Giffard offers a range of spirits of the Cachaça Thoquino. The family distillery Thomaz de Aquino founded in 1906 (Grupo Thoquino), has produced cachaça for over 100 years. It is found in Sao Joao Da Barra in the Campos region (Rio State) the traditional home of sugar cane production since 1532. This region is blessed with an exceptional soil and has an exceptional number of hours of sunshine.
It is one of the rare distilleries to have its own sugar cane plantations, which lets it control the production on the plantation and guarantees constant quality. Thoquino cachaça is an “Aguardente de Cana” 100% pure sugar cane, made with freshly pressed sugar cane juice which is then fermented for 8 days having been distilled (double distillation). This fermentation is longer than that of rum, contributing to its unique taste.
