Meet one local guy Mr. Karya, as he very friendly introduce his village on our resting point and giving us extra information about the production village of Balinese Wine spirit called Arak. In Bali Arak is very famous as local spirit or drinking alcohol and also very important to use as special offers on ritual Hindu religious ceremony.
The village we whent visited called Banjar Telun Wayah. Most of the villagers has a traditional arak production as main industry on this village. The process making arak it selve is kind of need more patient and high risk of result on little drop alcohol from a tiny hole of pipe. A traditional way of distillation will be successfully get good quality of Arak if the fire attending looking after the fire very well, and to get a liquid of Arak the local farmer or arak makers will get the liquid material called tuak from coconut tree. Mostly the local farmer of Arak maker will get the “Tuak” liquid from coconut tree trunk every morning and do fermentation with their special receipe mixing to the tree trunk before it get stored for fermentation for 3 days. And after fermentation the Tuak or tree trunk fermented will get to distillation process with special control of fire wood by an expert Arak maker to avoid it burn.
