Show your support! Come to Leblon. Have a Caipirinha.

Have you ever wondered how you could help support our Legalize Cachaça Movement?

The answer is simple…Enjoy a Leblon Caipirinha!

Leblon is the best Cachaça because it is made in the heart of Brazil by the master distiller, Gilles Merlet.  Recently, Leblon Cachaça was the only Cachaça awarded the title of Master, above of any other Cachaça.  Even Vitoria Secret Model Alessandra Ambrosio agrees that Leblon is the premium Cachaça.  She said she felt like she was back in Brazil the instant she took a sip of a Leblon Caipirinha at the Thompson’s LES Hotel.  The buzz about Cachaça is growing.  We know our Legalize Cachaça Movement has been successful when we see the feedback from magazines, blogs, facebook, twitter, and our Caipi-Mobile.

Raise your glass, cheers, and enjoy a refreshingly delicious Leblon Caipirinha!

To digitially sign the petition, complete the form below:


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.
