- Leblon is one of the top producers of cachaça, Brazil's national spirit distilled from sugarcane juice.
Leblon's Cachaça is made via the traditional alembic batch method in copper potstills — the same high-quality method as the production of the eau-de-vie for Cognac or Scotch whiskies. The spirit is then rested for up to six months in used Cognac casks.
Leblon Cachaça has a lively, fruity nose with complex layers of fresh cut sugar cane, spices, and fruits. The spirit warms in the mouth and leaves a gentle sweetness in the middle of the tongue that flowers as it lasts. With an ultra-smooth finish and light to medium body, Leblon mixes well with almost any fruit and couples nicely with a variety of ingredients, including herbs, spices, and liqueurs. It can be sipped chilled or enjoyed in a Caipirinha, Mojito, or other rum cocktails. (from the distiller)
