Fenny or Feni is a Goan liquor made from either coconut or the juice of the cashew apple. Feni is classified as a 'country liquor', and therefore not sold outside the State of Goa in India. In recent years Cashew Feni government registration ensuring that only specialty alcoholic produced in Goa can bear the name.
In the traditional method of making cashew feni, the cashew apples are crushed and formed into a cake that is tied with string. This is placed in a stone basin with an outlet for the juice, called a coimbi, and a heavy boulder is placed on top. The juice expressed is known as Neero, which is sometimes used medicinally as a laxative. The Neero is collected in a large earthen pot called a Kodem, which is buried in the ground and left to ferment for several days. The resulting alcoholic juice is then distilled up to three times to produce feni which can be up to 45% alcohol (90 proof).
Unfortunately fenny can only be found in the popular Indian tourist state of Goa. If you find yourself seeking a drink on the beaches of Goa; make it a "cashew feni and Limca"
