Cottage Industry Alcohol to be Regulated

The Bali parliament has established the Special Committee of Alcoholic Beverages which will explore ways to regulate and promote small scale alcoholic beverage production on the island.

There are 375 arak production centers in the Karangasem regency alone. The committee would try to preserve traditional and local knowledge in making arak. The production of arak was passed along from generation to generation, yet they don’t have any official permission to sell it. This legislation is very important in Bali because the island is a world tourist destination and because the consumption of imported alcoholic beverages, especially for hotels and restaurants, is very high.
