Production Notes

‘Maria Bonita’ organic sugarcane is processed within 24 hours of being cut, followed by open air fermentation, then distilled in traditional 800 liter copper stills. Only the purest part (the heart - 10%) of the distillate is retained for use in the end product, to ensure the very best quality and taste. Following distillation, this cachaça rests for 6 months in open steel tanks.

The organic process means not adding sugar and resting before bottling. Along with single-distillation and using only the heart of the distillate, all are key the spirit's high quality and distinctive, luxurious taste.

To create the distinctive character of Abelha Ouro it is aged for 3 years in 65 gallon (250 litre) casks made from Garapeira wood, a Brazilian Ash. Garapeira is used because it infuses nuanced characteristics into the liquid while still maintaining the unique agricole sugar cane base.


Abelha Cachaça is a family operation, produced at a single-estate from cane field to pot still. The estate is located in Rio de Contas, in the Chapada Diamantine region, which is in the heart of Bahia. The highland sandy soils are excellent terrain for growing Maria Bonita sugarcane.

    Cachaça Flavor Bomb!

    I'm no expert on Cachaça having only discovered this spirit in the summer of 2021. However I had purchased several bottles of Abelha Cachaça Prata (not aged) and it was far superior to any of the Cachaça I could find at my local ABC stores in North Carolina. On a whim I decided to try this expression which is aged and BOOM what a flavor bomb! It's great neat, great on the rocks and makes an outstanding Caipirinha. If you are into Cachaça you have to give this one a try. Even if you are not into Cachaça, if you like rum/rhum give it a try and enjoy the different flavors you get from it.
