Best of the Maldives: Tepache – Amilla

Amilla - tepache 2

Tropical fruit is a classic ingredient to any Maldives visit – papaya, mango, pineapple. The creative F&B folks use these in a variety of food and beverage treats. Pineapple is of course one of the staples of our favourite Maldives treat – the Puerto Rican pina colada. Amilla Maldives offers another Latin American pineapple beverage – tepache – homemade on the island. Tepache is a fermented Mexican beverage made from the peel and the rind of pineapples and sweetened either with piloncillo or brown sugar. The process takes up to 9 months and uses every part of the pineapple. Tepache can be enjoyed on its own (see above) or in a cocktail like their Thai Lime cocktail made from Ginger-Infused Vodka, Lime, Lemongrass Chili Bitters, Tepache.
