A huge festival dedicated to cachaça is coming to Manchester, bringing over 50 varieties of the Brazilian drink.
House of Cachaça is bringing what they’re call the largest Cachaça festival in Europe to the city, open for anyone who is looking to experience the unique Brazilian spirit.
Made from fermented sugarcane juice, Cachaça – which is most similar to rum – is well known for being the central ingredient in the Caipirinha cocktail. But there are many other ways to drink this spirit, as it can be mixed and prepared differently depending on region, climate, and ageing methods.
There are already over 50 confirmed brands attending the Manchester festival including Yaguara Cachaça, Leblon Cachaça, Magnifica Cachaça do Brasil and Cachaça 51 and lots more. Some brands, such as Maria Joao, have never been exhibited outside of the Brazil before.
As well as serving up the spirit, the festival will showcase the best ways to mix and serve, including masterclasses by the Cachaça mastermind Milton Lima, a specialist from Cúpula da Cachaça.
This festival – which takes place at the Britannia Sachas Hotel on Saturday April 7 – also promises an abundance of both live music and DJs, alongside tastings, exhibitions and Brazilian food stalls.Cachaça Festival Brazilian Food Brazilian Music
