Welcome to "Cachaça Making and Tasting" experience! We will start in Cinelândia ( The Cinema Square), the main symbol of the Belle Epoque at the beginning of the 20th century, we will see the last Cinema (Odeon) and the last Theater (Riachuelo) of this period. We will continue to Selarón Steps, one of the most visited tourist spots in the city, passing through the famous Lapa Arches. After that, we will enter Fundição Progresso, a former factory from the 19th century, today one of the main live music nightclubs in Lapa, where we will visit a Cultural Center with some beautiful photos of the old Rio and an amazing viewpoint. After this interesting historical tour, we will go through some of Lapa's most traditional bars and follow ahead straight to the Cachaça Social Club, where we will learn the process of how to make "Cachaça", Brazil's most traditional alcoholic beverage, using an incredible Urban "Alambique" (Cachaça Maker) that we can only find in Cachaça Social Club, the Cachaça Culture Residence of Rio de Janeiro, according to the State Government. Three tastings will be offered: sugar cane as fruit, sugar cane as juice and ready-to-drink craft "Cachaça". To finish our experience, we will hold a "Caipirinha" Workshop - the classical Brazilian drink - And taste the "Caipirinhas" made by ourselves. Making, tasting and having a lot of fun!
