A Cachaça

Produced from newly harvested sugarcane cuts, Pitú represents Brazil’s traditional Cachaça. Besides a strict quality control, the product goes through a resting process in marrying tanks, which gives the product aroma and flavor.

Sugar Cane

Pernambuco occupies a distinctive place in the sugarcane culture and in production of Cachaça. Sugar cane was first planted in Fernando de Noronha Island, in 1504, and Cachaça was first drank on the coast of Pernambuco state between 1516 and 1526. Thus, Cachaça was the first spirit made in America.



The master distiller

The great master distiller of Engarrafamento Pitú was one of its founders – Mr. Joel Cândido Carneiro. During his entire life, he was in charge of the production and sensorial quality control of Pitú Cachaça.

Following his steps, his granddaughter, Maria das Vitórias Carneiro Cavalcanti, has been working to guarantee Pitú Cachaça quality standards.

Environmental Liability

All activities of the company are in accordance with the environmental laws and rules. Pitú has an environmental friendly production process. In the Affluent Treatment Station, 100% of the water used to wash the bottles is treated. In the Effluent Treatment Station, 80% of the wastewater used for cleaning bottles is treated and returned to the river with a better quality. 98% of labels from returned and washed bottles are used to make compost.

Quality Control

Pitú Cachaça quality is guaranteed through strict control from the field to the consumer: In the Sensorial Analysis Laboratory, the quality of the aroma is assessed; in the Central Laboratory, the physical-chemical analysis is performed; in the Production Laboratory, the quality of all raw materials used during the bottling is checked.
