Cachaça (pronounced Ka-SHA-Sa) is the older cousin of Rum, made of freshly pressed sugar cane juice.

Cachaça can have a richer profile, as it is made of freshly pressed sugarcane juice and not the sugar cane syrup or molasses which is later used for rum.

For this reason, cachaça distinguishes itself with a more earthy sugar cane flavor.
