Velho Barreiro, produced since 1873, is one of the most appreciated 'Cachaas' in Brazil. It has a delicate aroma, due to the very careful double distillation production method. Velho Barreiro has a smoky aroma and is warm and has a smooth finish due to the very careful methods of distillation employed. While the aging process does not drastically affect the colour of this clear spirit, it does impart depth, flavour and harmony.
