I am a journalist and public relations and an enthusiast of cachaça, a genuinely Brazilian drink that has been associated with the history and traditions of Brazil since its discovery.
I am a cachaça sommelier and for some years I have taken courses to learn more about the drink: its history, production, consumption, qualities, sensory analysis, harmonization, among others.
I am part of the Confraria das Mulheres da Cachaça and I want to share my knowledge of this wonderful drink with Brazilians and foreigners so that everyone can learn to choose, buy and taste the best Brazilian cachaça, with all its quality and versatility of flavors.

Denise is absolutely lovely, and this experience was really fun and interesting. The five cachaças Denise had chosen for our tasting were each very unique and different from one another. The incredible variety of possible tasting notes in cachaça was therefore very apparent. The restaurant where this takes place seems excellent as well, and I would love to go back on my own for a full meal. There were five of us in the group, which was a perfect size. It was an overall great experience and I highly recommend.

A experiência foi espetacular, desde o local até os nossos colegas de mesa! Denise uma ótima anfitriã, muito atenciosa, simpática e divertida, sem falar de sua amiga Luisa, com ótimas histórias, e super alegre. Fomos muito bem recebidos por todos, e o encontro foi adorável, o acarajé, as cachaças e o drinque estavam uma delícia, e as instruções sobre como degustar, e todo conhecimento que Denise nos passou, desde a história da cachaça até os atuais alambiques foram valiosos. Obrigada á todos pela experiencia, com certeza voltaremos!!! :))

Foi incrível. Aprendi muito sobre cachaça e experimentei diversas qualidades de excelente qualidade. Além das que estavam na descrição do evento, Luiza, a dona da rota do acarajé, empolgou-se e nos ofereceu para experimentar ainda outras. Foi uma experiência única. Certamente lembrarei da experiência com muito carinho!
