Pitu is a Brazilian spirit made from pure sugar cane. Only the sugar-cane juice from the first pressings is used for export.
This juice contains the fresh, pure taste. A maturing process of several weeks in a wooden vat allows this taste to unfold completely.
The quality achieved in this way forms the ideal basis for a Premium Caipirinha – Cut a lime into eight pieces, place in glass, add 1-2 teaspoons of cane sugar, squeeze out the lime juice with the Pitu pestle, add 6cl of Pitu, fill the glass with crushed ice, stir and enjoy!

Would I buy this again? Without a doubt that – I shall be making my Caipirinhas with this so I don’t have to drink too much of it!
When it comes to making drinks – and especially cocktails – Cachaca is fast becoming the premier spirit. Not only does a great Cachaca taste great in drinks, the bottle is better designed for mixing and building drinks.
This is because Cachaca comes in the traditional, large, bulbous, capping bottle which mixes well and empties from the bottle easily.
We have chosen Pitu as it is a very fresh new product of Brazilian Cachaca and was awarded the Gold Medal trophy for the 3 Star Cachaca Caipirinha at the International Wine Challenge 2009.
Whether made with the brandy bottle, double distilled or triple distilled, Cachaca is fast becoming the spirit of choice for top bar mixologists.
Enjoying a long tradition as an ingredient in famous Brazilian cocktails — most famously the Caipirissima — Cachaca has been on the world market for less than one hundred years.
It is still made in a traditional way, in small batches and matured in wood for up to five years. The result is a spirit with a fine, delicate aftertaste. It is not, and never will be comparable to the aggressively-sweet cachaça that, unfortunately, is what many people think of when they hear the word ‘cachaca.’
This ‘big, bad’ cachaca is made from caña de azucar (sugar) molasses, which is produced by the sugar cane industry. It is distilled twice and is therefore sweeter than caña pura (pure sugar cane), which is distilled three or more times. Cachaca made from caña pura is called cachacielo.
Our Pitu has won the Gold Medal in the International Wine Challenge 2009. Its production is very important to Brazil and its image as a popular spirit.
Cachaca is the traditional ingredient of the drink Caipirinha, which is served in almost every bar in Brazil. That’s why we introduce the first-class Cachaca Pitu into the German market. A Cachaca with superior quality produced in a sustainable way.
The quality certification for organic agriculture guarantees that there is no possibility of pollution during the manufacture of our Cachaca. Pitu Cachaca is supplied in a clear glass bottle in order to bring out the authentic Cachaca taste.
