The brand that is striving to bring Cashew liquor products to the world
KAFI as a brand encompasses all the different regions where Cashew originated. The Cashew tree originated in the northeast of Brazil, and is believed to be domesticated there before the arrival of Portuguese. The Portuguese took the crop to their Colonies throughout the world and introduced it in East Africa, Vietnam and lastly India.
The tree was well known to control soil erosion and ended up becoming a favourite crop across the coastal belt of India established by Portuguese.
These Portuguese colonies fermented the cashew apple and produced several drinks. In Brazil, Chile etc. people made Aguardiente from cashew apple – In Tanzania, Africans made the ever-controversial gonga. However, no country like India, actually perfected the art of making liquor from these cashew apples.
