hand-selection of the cane and his proprietary fermentation approach, to the Alambique batch-distillation and light-casking, triple-filtering, and master-blending. Gilles rests the final distillate in XO Cognac casks from France, giving Leblon an extra-special touch. As a result, Leblon Cachaça has a delicate, fruity nose, combined with an ultra smooth finish. So, now that you understand what Cachaça is, how to say it, and how to use it, we invite you to explore this wonderful new world.

Leblon traps a light "rummy" bouquet with fruity and tequila-like herbal notes. Leblon has a smooth entry, with pleasing layers of fruity cane and spices; all in a clean silky texture. With a creamy full body, Leblon exhibits a spice box with toasty vanillas that create a crème brulé and for some, hints of butterscotch. The spirit warms in the mouth and leaves a gentle sweetness in the middle of the tongue that flowers as it lasts, much like a refined tequila. For such a lively spirit, the warm, velvety finish is a lasting surprise. Leblon mixes extremely well with almost any fruit and couples nicely with other ingredients from herbs to liqueurs. It can also be sipped chilled as it is the most pure of the white cachaças.

Inside the tall, distinctive lime-green bottle, look for a faintly yellow-tinged liquid with pungent, ripe tropical fruit aromas. Though it’s a little intense straight up, with brown sugar sweetness fading into a long fruity finish, it stands up well in a long drink with soda, like a mojito. - K.N.
