What an awesome surprise, this unique and fun souvenir and Homemade Cachaca store it is! Being an American now living in Rio I've tasted alot of different Cachaca's and by far theirs have been the best offereing a myriad of flavors that would match anyones tastes You can't miss this opportunity to not only purchase but taste many of them! This family owned business treated us just like family and spoke perfect English and we'll be back! A 5 STAR SHOP FOR SURE!

I typically do not buy souvenirs. Unless I am looking for something very specific to the region, I only browse to see what kind of goofy stuff there is.

Chad surprised me with his English and it was great to be able to have a conversation with someone for the first time in more than a week. After tasting a few different flavors of cachaça, I left with two small bottles.

Drop in even if it is only to say hello and ask for a taste!

Owners used to live in the US. They speak perfect English, and are a lot of fun. They also offered us samples of Cachaca from a local family farm! Highly recommend visiting this place

A cool little souvenir shop, but don't skip the amazing cachaça in the back tasting room. Some of the best I've had! And the staff speaks GREAT English. Come to find out they have family come to where I live back home. Small world! Great people!

Ideal for buying some reasonably priced souvenirs in a friendly atmosphere. We bought some Havianas and sampled their homemade version of white rum with different flavours..clean toilets available!!
