Boukha bottle

Boukha (Tunisian Arabic: بوخة‎) is a distilled beverage produced from figs. It originated in Tunisia, where most of it is still produced. Its name means 'alcohol vapor' in Judeo-Tunisian Arabic dialect. 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 many cocktails and for fruit salad.
