Born in Brazil; raised in France.
Some people consider it as a dream, others as a chimera of a new world. A world where biodiversity and savoir-faire would become one. A world growing up under the eye of Gaya, mother of all living beings...
Gaya only responds to its own rules: the respect of nature and mankind. The artisanal tradition of cachaça linked with ageing techniques of old world spirits.
These standards allow us to elaborate high quality artisanal cachaças, respectful of Brazil's terroirs and its typicities.
Born in Brazil and raised in France, Gaya cachaça sublimates aromas to make you travel and open new horizons.
What if after all, it was not a dream?
A specific savoir-faire in artisanal cachaça
Each sprig of sugar cane is chosen and harvested by hand according to its ripening. It is then crushed immediately to preserve its optimal freshness.
The alliance between the microclimate of the plantation and the variety of sugar cane gives birth to a unique yeast that produces a 100% natural fermentation.
Soft distillation with a progressive heating in a small copper still allows to perpetuate the tradition and to elaborate a small-batch cachaça rich in aromas.
Our first blend:
Jequitiba – Minas Gerais
The Jequitiba tree has always been an emblematic element of the Minas Gerais region.
The tree was already venerated by the Tupi-Guarani people thanks to its many ancestral virtues.
After a first maturation in stainless steel barrels, our Gaya Jequitiba-MG blend is transferred to Jequitiba Rose barrels in order to accentuate the diversity of aromas.
The absence of filtration processes preserves the aromas of fresh cane juice and white flowers while retaining a touch of Amerindian shamanism.
A second blend from another brazilian terroir will soon complete the Gaya offer. Patience, Mother Nature is working...
Respect for nature
Gaya wants to guarantee the respect for nature and its biodiversity.
We strive to minimize our carbon impact throughout the production process:
Vinhoto: the surplus of the distillation is used to water and bring natural fertilizer to our plantations.
Bagasse: The fibrous residue of the sugar cane is used as fuel for the still.
Water: Water is used for cooling the stills only in closed circuit.
Aging : For every barrel of Jequitiba used, ten trees are replanted on our plantation.
Logistics: Small deliveries in Paris are made by bicycle.
Respecting nature also means respecting its natural cycles. We always prioritize seasonal fruits in our cocktails.
Enjoy Gaya as a single tasting or in mixology.
Dive into its world through intense and balanced cocktails.
You can also sign up for cocktail workshops with our partner Boteco, a reference for Brazilian cocktails in Paris.
and so much more ...
