In the early 20th century the roads and mountain passes of Minas Gerais were rough. So Caetano would wrap his cachaça in banana leaves before loading them onto his mules with the smoked meat, corn, and cheese he sold to the local miners. Today, Germana carries on this tradition by hand tying the bottles in dried banana leaves without any glue or adhesives.
After distillation, Traditional da Palha Cachaça is aged for two years in french oak casks, softening the spirit giving it a silky mouthfeel.

* Sugarcane fields are not burned which means there is no char in the fermentation process like many other cachaças.
** The pressed sugarcane fibers are used as the fuel for the direct fire to heat the still. Germana is the only Cachaça distillery using open fire distillation.
