Abelha Cachaça Retailing in Whole Foods Market Kensington

Pretty exciting – Abelha Cachaça are working with Whole Foods Market in Kensington as our official retail partner! They will be stocking Abelha Silver and Abelha Gold in their new spirits section, alongside a lot of other excellent, organic spirits.

If you haven’t been to the store before, you should do – it’s huge, and full of delicious stuff, including a machine from which you can blend and dispense your own fresh pistachio nut butter. We are now giving you the perfect excuse to get down there, as this Saturday 29th August, we’ll be down there doing sampling.

We’ll be knocking out caipirinhas, other fresh fruit cocktails and a delicious new serve of Abelha Cachaça mixed with Organic Elderflower Presse, all made with things you can find in the store.

2-6 pm, Saturday 26th August

Braziliality’s 1st Birthday Party

Braziliality, curated by the lovely Alicia Bastos, is an ongoing monthly art exhibition at the 16mm Cafe in Soho, which showcases work from Brazilian artists, or work inspired by Brazil.

We were happy to sponsor their first Birthday party, as it featured work from Eduardo Zappia who joined up with the volunteer firefighters in Chapada Diamantina (where Abelha Cachaça is created), to combat the massive bushfires there last year.

Action for Brasil’s Children Fundraiser Party @ Barrio North

Our friends at Barrio North are putting a load of parties for carnival this weekend, with the last due being Tuesday the 24th. There’s £3 Abelha caipirinhas all night, free brasilian food, samba and b-boys. DJ Limão is playing a load of Rio Funk and carnival tunes and it’s also raising money for Action for Brazil’s Children.

For those of you that haven’t been, Barrio North is a latin vibe DJ bar on Essex Road (Angel tube is 5 mins), great cocktails, friendly staff, and gets dancey-busy with a good looking N1 crowd Thursday through til Saturday. They also have a goddamn caravan right in the middle of the bar, and serve a mean caipirinha (made with the finest small batch cachaça from Bahia – that’s Abelha Cachaça, for those of you who are slow to catch on!!) too.

 

Buy Abelha Cachaça in our Soho, Central London shop

I’m pleased to announce that we have now set up a new secret off license right store on Berwick Street, right in the center of Soho, London.

Berwick News and Food

Berwick News and Food, shortly to be renamed Berwick News, Food and Quality Cachaça, is now stocking Abelha Cachaça Silver and Gold. It’s an excellent shop and I suggest you go there on your lunchbreak to get a Mars bar, bag of Frazzles and a 70cl bottle of Abelha Cachaça. That’s what I have for lunch every day anyway.

Cachaça Abelha Silver £16.99 - excellent unaged cachaça with great nose, full flavour and a smooth dry finish. Great for caipirinhas and other cocktails.

Cachaça Abelha Gold £22.99 - a matchless cachaça that’s aged for three years in Brasilian Ash barrels to give it beautiful mellow flavour. For sipping neat, caipirinhas or cocktails, or in a shot glass with a dot of honey.

Cachaça, Cocktails and Cartels: Exclusive Preview Party

IMG_0095

Saturday 29th November saw our exclusive pre-launch preview party at the Austin Gallery in Shoreditch. Thanks to everyone who came down, we were pretty packed at one point – a lot of limes and a few ping pong balls were harmed in the course of the evening. The first of many good cachaça-fueled nights to come. Special thanks to our bar staff Jess, Sarah and Emma, who did an excellent job keeping you all in drinks.

Props to Cookie’s crew (Cookie, Nicky, Ele, Sachi) and the Fun Bus (Molly, Tom, Selina, Anthony) who joint win the prizes for best crews as Naked Brasilians and Queen, respectively.

The whole night went perfectly, apart from my screw-up where I directed everyone to the wrong venue for the after-party, which caused a few groups of people to wander aimlessly up and down Hackney Road looking for a non-existent strip club. For those that did make it the after-party, may I apologise and say I have no idea what those naked guys were doing in the club (aside from fluffing themselves); they were definitely not from the Abelha Q4 marketing budget!
