Goa has a tremendous range of beverages to entice you, whether you’re looking for a pleasant refreshment to fight off thirst or you’re going out to party. While foreign alcoholic drinks are costly, there are a plethora of local alternatives that are very well worth exploring.
It’s a guarantee that you’ll dedicate the most of your vacation money on Goa’s nightclubs, so why not try something new? Whisky, beer, gin, and rum are now being combined with natural, native components in particular areas, reimagining your classic alcoholic drink with great precision.
Here are some of the best drinks to enjoy in Goa
If you’ve been hiding below a rock in Goa, you can’t miss trying Feni, the country’s distinctive alcohol. The Portuguese imported feni to India in the 16th century, along with potatoes, peppers, and chiles.
Feni is usually made from aged and distilled juice from cashew or coconut trees. The beverage is accessible anywhere, from wooden huts and inexpensive motels to high-end pubs.
2) Port wine
This drink, also referred to as Vinho do Porto, was introduced to Goa by the Portuguese invaders in the 1600s. This was the initial wine made in India, and it was genuine in every way.
It’s traditionally offered as a dessert wine, and it’s noted for its lyrical sweetness. Drink this when enjoying a dinner date under the moonlight while listening to the waves.
3) Kings Beer
Because it is only made and marketed in Goa, this beer is only accessible there. This is a maize-based beer with a smoky malt aroma and no sour taste. It pairs well enough with fresh fish.
It can be enjoyed while partying, watching a great film, or sitting comfortably on the seashore watching the sunset.
Amrut is India’s only unique malt whiskey, created from Himalayan grain that has been hand-picked. It is stacked with spicy, citrusy sweet and toffee overtones, and is interpreted as “nectar of life.” If you are in Goa then this is a must try.
5) Greater Than by Nao Spirits
Greater Than, an Indian gin that has been around for a long time is also quite famous. It’s a London Dry, and it’s one of the finest alcoholic beverages in Goa history, giving a perfect setting for the state’s finest bartenders to demonstrate their talents – but it’s just as amazing with such a basic floral gin.
