Date: October 17
Location: Panaji

India's first alcohol museum has opened in Goa.

The museum has hundreds of artefacts linked to feni, including large, traditional glass vats in which the local cashew-based alcohol was stored centuries ago.

"The objective behind starting the museum was to make the world aware of Goa's rich heritage, especially the story of feni, the strong local drink," says Kudchadkar.
