I just recently returned form a trip to Brazil where I had the opportunity to visit, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, and the heart of cachaça production region, Patos de Minas.
While touring in Rio, I met up with my friends from The Sunset Lounge at the Mondrian Hotel (Miami Beach, FL).
We spent a few days together visiting some of Rios top restaurants and bars; Aprazivel, Jobi, Bar D Hotel, and Hotel Fasano as well was having the opportunity to speak with some of Brazils most respected authorities of Cachaça like Paulo Magoulas of Academia de Cachaça. Before leaving Rio we spent an afternoon on Leblon Beach with Josh Wagner and Angelo Vieira tasting various Cachaças and making fresh fruit caipirinhas using some unique ingredients found in South America.
Our trip would not be complete without visiting some distilleries. Check out the photos from our tour through the Maison Leblon and enjoy the video that shows our exploration through Rio.
