Visit an Artisanal Cachaça Distillery
The ingredient that gives a caipirinha, Brazil’s national drink, its kick, is cachaca, and you can get a closer look at how the alcoholic beverage is made at Flor do Vale a small distillery nestled in a bucolic valley just outside Canela in Rio Grande do Sul. From sugar cane milling to fermentation, explore the distillation process, then sample the final product in tastings or in the restaurant where cachaça makes its way into some of the dishes.
