Proof66 Notes

Colinas do Sul cachaca is made from fresh-cut sugar cane by a cooperative of growers in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil (knowns as "Coopercasul" or "Cooperativa dos Productores de Cachaca e Derivados da Cana do Sul de Minas"). They are proud of using sustainable methods to harvest the sugar cane and stress it is "hand harvested" rather than burnt. Their fermentation is done with a "specially designed yeast" The name translates as "Hills of the South."

Colinas do Sul silver cachaca is aged for 3 months in Brazilian Jequitiba barrels, giving it a faint straw color.

We can say with some finality that working with cachaca in general is a lot more fun than working with light rum. Of the cachacas, the Colinas do Sul is very good but is slightly edged out in citrus settings by the Leblon. But in herbal settings—and we would put Coke in this class!—the Colinas is the better of two very good choices. At the time of this writing, Leblon is in the number one position of 61 rated cachacas according to our algorithm. The Colinas do Sul can enter the field confidently with Leblon and even best it in some categories: a very well-made spirit and an excellent choice for upscale settings and herbal/spice cocktails.
