Cachaça is a Brazilian liquor made from distilled sugar cane
juice. While rum is distilled from molasses, cachaça is distilled
directly from the juice of the unrefined sugar cane. Prior to
distillation the juice ferments in a wood or copper container for
three weeks, and is then boiled down three times to a concentrate.
Cachaça is always distilled in such a way that the scent of sugar cane
and inimitable flavor typical of rum are retained.
