Feni

"What did do you in Goa if you didn't taste Feni in a local taverna," this is the first thing you'll hear in Goa if you haven't tried this drink. As local as it gets, this drink is an intrinsic part of Goan culture and tradition.

This traditional alcohol is distilled from the fermented juice of cashew apples with a strong odour and a distinctive aftertaste. Feni has started moving out of homes and local tavernas and is in the process of finding new fans as it builds a reputation as a premium spirit.
