About Avuá Cachaça
Avuá was born out of a melding of minds in New York when American Nate Whitehouse was introduced to Brazilian music, culture and cocktails. Fuelled by Whitehouse’s interest in cachaça, Nate and co-founders of Avua, Peter Nevenglosky and Mark Christou, flew to Brazil in 2011 in hopes of learning more.
After meeting dozens of producers and tasting hundreds of samples they discovered Katia Espírito Santo and her cachaça estate in Carmo, four hours north of Rio de Janeiro. Crafting cachaça on her family’s farm, Katia is one of Brazil’s only female distillers. Her family has been producing the spirit here since 1923.
