Campari has launched the brand in the US this week

Gruppo Campari is re-introducing Sagatiba cachaça to the US. 

The two-strong "premium" cachaça range was launched in New York, Florida, Southern California, Northern California and Nevada this week, the group's US unit said yesterday (12 June). The launch was timed to coincide with yesterday's International Cachaça Day. 

Sagatiba Pura, an unaged cachaça, has an SRP of US$24.99 per 75cl bottle, while Sagatiba Velha, aged for two to three years, will retail at $29.99. 

“Cachaça is the third-largest spirits category in the world and is quickly becoming one of the hottest, fastest-growing categories in the US market,” said Umberto Luchini, Campari America's head of marketing. “We’re excited to share one of Brazil’s favourite exports with American consumers.”

Sagabita was founded by Brazilian entrepreneur Marcos de Moraes in 2004 and acquired by Campari in 2011 for $36.3m.
