A uniquely Filipino liquor
that is made from naturally fermented
and distilled coconut sap
and is most closely related to Vodka
. Produced in the southern tagalog
region, its standard preparation (prescribed by the .ph dept of science and technology (DOST
), should yield forty percent alcohol
and thus be 80 proof
Yes the same DOST that handles science
and mathematics curricula
for primary and secondary school children also prescribe the proper method of making intoxicating beverages
Because of its purity and lack of any strong and distinct flavors, aside from a very slight hint of fermented coconut sap, it is very easily flavored with anything you can think of. The most common being raisins which add a pleasant sweetness and takes away the edge.
When in .ph /msg karfung and he will treat you to a shot of this oh so wonderful local concoction.
