Palm Wine

Is there any palm wine in America? There are several companies in Ghana and Nigeria that bottle and export the stuff, does anyone know of any American importers?

    Someone does indeed import the stuff into the US, as I've seen it for sale in south Florida. But damned if I know who. Sorry.

      I haven't ever seen it. If you did get your hands on a bottle, it'd likely be pretty nasty (in my opinion). All the palm wine I've had via bottle (I lived in Nigeria for a year) has had a very strong fermented taste. Perhaps a trip to W. Africa is needed to taste the delicious fresh palm wine they have!

        I haven't seen palm wine but I've seen wine at the Palm.
