Chacha fountain to be launched in Batumi before September

25.07.2012 (Hvino News) Construction of so-called "Chacha Tower Fountain" in Georgia’s Batumi will be concluded in September.  Spanish and Georgian architects designed the fountain for tourists. It will have chacha, a strong Georgian drink  sometimes defined as grape brandy or grappa, pouring instead of water once a week.

"Once a week, for 10 to 15 minutes, chacha will flow from this fountain instead of water. Tourists will have an opportunity to taste the traditional drink," Mayor of Batumi Robert Chkheidze told Georgian television. Alcohol manufacturers would be able to advertise their drinks for locals and tourists.

Dispensing alcohol will not be the only function of the minaret-like tower, to be completed this year. The 25-meter-tall structure will include an observation desk, pools (with no liquor though), a clock and a tourist information center. It will have a spiral ladder, and a gold-plated dome. The project is worth 810,000 lari. Construction company "Alazani" is developing the project.
