When Vantguard decided to launch a new spirit, the aim was to do something different and challenging, in a world in which everything is invented.
Brazil has the greatest cultural, natural, biological and racial diversity on the planet. If it could be defined in one word; to Vantguard, Brazil is “LIFE”. And what could be described as one of the most iconic forms of liveliness in Brazil is CACHAÇA. Renowned for its most famous mix: THE CAIPIRIÑA.
Filled with the desire to bottle this life for all the world to try, Vantguard ventured out to create its own version of CACHAÇA, with Brazilian soul and premium body. Adapting the traditional spirit with differentiated nuances and aromas and mixing it as has never been mixed before.
Thus CAPUCANA was created. A unique blend of sugar canes distilled and finally rounded off in American oak barrels previously used for bourbon, which are then left to further mature in the magical region of Islay, aged with peat-distilled malt whisky.
