lambanog

In this photo taken on November 15, 2012, tapper Eugenio Andaya, pours his harvest of coconut sap to be used in a local wine called 'tuba' the raw material for Lambanog in Tayabas, Quezon Province, south of Manila.  With their huge copper vats and open fires, little-known backyard liquor makers have toiled for generations in Philippine coconut farms to distill the country's answer to Russian vodka. Extracted from the sap of the coconut, the "lambanog" was once considered a lowly peasant's drink whose potency they claim puts those of well-known liquors and spirits around the world in the shade.
