Cachaça Zé Grande is produced with sugar cane planted and harvested on the farm itself.
Harvesting is done by hand, without burning, as burning the cane for harvesting increases the acidity of the juice and harms the quality of the cachaça. The harvested cane is washed in running water before being processed and must be milled within 24 hours. From garapa to Cachaça Zé Grande, no chemical additives are used. The yeasts are sugar cane yeasts.
