      <Abstract>Every community acquires its identity from the occupations that are created by the prevailing social structure. In Goa feni distillation is one occupation that supports many families. In fact, it has evolved into a social organization with its own specific characteristics. Palm and cashew feni distillation are a part of the traditional cottage industries of Goa. The term feni is used to refer to two different locally distilled alcoholic drinks. One is distilled from fermented coconut toddy and the other is derived from distilled fermented cashew apple juice. These two drinks are popularly consumed in Goa by many drinkers. The weather conditions need to be ideal for the fermentation of toddy and cashew apple juice. The present study is an attempt at understanding the process involved in toddy collection. It also aims to explain the feni distillation procedure as well as the various uses of feni.</Abstract>
