One step closer to Legalizing Cachaça

Steve Luttmann, founder of Leblon Cachaça, attended the annual Brazil on the Hill BBQ for US Congress in NYC this past Wednesday night.  Steve granted Brazilian Ambassador for the USA, Mauro Vieira, a very special gift!  He gave him our original Cachaça Declaration of Independence, signed by the top 500 bartenders in the world at the Tales of the Cocktail.

No, this picture is not blurry…you  just have had way too many Caipirinhas!

Supporters Gettin’ Funkie.


Legalize Cachaça supporters came out to the 1st ever Baile Funkie Fofo pop up party at the Thompson LES rooftop pool in NYC for some cocktails and beats. DJ Manero spun poolside, Gotham Synchro performed though out the evening, the Leblon Caipirinha Bar was mixing up strawberry basil and traditional caipirinhas, and the VIP’s had their very own Caipiristas to mix and muddle their drinks. Check out the scene covered  by New York Insider TV.

BIRTHDATE

We the People, in order to form a more perfect bar, seek to establish Cachaça as 'Cachaça,' Brazil's Noblve Spirit. We formally and necessarily declare that Cachaça is independent of, and therefore not, 'Brazilian Rum.' We make this declaration with no prejudice or malice towards Rum, nor to any other of our brethren spirits, such as Vodka, Tequila, or Gin.

To prove the above, let facts be submitted to a candid world: We recognize that Cachaça is made only from fresh-pressed cane juice, not molasses, and can only come from Brazil. We declare that Cachaça is the key ingredient to the Caipirinha, Brazil's National Cocktail. We also recognize that Cachaça mixes well with just about anything - fruit juices, sodas, and tonics - and brings a wonderful Brazilian touch to any classic cocktail.

We therefore hold these truths to be self-evident; that Cachaça is Brazil's Noble Spirit, endowed by its creator with certain unalienable characteristics, that among these are a fruity nose, fresh taste, and a long, clean finish. And in support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the confidence of our combined passion and expertise, we mutually pledge our understanding, our professionalism and our sacred honor.
