Click to preview Spirits and Libations of Hawaii photo book

Originally the partaking of fermented libations was confined to the priests and chiefs as part of their rituals, a custom that appears to have prevailed in all early civilizations. In later years a fermented sweet potato juice was used by the common folk. Apparently there was not a particular ceremony connected with its use, but the early Hawaiians reserved it for special occasions.
