Unique blend

The perfect balance of de la Vega Cachaça is the result of the rigorously blending of three woods: oak, grapia and amburana. Because of its porosity, the French oak allows the beverage to air out and facilitates the absorption of the scent of this fine component. On the other hand, the lightness and softness are the result of the action of grapia and amburana, which also gives a slightly sweet flavour.

excepcional care

After its elaboration, Cachaça de la Vega is stored for approximately 2 years in single barrels,  which can be made of oak, grapia or amburana. This process affords the customer an extraordinarily rare sensorial experience.

Succesful partnership

The partnership between Alembic de la Vega and Master Blender Manoel Agostinho provides softness and elegance to the beverage.  Manoel Agostinho has not only elaborated the wine menu in many bars, restaurants and hotels, but he is also a lecturer. In addition to this, he is the author of a book entitled “A Trip to The World Of Cachaça” and one of the most important specialists in the beverage.
