Much like the Goan food which has earned popularity as very pleasing to the palate, the liquors of Goa have a long tradition of superior quality and taste. The food and liquor are the essential ingredients of the famous Goan appetite for fine dining, joyful drinking and merry making. The Portuguese connection which has left its indelible influences on many aspects of life in Goa has also contributed to the development of skills for making liquor. From the colonial days the alcohol trade and industry has enjoyed a dominant position in the economy of the state and its unique culture. The Goan highlands and coastal areas bear a striking resemblance to some of the famous liquor producing parts of Scotland in their scenic beauty and pristine ambience. The welcoming shores of this small state have enticed some of the major multinational liquor companies to set up their manufacturing bases here. The list includes Seagram (Pernod Ricard) , Bacardi, Mc Dowells & Shaw Wallace ( United Spirits) among others of international repute. Their presence and operations here have brought about further improvements to the liquor industry which has modernized employing the latest in alcohol technology. Various brands of liquor produced here are being exported to many foreign markets, which is testimony to the high standards of the products.
