An authentic Heritage Spirit of Eastern Thanalan, Lichyard Libations Nopales Moonshine is a potent hooch that has a slippery, syrupy mouthfeel and a wicked "Sting of 1000 Needles" on the backend, traditionally enjoyed by aldgoat herders who wish to forget they're aldgoat herders.This regional favorite is made from a mash bill of locally sourced Prickly Pear Pads & Millioncorn, fermented and twice-distilled, then set beneath the sands for three moons in charred acacia barrels. We are proud to feature our trademark here in most of our house cocktails.Coming soon...

Your Friendly Local SaBartenders

Cactuar Cantina is a joint business venture started up by Ruckus Fiddlesticks & Pakeke Pake. Their fast-forged friendship was formed earlier this spring, when Ruckus became a “regular-regular” of the Desert’s Refuge and invited Pakeke to attend his lectures at Honesis Institute on poetry and Lalafellin linguistics. Since then, they’ve become loyally mutual patrons, oft seen at each other’s workplaces and known to barhop Eorzean venues as a dynamic duo. Upon acquiring land in the Goblet, it seemed a sensible stroke of fate to join forces and welcome friends old and yet unfound to a laid-back, shared place to brush the sand off their spurs and catch the latest word on the Ul’dahn cobbles.

Ruckus Fiddlesticks is an East Thanalan native, born to mixed Dunes and Plainsfolk heritage. Affable and laughable, most who find themselves caught up in the whirlwind of his chatter find his nature unforgettably friend-shaped. Prior to the Calamity, his folks ran a popular caravan stop out at the Golden Bazaar, famous for turning the local roadside pests into tasty tacos. Adventuring for several years to scratch that wanderer’s itch, Ruckus has discovered that despite many malms traveled, he is a hometown boy at heart, and has since dedicated himself to revitalizing bits of the bazaar culinary culture lost to its dwindling populace. He took up distilling as a passion project, promising to restore pride in regional homebrewed spirits, after seeing hooch of inferior quality reduced to being called ‘Cactus Piss’. His newly trademarked nopales moonshine brand, Lichyard Libations LLC, has been growing steadily as he spreads its local legend far and wide. On the side, he also runs a smoothie brunch spot and comedy club out of his Funny Flat in the Sultana’s Breath.

Pakeke Pake is a boyish woman in her thirties from Thanalan who grew up across the country, moving from region to region as the years went past. She loves her country so much she hates it and grew up during a period of political upheaval, some ten years before the Calamity, which may or may not have inspired rebellious behavior which definitely does not correlate to a criminal record. These days, she trades crystals with the Eorzean tribes on behalf of the Ashcrown Consortium, runs her own bar known as Desert's Refuge, and undertakes weaving leves from time to time for extra income. In her spare time, she's occasionally worked as an adult literacy teacher in the slums of Ul'dah.Jun Szeto drew art of us! Isn't it cute?
