Tourists Will Get To See How Goa’s Feni Is Made

This season, tourists will soon be able to see how feni –Goa’s signature drink- is made at ‘bhatis’. Bhatis are the places where feni is created using traditional means. In 2016, feni was declared as the heritage drink of Goa. These tours were supposed to happen last year but got stalled because of the pandemic.

“Goa tourism is working on the tours, and if all goes well, tourists will get to see how feni is distilled starting this season,” a tourism official said. Goa’s cashew season is only from February to May. Watching the making of this classic drink will expose travellers to a part of Goa’s heritage. President of the cashew feni distillers and bottlers association, Gurudutta Bhakta, said: “They will get to see various processes involved in feni making. It is high time the world gets to see how feni is made.”

Earlier, the cashew apples used to be stomped on to extract the juice. But nowadays mild steel machines are used instead. A distiller said: “Before showcasing the functioning of bhatis to visitors, it would be in the interest of the industry that measures are taken to ensure hygiene at bhatis.”
