Translated : "Cachaça is the typical distilled spirit of Brazil, made from the fermentation and distillation of sugarcane juice. It was first produced around 1530 only a few decades after the discovery of the country. Cachaça 51 is the traditional brand of Brazil, the market leader for decades and also one of the best selling brands of distilled in the world. We invite you to enjoy the fragrance and taste that is unique to Cachaça 51. Be it pure in Caipirinha cocktails or mixed with fruit, Cachaça 51 brings you the spirit of Basil."
Comments : More commonly referred to as 51 or as the Brazilian's would say "cinqüênta uns", it is the largest brand in Brazil as well as one of the cheapest in their supermarkets. As recently as February 2007, it was possible to buy a 968ml bottle of 51 for R2.99 (Brazilian Reis). At the time, that was equivilant to about £0.80. In comparrison a 700ml bottle in the UK would normally set you back about £15.00. Please be aware that if you do travel to Brazil and you decide to buy a bottle at the duty free on the way out, you will pay a figure more akin to R20
