*Chacha (pronounced [t͡ʃʼat͡ʃʼa]) is traditionally clear strong liquor, which is sometimes called "vine vodka," "grape vodka," or "Georgian vodka." Chacha is made of grape pomace (grape residue left after making wine). The term chach is used in Georgia to refer to any type of moonshine made of fruits, though it most commonly refers to grape distillate. It may be also produced from non-ripe or non-cultured grapes. Other common fruits used are figs, tangerines, oranges, or mulberries.
Originally only a homebrewed drink of Georgian farmers is also today produced by professional distillers who received international awards for their products.
Many Georgians claim that Chacha has medicinal properties and is suggested as a remedy for a number of ailments including ear blockages and indigestion. Also, chacha is said to cure stomachaches by applying to the abdomen.
