It’s hard to know exactly who first created CASA, but it is generally believed that Cachaca was produced between 1530 and 1550, because it was at this time that sugarcane was introduced into Brazil as an important cash crop in the colony. And the slaves who planted and harvested sugarcane often collected the surplus of sugarcane processing in the farm and let it ferment into alcoholic beverages.

Later, it was realized that fermentation by boiling juice would be better, which led to today’s Cachaca, which is also regarded as “the drink of the poor” in Brazil. But this kind of appellation did not affect Cachaca’s becoming the most characteristic part of Brazilian culture, and let it flow into the hearts of Brazilians successfully. According to statistics, Brazilians consume 350 million gallons of Cachaca every year.
