Cachaçaria Gota de Minas
On this tour visitors will see the cane used in the production of the drink that is harvested by hand and is not burned, a practice that precipitates deterioration.
GRIND: The mills separate the juice from the bagasse, which is used to heat the furnaces of the still. The cane juice is decanted and filtered to then be prepared with the addition of nutrients and taken to the fermentation vats.
FERMENTATION: Production does not allow the use of chemical additives. Drinking water, corn meal and rice bran are the ingredients that are mixed with sugarcane juice to turn it into alcohol through the action of yeast (natural fermenting agents in the air).
DISTILLATION: Cane wine produced by the yeast during fermentation is rich in components harmful to health, such as aldehydes, acids, oil cake and bacteria, but has a low alcohol concentration. With the concentration is fixed by law from 38 to 54 GL, you need to distill the mixture to raise the alcohol content
AGING: The process that enhances the quality of taste and aroma of the beverage, aging is the final stage of preparation of cachaça. The storage is made, preferably in wooden barrels, where chemical reactions still occur.
