Goa Cashew Feni: In the traditional method of making cashew feni, only tree ripened cashew apples that have fallen are picked and taken for the crush. The juice produced through this process is known as neero, and is refreshing to drink.
Cashew feni is distilled employing the traditional pot, which is still practiced.Cashew feni is a triple distilled spirit.
The first distillate is known as urrack, about 15% alcohol (30 proof). Urrack is mixed with neero in a proportion determined by the distiller, and redistilled to give a spirit called "cazulo" or "cajulo" (40-42% abv). Cazulo or Cajulo is again distilled with urrack to give a high strength spirit called feni (45% abv). Note that cazulo is generally sold as "feni", as the spirit is considered too strong of an alcoholic beverage for consumption. All cashew feni now available is double distilled.
