I was born here in Goa, Making cocktails is one of my hobby.
Fenny has always been a speciality of Goa, since it origins here! but having fenny at the right place and in a Goan style is mandatory.
I hope to have a chance to share this experience with you, and to take you off the beaten track!
I am passionate about organising this experience, since I have studied this profession which allows me to teach travellers where our typical cashew fenny comes from.
The fresh season begins from March 2020

Saeesh is a very young and pleasing personality, he took a good care of us and explained the background of the Traditional fenny and cocktails preparation. He took us to an island (not far from the city though), it was quick drive and I tasted different fenny drinks and enjoyed the conversation.

This was an amazing experience! Saeesh was a perfect host, he has created such a wonderful experience that bounds locals and travellers like never before! We really had a great time at Divar island trying out cashew fenny, and some flavours of it. The best part was the location, which was very blissful and adds a charm to the experience. Thanks saeesh!! We will visit again..

Awesome experience! Saeesh was a great host for the evening. He explained to us about fenny and some flavours which was a very unique concept. The location is very peaceful, with chill weather and greenery all around. We really enjoyed those peaceful hours sitting under the tree & sipping our drinks. This is really a ''Goan'' kinda thing which is a must if in Goa. Thank you Saeesh! cheers👍

This was an amazing tour. Saeesh was a great host. Explained to us the way of preparations of fenny and urak. Also explained the different cocktails. We were 5 of us and we enjoyed this tour. Post the explanation we were made to taste different alcohols. We were also served some chips and saaesh went an extra step ahead to serve us some chicken (which was finger licking good) and some Goan pao... Loved the overall tour.
