Fuba was created by brothers Rafael and Cassiano Agapito, who were determined to produce the most delicious cachaca using traditional recipes, coupled with modern, sustainable techniques. A wonderfully versatile cocktail ingredient from the heart of Brazil. Double-distilled, Fuba has a much rounder mouthfeel than its mass-produced counterparts and has no added sugar, resulting in a dry cachaça that makes it perfect for mixing.
Rafael Agapito, a 27-year-old Brazilian living in Dublin since 2005 (and former Manager of the ‘No Name’ cocktail bar on Dublin’s Fade Street), used Ireland as a European test-market to launch his new brand of Cachaça, Fubá Classica, the first in a range of spirits under the Fubá name.
Future variants, including a spiced Cachaça and a limited-edition aged Cachaça, are planned to create an exciting product range focused on quality and sustainability from production to glass.
Fubá is a family enterprise with Rafael at the helm in Ireland while his brothers co-ordinate things on the ground back home in Brazil.
