Between my guide (who did an excellent job considering english is her third, I think, language after Thai and French), the setting, the tour, the bar and the quality rum produced here, I couldn't have asked for a better afternoon to find the perfect rum for making a mojito!!

Good place to get a decent drink rather than the cheapo happy hour rubbish so often served in Phuket. Very casual relaxed atmosphere (great music playlist which I asked for!). Other reviews are right about the tour - it is very brief but is interesting. Tasting was a good opportunity to try before you buy, and I did indeed buy... More

What a pretty little place to have a rum drink, some bruschetta, and take in the tropical beauty. We came for the distillery tour which was nice, pretty par for the course with most other small batch distillery tours. What really impressed us was the grounds, the food, and the drinks. Even if you didn't take the tour this would... More

We visited with great expectations of this boutique business, coming from Tasmania (Aus) where small Boutique wineries & distillers are world class.. what we found was a magic Rum manufacturer that produces a first class product from ground level, literally. From growing & processing the sugarcane for production to hand placing the labels on bottles, it's a start to finish... More

Visited the distillery well on holiday in Thailand. What an absolute treasure - we arrived outside the scheduled tour times and were welcomed with a lovely cocktail (which was included in the tour) very informative - and a great place to buy some quality rum and accessories Would recommend this to all adults
