Definition

Fenny or Feni is a strong smelling Goan liquor made from either coconut or the juice of the cashew fruit. The popular brands of fenny are 'Cashyo' , 'Reals' (pronounced as Reaals), and 'Big Boss'. Goa has registered for a geographical indicator that would allow it to claim the sole right to term drink created in the region as fenny or 'Goan Cashew Feni'.

Fenny is classified as a 'country liquor', and therefore not sold outside the State of Goa in India.
