Alcoholic drinks are the aggregation of beer, wine, spirits, cider/perry and RTDs. And alcohol is a colourless volatile flammable liquid which is produced by the natural fermentation of sugars and is the intoxicating constituent of wine, beer, spirits, and other drinks, and is also used as an industrial solvent and as fuel. That is the best I can do with my little science definition of alcohol (lol). There are plenty of alcoholic drinks in Ghana you can try when you are in Ghana or visiting Ghana.
The most typical Friday night activity in Ghana is to show up, eat, party, open a few beer bottles, and relax. Unless, of course, it is against the teachings of your religion. However, despite the fact that Ghana is home to two major religions (Christian and Muslim), alcohol consumption among Ghanaians is still very high. The consumption of alcohol in Ghana is more like a tradition, it is served at funerals, weddings, and even small family or friend gatherings. This shows how alcohol is much consumed in Ghana despite religions and tribes.
Ghana has an 18-year-old minimum drinking age, and alcohol is permitted there. The nation’s pubs, restaurants, and stores all sell alcohol. Few shops would ask for identification before selling something to you which is something I’m yet to witness ( does anyone find that funny lol ).
In this post, Mrpocu.com will like some of the top alcoholic drinks in Ghana you should try when in Ghana or now visiting. From top beers to wine and traditional alcoholic drinks.
Alcoholic Drinks In Ghana
First created in 1931, Club premium lager has grown to become a true national symbol. Club beer has been Ghana’s top-selling beer for many years, and many Ghanaians (mainly the elderly) still drink it. Arguably it is sold in every alcoholic store, night clubs, bar and pub. It has ingredients including water, maize, hops, and barley malt.
In Ghana, Smirnoff Ice is highly well-liked by the younger generation. The most widely consumed flavour of Smirnoff Ice is the original natural lemon-lime flavour. Other flavours include Smirnoff Ice Double Black and the recently introduced pineapple flavour. In most cases, it is called ladies’ drink as it is much consumed by ladies. Give it a try and share the experience with me in the comment section.
The premium cider beverage Savanna Dry is made in South Africa’s rich Elgin Valley from crushed apples cultivated there. The young people of Ghana love savanna dry. Savanna Dry is also said to be ladies alcoholic drink in Ghana since it is mostly consumed by ladies.
In Ghana and Nigeria, Star Lager is a well-liked lager. Since its creation in June 1946, it has become a well-known beer brand in West Africa. Star beer is the most popular beer in Ghana and is being made today.
The largest beverage company in Ghana is Guinness Ghana Breweries, founded in 1960. Many Ghanaians today drink Guinness, a beverage made with water, vinegar, hops, and other ingredients. According to a University of Wisconsin study, consuming Guinness lowers the incidence of blood clots and heart attacks. It was first sold in pharmacies as my granddaddy always send me to buy one for him at a pharmacy near.
Kasapereko Alomo Bitters
The herbal-based alcoholic beverage Kasapereko Alomo Bitters is not your typical alcoholic beverage. Alomo Bitters, which have their origins in Ghana, are created using extracts from carefully chosen tropical plants that are part of a proprietary recipe. It’s well known for having aphrodisiac qualities.
One of the popular herbal-based alcoholic drinks in Ghana called Adonko bitters is made in Ghana. It is well known for its therapeutic qualities and advantages. The business asserts that it uses unique plants sourced from an African rainforest. Adonko bitters are available in a variety of flavours, and each flavour has its own special components and health advantages.
Baileys Irish Cream
Ghanaians love Bailey’s Irish Cream, especially the women. It is an alcoholic beverage that has cream, cocoa, and Irish whiskey flavourings. Baileys can be found in practically every supermarket in the nation.
Ghana’s national spirit, Akpeteshie, is made by distilling either sugar cane or palm wine. It is referred to as “gógóró” in Nigeria, an Urhobo word, and is often distilled there from the juice of fermented Raffia palm trees. Given its strength, Akpeteshie should only be consumed sparingly.
In Ghana, Gulder beer is a well-liked brew. As a premium, highly flavorful beer that has been extra-matured to international standards, it was first introduced to Ghana in 1970. Premium barley, high-quality hops, and pure water are used in the brewing process of Gulder to provide consumers with a crisp flavour and complete enjoyment.
Heineken is a full-bodied premium lager beer with deep golden colour, a mildly bitter taste and a balanced hop aroma leaving a crisp, clean and refreshing finish. Heineken Lager contains just three natural ingredients. Water, malted barley, and hop extracts. That’s it. Yeast is an important part of the brewing process, but not an ingredient. Heineken’s natural A – Yeast is key to making the Heineken you know and love.
It is one of the best alcoholic drinks in Ghana and the world as well. Heineken is sold anywhere in the country.
