Nermel Arhi

filed under:

Nermel Arhi is a traditional vodka made from fermented yak milk from the Arkhangai aimag. Nermel Arhi is a favorite drink of the people in the city and is an expected gift from anyone who travels to the countryside. It has a taste that can be compared to Saki. Nermel Arhi (also called "airag") is one of the premium dairy products of the yak herders. The heated leather strap at the top of the still is used for the treatment of back and kidney pain. Immediately after removal from the still, the strap is wrapped around the waist to provide heat treatments to the lower back region.
