History of Salinas Cachaça

From Birth to the National and International Tables

Salinas Cachaça has in its history a life dedicated to the production process, an inheritance from father to son and a knowledge enhancement to achieve high quality. It started at a time when the whole process meant a lot of manual hard work like grinding the cane in a wooden mill pulled by ox, manually washing the dark bottles, bottling and labeling. Today, some of the handcraft processes are kept, but always with compliance to legislation to guarantee the best quality and hygiene.

The Emergence of the Brand Salinas Cachaça

1942 - The brand "Havana" appeared by the hands of the producer Anísio Santiago. He was the first cachaça producer to associate the drink to a brand, giving origin and personality to the product.

1972 - Mr. João Fernandes Sobrinho began producing cachaça and gave birth to the brand "Meia Lua" ( literally means Half Moon)

1988 - Ailton Alves Fernandes, a business leader and the producer of high quality cachaças like Salinas, founded the "Meia Lua" and increased its production which led to a new brand known as "Meia Lua Prata" (literally means Half Silver Moon) and in 2006 launched the brand "Beleza de Minas" (literally means Beauty of Minas )
Today, in partnership with Guilherme Alcântara, Cachaça Meia Lua, is an internationally recognized product, the first cachaça to be exported to the United States . Cachaça Meia Lua has distributors throughout the country and preserves the quality of the region of Salinas to offer to the connoisseurs a traditional and refined drink.
