According to our trusted Wiki, TUAK is an alcoholic beverage made of fermented rice, yeast and sugar and drunk in Borneo and East Malaysia. The beverage is a popular drink among the Ibans of Sarawak and is especially server during the Gawai festivals (the rice harvesting festivals in Sarawak). This potent drink is typically drunk daily by the men of the rumah panjang (longhouse in Sarawak) as a wind down after a hard day’s labour. Today, TUAK is enjoyed not just by the men but also by the women, old and young, in cities and in longhouses.
