The most crucial consideration when drinking cachaça neat is the type of glass you use. Like most other high-quality spirits, cachaça is best consumed in a glass with a stem. Of course, many of us don’t like to consume spirits in a glass with a stem. We prefer a tumbler or even a shot glass.
Just remember, to get the best sensory experience, use a glass that exposes the spirit to oxygen. Exposing the spirit to oxygen opens the spirit, revealing its full range of smells and tastes.
Choose your glass wisely. Avoid using shot glasses unless you have no other choice.
