Caipi-Mobile seen around Miami


C.R.N.V.L leaders rolled out their Mobile Headquarters for “Legalize Cachaca” during Art Basel in Miami recruiting members and spreading the word about Cachaça.  The Caipi-Mobile was seen around town supporting events and even served Leblon Caipirinhas at a private event in support of Brasil and Cachaça. Keep an eye out for the Caipi-Mobile throughout Miami!

Community Organizers Unite!


C.R.N.V.L. are the front line supporters of the Legalize Cachaça Movement. We believe to the core, that Cachaça deserves to be recognized as just that, Cachaça, in the United States. We are out on the streets everyday gaining followers of the Legalize Cachaça movement. Each supporter that joins our cause brings us one step closer to having the U.S Government to formally accept Cachaça as its own appellation.

The Inaugural Community Organizer event kicked-off last this past Thursday at Casale’s in Miami Beach, FL.  Community Organizers were inducted as C.R.N.V.L. Members and are ready to get their feet on the street as true supporters of Legalize Cachaça!

What is ‘Legalize Cachaça’ and why is it important?

new york

Legalize Cachaça is a movement in the United States to explicitly have ‘Brazilian Rum’ removed from Cachaça labels imported from Brazil into the United States, thereby recognizing Cachaça as its own appellation or ‘product type’ unique to Brazil (just like Cognac, Champagne, and Tequila).

The United States is the only country in the world to require Brazil to re-label their national spirit, Cachaça, as Brazilian Rum. This is very confusing to consumers, as Cachaça tastes completely different from Rum. It is also very insulting to Brazilians, as Cachaça is Brazil’s national spirit created in 1532 in Brazil – 100 years before the first Rum was ever created in the Caribbean.

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.
