Cachaça Rainha do Vale is the
consequence of its producers’ vocation. In 1994, the brothers
Márcio, Marisa e Tomás Vieira de Moura, thinking in a new
professional activity, concluded that their vocation was connected
with their origins, the rural activity.
They also concluded that, according to their education, they should
be linked to something which claimed for quality and expressed their
love for their land and culture.
They studied various options and decided to produce on the Gameleira
farm, in Belo Vale – M.G., where they were born, the cachaça Rainha
do Vale, with the purpose of producing a cachaça of very high
quality. The preservation of the nature has also deserved special
attention. The project was accomplished after a long period of
research on the process of production and also the cachaça market.
We have collected information, visited institutions, alembics,
suppliers, and taken courses.
Thus, the first vintage of the cachaça Rainha do Vale was distilled
in 1997, through a improved process, according to the AMPAQ (
Mineira Association of Producers of Cachaças of Quality) principals.
Tradition is an indispensable ingredient for a good cachaça. The
quality was maintained and improved throughout the centuries because
of the tradition. And the most pure and delicious cachaças in Brazil
is a tradition of Minas Gerais. Maintaining the tradition of Minas
Gerais in the production of craft cachaças, Rainha do Vale is
produced in facilities designed specially for this activity, with
the purpose of reaching quality.
In this way, the result was the achievement of a pure and unique
cachaça, made with the indispensable dedication, according to the
best and most traditional techniques, with the use of selected canes,
fermentation absolutely natural and slow distillation.
