PITÚ is a Brazilian spirit made of pure sugar cane. It is also known as "sugar cane schnapps", and is the national drink of Brazil, where it is usually drunk neat, as Caipirinha, or mixed with fruit juices. In Europe, PITÚ is most commonly used as PITÚrinha - the premium Caipirinha with PITÚ. PITÚ is produced from pure sugar cane. It should therefore not be compared with white rum, which is manufactured from sugar cane leftovers such as molasses. PITÚ only uses the best, most selected sugar cane, distilled and processed to the highest technical standards. The harvested green sugar cane is shredded into small pieces, the chaff removed, and the product then mashed.
