Tapping the palm trees for their sweet frothing wine is one of the commercial activities engaged in by the locals. The palm wine is drunk either fresh or distilled into a local gin called akpeteshie.
The best time to see the locals do their palm wine tapping is early in the morning or late in the afternoon. For the early morning visits, you are required to book this tour at the tourist reception office, at least a day in advance.
After a short walk through the farms, you will arrive at the place where they tap the wine and distil the gin. The guide will explain how all this is done. If you want to buy some gin, bring an empty bottle with you.
The length of this tour depends on the location of the available tapping place at the time of your visit. 30 Ghc (entrance fee) and a tip for the guide that will accompany you.
