Ultra Premium Brazilian Cachaça

Sambaia Blanche Brazilian Cachaça Ultra Premium

Sambaia Cachaca reflects the best in Brazilian artisan distilling expertise. It has been formulated to transmit the quintessence of sugar-cane.

As such and unlike other small producers of cachaca, we do not let it mature in casks as this tends to alter its quality and authenticity.

This is why Sambaïa cachaca retains its purity and crystalline colour as well as its unique taste.

Its sugar cane flavour and hints of sea salt are unmistakeable, and it also has a distinctive fruity aroma (ranging from banana to cherry).
It has a lovely light clear aftertaste with undertones of aniseed.

Sambaïa cachaca is a perfectly balanced drink, ideal for cocktails but just as nice on its own!

Sambaia Or Brazilian Cachaça Ultra Premium

Sambaïa “Or” cachaca is an exquisite drink, produced from choice sugar canes and matured to perfection in umburana wood barrels. This Brazilian cherry wood gives the drink its unique gold colour and powerful fruity aroma.

Thanks to the dedication and hard work of the Minas Gerais master distillers and the art of slow maturing in wooden barrels, Sambaïa Or offers a unique lingering array of flavours.

Softened by the time spent maturing in barrels, this cachaca at first delivers subtle hints of cherry, banana or coconut.

This is followed by an explosion of flavours – spices, cinnamon, vanilla, nuts, caramel or apple crumble. It rounds off with a delicate, smooth aftertaste. This is high class cachaca indeed – magnificent, unique, generous and original. Drunk neat, you will be surprised by how favourably it compares with a good cognac or whiskey.

As an ice-cold shot it will reveal smooth elegance.

Add Sambaïa “Or” to a Caipirinha and it will enhance the celebrated Brazilian drink with its fresh array of original flavours…

It can also be used to create classy cocktails!

How it is made


Cachaca is obtained from fermented and distilled sugar cane juice. Its alcohol content varies from 38° to 48°.

To ensure optimum quality, sugar cane should be pressed to collect the juice within two hours of harvesting.

Sambaïa Farm, set in the heart of the Minas Gerais state in Brazil, has the ideal climate to produce the best sugar canes for cachaca.

Sambaïa cachaca is distilled slowly in copper stills under the expert eye of the master distiller. It can be bottled immediately or left to age in special wooden barrels.
Don’t be fooled by the host of industrial cachaca which overlook the distillery process in order to mass produce! This is why one can come across poor quality cachaca.
It is easy to recognize a good quality cachaca by its smell. It should have topnotes of sugar-cane rather than alcohol. The first sip should be delicious with no burning sensation in your mouth or throat. It can be enjoyed neat or in a cocktail. Our Sambaïa cachaca is bottled at the fazenda (plantation).

We have been awarded the AMPAQ quality label for the flavour and quality of our Sambaïa cachaca.
