Brewing the Iloco Basi

The painstaking process of making the traditional Iloco basi includes boiling the sugarcane sap for at least two hours before placing the liquid into clay pots or tapayan for a three-month fermentation process. Basi-making is one of the booming small-scale industries in the Ilocos region such as this one located in Baruyan, Bangui, Ilocos Norte. Basi is now widely being commercially promoted.
