Proof66 Notes

Avua Amburana cachaca is made from pressed sugar cane juice—as is all cachaca in Brazil—but then aged in indigenous amburana wood. They describe the flavor notes as "warm and savory." 

According to the write-up in Gourmet Magazine, Avua cachaca (pronounced "ahv - WAH") was founded by Nate Whitehouse, Pete Nevenglosky, and Mark Christou who sought out distiller Katia Espirito Santo to bring her artisanal cachaca to market. The name is said to originate from the Portuguese word "voar" for "soar" or "fly." They call the cachaca "single source" or what we would think of as "estate" because the sugar cane is exclusively grown on Santo's farm near Rio. They believe that the region near the farm lends a specific quality to the sugar cane that comes through in the spirit.
