Next weekend starts the Leblon sponsored campaign to legalize cachaça. This Brazilian spirit is currently imported as “Brazilian Rum” and according to the Cachaça Declaration of Independence that is hopefully soon to be changed, “We formally and necessarily declare that cachaça is independent of, and therefore not, ‘Brazilian Rum’“.
The Los Angeles march starts at Asia de Cuba at The Mondrian [map] at 4:30 p.m. where a petition to legalize cachaça will be signed. The second stop is at Ketchup restaurant [map] at 6:30 p.m. for more cocktails and the party finds its resting place at 7:30 p.m. at Red Rock [map] where the true debauchery is sure to begin.
“Legalize Cachaça is our mantra,” said Kevin Swanson from Leblon Cachaça. “Come join us for some fun, have some Caipirinhas, and let’s stop calling this stuff Rum!“
