India’s first alcohol museum opens in Goa
Goa, India — India’s first museum dedicated to alcohol has opened its doors to ‘spirited’ enthusiasts in Goa.
The museum ‘All About Alcohol’ is set up by local businessman, Nandan Kudchadkar, in Candolim village of North Goa. It houses hundreds of artefacts linked to feni, including large, traditional glass vats in which the local cashew-based alcohol was stored centuries ago.
Speaking to ANI, Kudchadkar, who is a collector of antiques, said the idea behind the museum was to make the world aware of Goa’s rich heritage, especially the story of feni, the strong local drink.
