Velho Barreiro

By Velier

Our collaboration with the Velho Barreiro brand was born from our friendship with Beatrice Paoletti, a passionate Brazilian who came to live in Italy. This bond began in the years when Brazilian restaurants were being set up in our territory. Since then, Beatrice has proposed various Brazilian products to me, including coconut water and many others. Among these products, she also submitted Velho Barreiro to me, which is now a historical brand in Brazil.



Velho Barreiro cachaça is known as one of the most traditional cachaça in Brazil. The brand belongs to the Indústrias Reunidas de Bebidas Tatuzinho, founded in 1950 in the Brazilian city of Piracicaba, in the district of São Paulo. Its Cachaça is today the most famous spirit in Brazil. Starting in the 1990s, Indústrias Reunidas de Bebidas Tatuzinho, in addition to producing Cachaça, also began offering other spirits, but Velho Barreiro remains its most prestigious label.

Production method

Mixed techniques are used in its production; specific yeasts are used to ferment the sugar cane juice. After distillation, the cachaça is rested in wooden barrels. Ageing ranges from two to twelve years and normally takes place in Brazilian white oak or other tropical hardwoods. The distillation, from which a product with an alcohol content ranging from 68 to 70 degrees is obtained, is reduced to around 40° vol. before being placed in wooden barrels ranging from a capacity of 500 litres up to 5,000 litres.
