RioD Cachaca Arrives for Review
This just in - flavored liquor tends to be a good seller. Just look at the success of flavored vodkas and rums, and you'll know there's a niche to be filled for just about any kind of flavored booze. One liquor we hadn't thought about seeing move into the flavored field yet was Cachaca, but it appears that day is here already.
We just got in samples of three varieties of RioD, a premium Cachaca that we received in unflavored, "passion" (which we're guessing is passionfruit), and lime-flavored. We haven't had a chance to try it yet, but we're looking forward to reviewing it for posterity. Expect us to make many, many varieties of everyone's favorite drink (well, ok...ours at least), the caipirinha.

Interestingly I just went through the whole cachaça library and could not find one single "real" cachaça brands meaning none of these brands exist in Brazil. They seem to be all design products created for the US market. Does it make a difference, is authenticity important, is the ability to show where the first bottle was sold 160 years ago and to know that the same family now in it´s fifth generation keeps doing what it does best; producing the leading cachaça brand of Brazil in the AGED PREMIUM segment; CACHAÇA YPIOCA. Yes I think it does make a difference and I feel you do not have to work for this brand (as I do) to feel the same. As the old saying goes it´s not about the bottle it´s about what is inside the bottle. Kindly let me know if LiquorSnob would like to receive a sample for tasting and review of both our Ypioca Ouro (Gold) and Prata (Silver), both aged two years in wood casks(Ouro in Balsam wood, and Prata in Freijao). You can check us out at www.ypioca.com.br and we are available statewide in the US. Your´s, Christian Castren (firstname.lastname@example.org)Ypioca Export Departament, Fortaleza Brazil.
