Palm Wine

palm winePalm wine also named palm toddy or simply toddy, is an alcoholic beverage created from the sap of various species of palm tree such as the palmyra, and coconut palms.

This drink is common in various parts of Asia and Africa.

In India, palm wine  is served as either kallu ot toddy (a sour beverage made from fermented sap, but not as strong as wine). Kallu is usually drunk soon after fermentation by the end of the same day, as it becomes more sour and acidic day by day.

Palm wine has an important role in many ceremonies in Africa. Guests at weddings there, birth celebrations, and funeral wakes are served generous quantities of palm wine.
