It's true that Pitu is widely available in Europe as it is bottled in Germany and has been for a long while. Germany consumes the most cachaça a year anywhere outside of South America! Germany consumes almost 4.5 million litres a year! Pitu is considered to be one of the mass market brands. The others being Cachaça 51, Ypioca and Velo Barreiro. These four brands contribute to the bulk of the cachaça volume in Brasil and around the world. Cachaça 51 is the biggest of all with 35% market share.

Mention my name and get a wry smile...

Hi Angus!

A wry smile it would be too! Thanks for the mention.

Good to see you...will you be in London for the Bar Show or in New Orleans for Tales of the Cocktail. I'll be at both...

Question Cachaca 61 is not made in Brazil, is it real Cachaca??

I believe that Cachaca 61 is made in Spain not Brazil.
So according to the Cachaca quiz that I just took, only Cachaca made in Brazil is real Cachaca, although the USA TTB does not make a distinction based on origin ( or even recognize Cachaca as a spirit).
What do you think is Cachaca 61 really Cachaca ??

Cachaзa is not a spirit category according to the TTB, yet, but there is work going on to acknowledge it as such.

I have not seen or heard of Cachaзa 61, though I am familiar with P51 from Brazil.

When I dream up a better job, I'm going to take it. In the meantime, the research continues.

Here in Europe there are a lot of importers for Cachaca, espacally Cachaca Artesanal. Some of their products and desciption of the producers you can find on my homepage as well.
In Brazil their are over 5000 official producers for Cachaca...
Only the best ist good enough!

I've seen about 15 cachaзa brands from Germany and brought some back from Holland last month. There is Saphy International in France which stocks Velho Barreiro. You can't go wrong with that or the Sagatiba range.

I'm curious, what makes you think Cachaзa 61 is made in Spain?

I have a bottle at home, and don't remember any reference to Spain on the bottle. I'm curious, because sugar cane distillation would be unusual there.

I'm not even going to get into the added costs of transporting cane or juice to another continent while highly experienced distillers are available in Brazil

The company has offices in Sao Paulo and three distribution centers Brazil.
I don't see the logic of sending cane or juice from Brazil to Spain and then transporting it back to Brazil for global distribution

We can only get 2 cachacas here. Ypioca and Pitu. I got the Ypioca gold which i like. I also got 3 bottles of Sagatiba pura from Germany which is nice too. I`m hoping to soon get a bottle of Leblon.
