High quantities of this wine can be found in the tropical regions of the world, where people live sustainably along with coconut trees.
2. Palm Vinegar
Palm vinegar is derived from the coconut wine, which is harvested from a coconut tree by slicing the surface of the tree, deep enough for it to bleed its sap. The sap will be harvested in gallons per tree per day. The fermentation of the wine is what gives the palm vinegar or as the coconut vinegar its sour taste. The vinegar is not poisonous and is used in cooking and as a condiment for the common household of the tropics.
It takes a few months for the wine to fully ferment and become purely sour without the hint of its previous sweetness. The fully fermented wine will taste sour with a strong smell when it was first harvested.

The structure of the wood mostly consists of long strands of thin wood which can pierce even the toughest leather.
