Cachaça or rum?
|Cachaça is made of freshly sugar cane juice extraction||Rum is made generally of boiled sugar cane juice|
|Alcohol content 38 to 48%||Alcohol content 35 to 54%|
|Can be aged in different types of wood barrels that provides distinct aroma, color and flavors||Traditionally aged in oak barrels|
|100% Brazilian||Comes from different Latin American countries mostly in the Caribbean Region|
- This difference in the process results in a unique chemical composition, which distinct the spirits and brings different sensory properties. Boiling the sugar cane juice alters the substances present in the product, such as aldehydes and higher alcohols. This ends up modifying the final taste of the drink.
