From my time in Ghana, I remenber that Akpeteshie was distilled from Palm Wine and there was a range of standards of quality and price. I wouldn't say in was a "Gin" although they do make a very good dry gin.

Depends on whether you are talking U.K. or U.S. Gallon. In many cases also distillers will refuse payment for Akpeteshie as it is seen to anger the spirits , often a gift of Akpeteshie will require a reciprocated gift a few days later. Anyway a Gallon U.K. 4.5 litres would cost around appro $7 -$8.
I bought some home and measured the alcohol content it was 64%. Beware this is raw alcohol and contains both heavy. light and medium alcohols hence often people black out whilst drinking it remembering nothing even though they may not appear too drunk. Also the stories of raw alcohol making you blind yup this is the sort of stuff. Personally I love it straight from the still. Bars will often water it down to increase profits. Hope this helps.
