Bitter Feminist Cachaça Wins Best Spirit By Package At 2022 USA Spirits Ratings

29/08/2022 Brazil’s Bitter Feminist Cachaça wins Gold with 96 points, Best in Show by Country Category, and Best Spirit by Package at the 2022 USA Spirits Ratings, held on July 24 in San Francisco, USA.

Bitter Feminist is a Black, female-led liquor company that openly honours the achievements of all mouthy, bitter women. Bitter Feminist enthusiastically supports causes and groups that uplift, empower, and improve the lives of women worldwide.

Bitter Feminist understands the importance of creating, delivering and disposing of products in an environmentally friendly manner. Instead of baking the bottles in an oven, the bottles are cured using LED and UV rays. The bottles are also Prop 65 compliant because they are printed with ink devoid of lead, antimony, arsenic, cadmium, chromium, mercury, and selenium. 

Bitter Feminist Cachaça personifies the joy of partying. It encourages happiness, good moments, and abundant living. Cachaça distinguishes itself as a spirit of excellent quality and powerful flavours, capable of endless variety, much like a woman. Its flavours range from fruity and refreshing to bold and spicy.

The sugar cane used to make cachaça is grown in the So Fidelis mountains, which are located close to Brazil's Atlantic Rainforest. The sugar cane is picked, properly separated, and pressed after growing for nearly a year. After being distilled in copper stills twice and resting for nine months, the sugarcane juice is put into glass bottles. The end result has a mild but lingering flavour with hints of peach, melon, and sugar cane.
