What is Cachaça
Cachaça is one of the oldest spirits in the world and has been bringing friends and communities together since the 16th century. In Brazil, it is beloved by all, regardless of occupation or class. Pure cachaça is made from freshly- pressed sugar cane juice, fermented, and distilled using natural methods.
Cãna is an expression of togetherness. It is a blend of three unique cachaças, sourced from different regions of Brazil, each teeming with its own culture and traditions—a perfect synergy.
Cãna serves as a conduit, a tropical transportive experience to the rest of the world. Giving a new meaning to connection, to the feeling of belonging, to being one with nature. Remember, summer is everywhere.
The Process of Making Cãna
When making Cãna, our goal is to introduce the world to cachaça in the most natural way. When distilling, we repeat the process three times to ensure a balanced & refined taste. After it's processed, we add pure spring water from the nature reserves on our farm. Finally, we filter our cachaça through coconut husk charcoal to remove impurities and to add freshness in aroma and smoothness in taste.
To make CÃNA we use 100% Brazilian sugar cane, which is hand-cut and harvested once a year.

The pair of friends returned to Brazil to find a product they would be proud to call Brazilian. After a two-month long road trip throughout Brazil, they finally found what they were looking for—the first Cãna recipe and design. With this they returned to New York and began sharing it with friends.
The taste of Cãna cachaça is a transportive experience. When you open the bottle, the warmth of summer, the freshness of tropical forests, and the depth of friendship will all flood your senses. This is what we call Brazilianship. The pursuit of the perpetual tropical summer.
