  • Good location. We ate very well in a pleasant setting. Rum goes perfectly with the cocktails Mojito, thai may... they are excellent. You can buy it on the spot. Sunday lunch on reservation, open buffet. Great price. I recommend this place.

  • From a tourist’s point of view, this is basically a restaurant that has a distillery attached to it. The distillery aspect is somewhat disappointing. You can a see the vats through a window but you are not allowed into the room. There is no guide to ask questions. It’s a self guide tour with some information plaques. By chance they were crushing the sugar cane while we were there so we got to see that but in essence the whole distillery “tour” took three minutes. Then you go to the restaurant. The owner was quite pleasant. We were offered a tasting of the pure rum and also some locally made syrup to mix into it as well. It was nice but nothing special. Cost 60B. If you don’t want food then that’s where the whole experience ends. Total 15min. They had a bbq on at the time we were there so you can pay to eat or pay to have additional drinks to extend your stay there but we decided to leave at that point.
  • We were referred here by the lonely planet guide and really wish we weren't. Came in low season and was told the distillery was closed for a month. Not much to see anyways, just a small one room factory. After the self-guided "tour" we came to the restaurant for a tasting. Again, nothing special about this either. It costs 60baht for a single shot. Ok rum but nothing worth raving about.
  • This wasn't much of a distillery but a nice restaurant with rum specialties. The distillery wasn't open when we went for the Sunday brunch and you only got the choice of the original rum in a shot or specialty drink. Neat restaurant and the host didn't really give us any information on the rum itself except to take our orders. The food however was good and there was a good brunch selection.
  • I found out about this place on Triposo guide, and judging by the reviews here people build a lot of expectation based on that or similar description. And that's inaccurate! The place is great, staff is friendly, food and drinks are worth to try. No, there's no free samples. Don't expect a tour, it's a distillery with a bar/restaurant. You should go there, I will certainly come back!
  • The place itself wasn't that magical. I asked the hostes if we could try the rum and she told me we could order shots which I find kind a weird. We just wanted to try the rum before buying it. Also we were expecting a range of flavors but sadly they only had the original. Anyways I bought 3 botles since I kinda enjoyed the taste.
