Alcohol museum in Goa

New Update


Goa has got its first alcohol museum. This innovative exercise has been started by Nandan Kudchadkar, who is an antique collector. The museum is named 'All About Alcohol' and it is located in the village of Candolim. The museum has hundreds of artifacts linked to feni, including large, traditional glass vats in which the cashew-based feni was stored centuries ago.

According to Nandan Kudchadkar, the aim behind starting the museum is to make the world aware of Goa`s rich heritage, especially the story of feni and the legacy of the alcohol trail from Brazil to Goa.

Cashew feni is the first indigenous liquor from India to get the Geographical Indication tag. In 2016, feni was notified as the state heritage drink by the government of Goa with the objective to allow its manufacturers to market it globally on the lines of Scotch and tequila.
