Leblon Cachaça is distilled in Patos de Minas, in the heart of Minas Gerais, Brazil (think sugar cane fields). They combine traditional approaches with creative European winemaking techniques to create a Cachaça that is extra special.
Gilles Merlet, famous master distiller from the Cognac region of France, takes Cachaça to a whole new level with his 'French touch,' transforming the distillery in Patos de Minas to the state-of-the-art Maison Leblon. Gilles produces small batches using alembique copper potstills, then polishes the Cachaça in XO Cognac Casks for an ultra-smooth taste. The Cachaça is then blended across batches for flavour complexity, body, and aroma.
