    It was so nice to learn the history of the rum before drinking it. I suggest staying a while because the bar is so cute! The rum itself is sooo nice, drinking it straight was so easy  more »

    Actually, we did manage to remain reasonably civilised. It's a small distillery but the brief tour does give you a good insight into making rum and it explains why Chalong Rum does taste different to ...  more »

    “Handcrafted from start to finish! ” Enjoyed our quick detour to try something different in Phuket. Got an extremely personal & informative tour, came here on a Wednesday & it was a relaxed atmosphere with no crowds. But above all else... The RUM was excellent mate! W.

    If you love and appreciate a good glass of spirits, you will love your experience here. The staff are friendly, the atmosphere is just lovely and absolutely relaxing, and their 30 min tour will deepen your appreciation and knowledge about spirits. For 300 bahts, you get the 30 min tour, a mojito made with their chalong bay rum, and a rum tasting after the tour. It was definitely worth the trip out to the area, and was the perfect spot to pick up souvenirs for my fellow drinkers.

    We did the cocktail making course here which was loads of fun and included the 3 (strong!) cocktails. Definitely do not drive here! The distillery tour was good to get some background on how the rum is made

    Just wow. Best rum ever. Must do Phuket experience. Rum was tested, mojitos were drunk, tapas were eaten, friends were made. If you are in Phuket it's a must do visit. I have already "sold" this place to five other couple in the hotel just after visiting it. They just tick all the boxes - the staff is amazing, their rum is great and the atmosphere is magical. It's just not what you expect from Phuket - it's just so polished in presentation, with just the right dishes to compliment the drinks, with the perfect table games (dominoes and janga - because why not?), all set in a lovely sugar cane field. I wish I could find a single fault with both the place and the experience just to make it more realistic but I just can't. If you are in Phuket - visit it. Immediately.

    What a surprise! In the middle of no-where, you would not expect this Oasis. Rum cocktails for every taste. Well prepared, and friendly staff. Quiet and relaxing.
