Leblon Caipirinhas Cocktail Kit
Leblon is an artisinal cachaca made in the state of Minas Gerais. Fresh cut sugarcane ferments for 15 hours before being transported to alambique copper pot stills for single-batch distillation. The distillate is then rested up to 6 months in Vintage XO Cognac casks from France. The various batches are then master blended, and the final batch is triple-filtered and bottled in glass.
Maison Leblon’s philosophy is that a great cachaça is made in the cane field first. Just like a great French wine, Leblon treats its cane with the utmost respect and care, ensuring that the final product represents everything that this fruit has to offer. Leblon’s dedicated team of cane cutters cuts each stalk by hand with a machete. The fresh-cut sugar cane is quickly transported to the distillery, where whole stalks are pressed into fresh sugar cane juice, called caldo de cana. Unlike other cachaça distilleries, which increase the force of their pressing to maximize juice yield, the Maison Leblon gently presses the cane to extract only the best-tasting sensorial qualities from the cane stalks.
