  • We decided to go on this tour because we had such a good time at the rum distillery tour on the Grand Cayman Islands and this was so highly rated but this tour was a let down. Pros -Welcome mojito was...  more »
  • Everything is very expensive here and tourists become the cash cows! Don't come here if you've already visited the Caribbean distilleries! Prices will cool you down. Visit: almost € 12 per person... it gives the feel of the site. Ambience theme "everything is good for making money". We do pay the visit Yes, but at this price no. And the best of the best is the price of rum. €17 the 70cl 40 °! Are we really in a distillery or a retailer? Some say that it is a craft distillery... Certainly, but how to justify this price compared to a Caribbean rum from a small distillery at €9 per litre to 55 °? In France, a farm of rumors liter bottle at 55 ° is sold at this price. The saleswoman did not answer me; She was even embarrassed. In short, this worth not to lose time and its baht in this place, unless you want to enrich french who see tourists as cash cows...

  • Highly recommend visiting this place when in Phuket. Beautiful bar area and garden. The 30min tour runs from 2-6pm and includes tasting. House made ice cream is delicious. Rum and raisin and chocolate rum especially. So. Good. The Chalong Bay mojito is to die for, and the range of cocktails is impressive. Bar staff are very friendly and welcoming.
  • Such a great place: friendly staff, cosy setting, french tour by Charles was very clear... and all rums were really tasty! I recommend it!!
  • I had a great experience at this distillery. My companions and I were welcomed quickly upon arrival and explained the different activities available to us. We opted to take the 30 minute tour. With every tour (450Baht) you get a mojito and several tasters. Our guide, Nett, spoke good English and was very pleasant. She took the time to learn our names and was diligent in explaining the details of the distillery process. The property is well kept and it is obvious that quality is the main concern of this award winning distillery. If you are in Phuket, I would recommend taking an hour or two to have a drink and take the tour.
  • Great place! Definitely worth a trip After patong beach yesterday, this was a well needed relaxing trip. Very laid back bar. Great tour and inexpensive menu. Got to meet the owner, and our tour guide Nett was great! Very informative and makes you appreciate the hard work put into the rum.
  • Chalong Bay Rum is definitely one of my favourite rums - and it is so interesting to learn how it is made at the distillery here. The bar area offers a wonderful atmosphere, with greenery and sugar cane to surround. Great music with excellent cocktails - total hidden gem in Chalong area.
