Boukha bottle

Boukha (Tunisian Arabic: بوخة) is a distilled beverage produced from figs. It originated in the Tunisian Jewish community, where most of it is still produced.


Its name means 'alcohol vapor' in Judeo-Tunisian Arabic. It is obtained by simple distillation of Mediterranean figs. Its alcohol percentage ranges between 36 and 40 percent.


Boukha can be consumed straight at room temperature or cold,[1] or serve as the basis for cocktails and for fruit salad.
