Toddy tapping is a traditional practice in Sri Lanka, especially prevalent in regions like Bentota. It involves the art of extracting sap from coconut palms to produce toddy, a mildly alcoholic beverage. Skilled toddy tappers climb tall coconut trees to collect the sap, which is then fermented to create toddy. This age-old craft not only yields a popular local drink but also serves as a cultural tradition passed down through generations.
