Alcohol Spotlight: Cazulo Premium Feni

 

Cazulo Premium Feni is distilled with a true sense of the place and runs a connection to the people who grow the main ingredients-the cashew and the coconut. There are two expressions of Feni; Cashew Feni and Coconut Feni. Each involves a delicate process of small batch pot-still distillation that is fundamentally very similar, yet the taste of each Feni is radically different. The small batch distillation of Feni has a fundamental effect on its final character; still retaining some of the delicate aromatics, congeners and flavour elements of the juice from which it was produced. As a thumb rule, the aroma is indicative of a carefully crafted feni; a harmoniously balanced orchestra of mysterious richness and spice. Each Feni may be clear and colourless, but the secret to the perfect Feni lies in the quality of the initial ingredients - the very land, water and air from where they were created.

Today Feni is also a synonym for Goa's Identity, and is an integral part of the Goan people's culture, like champagne to the French and tequila to the Mexicans. The time has come for Feni to be considered as Goa's Heritage drink. And so, fusing more than 400 years of tradition, with a relentless pursuit for innovation, Cazulo is truly the Goa's finest portfolio of Premium Feni.

Cazulo Premium Coconut Feni

Cazulo Premium Coconut Feni builds on South Goa's storied history of Feni production, staging a long awaited return of this precious exotic spirit.

Under the watchful gaze of the master distiller the hand harvested sweet Coconut toddy is coaxed into its more spirited form through precise small-batch pot still distillation. Allowed to ferment by only encouraging the use of naturally occurring wild tropical yeasts, there is a complex aromatic evolution achieved that ensures this Cazulo Premium Coconut Feni is expressive of its exceptional artisanal quality, traditional values and Goan heritage. We designed the volume and decor to be as educational as they are intimate, inviting the you to share a moment of conviviality. With subtle elegant touches of embossing, the use of the vibrant traditional Velip tribe colours and the local botanical inspired motif border, our die-cut paper labels and stoppered bottles further strengthen the notion of premium craftsmanship.

The bottle silhouette is directly inspired from a traditional Feni bottle and the fluid aesthetic of traditional henna patterns has been incorporated to make the logotype, the Cazulo, a highly stylized Firefly radiating a warming glow; further demonstrating the depth of the product. The classic packaging makes one nostalgic of a by-gone era, when Feni went from being the most popular drink in the land to almost total obsolescence.

With every label applied by hand, individually numbered and signed, each Cazulo Premium Feni bottle is a one-of-a-kind artefact designed to be treasured long after its contents are gone.

Cazulo Premium Cashew Feni

Cazulo Premium Cashew Feni is an old-style Feni, following in the time honoured traditions that made Feni the 'Classical Drink of Goa'.

Double distilled from the freshly stomped juice, maintains the bright fruity flavours, and stimulating natural bouquet of its main ingredient- the Cashew. Local cashew apple varieties, high in tannins and acids, produce flavours that have a mysterious richness unlike you would have never tasted before. Using exclusively hand-picked tree ripened cashew apples and encouraging the use of wild tropical yeasts for a slow natural fermentation, we add nothing to the Cazulo Premium Cashew Feni which isn't present naturally in the Cashew apple - no concentrate, no artificial yeast and definitely no artificial flavourers. Mellowed for a year in antique glass carboys- garafaon's, we revive a traditional process, to allow Cazulo Premium Feni's own character to appear to the fullest.
