Just did the tour of your distillery. Very small production compared to other brand rums but very informative. Explains the process of making rum and how they make it. Great value with a drink included.

I had the great opportunity to have a personal inspection at Chalong Bay Rum Distillery. I was impressed how efficient the little Distillery is working. No big factory machines and industrialization. Everything is made by hand and the people are dedicated to produce the best Rum possible. Finally I had the chance to try the Rum and I was blown away. The best Rum I have ever had. Tasteful, fruity, rich. If you are in Phuket don't miss the chance and pass by far a tasting. You will never drink any other Rum than Phuket Chalong Bay Rum. It's truly much better than many of the famous names available.

Was there beginning of 2013. Extremely interesting and tasty.
First there are nice French people working on site. They are speaking French , English , Spanish, Thai and to my big surprise very good Russian (!!!) . No problem to communicate.
You will be immersed in the magic world of creation of The Rhum by these passionate people. They will show you old traditional french alambic (distilling machine) from Armagnac region, which was transported from France especially for giving the best taste.
Ask them questions - you will be astonished by hundreds details about their profession.
And of course, what is the Rhum if it is not tasted?! Be ready, they know how to surprise you!
After writing this post I felt a strong desire to prepare one of those exotic drinks and to dive into sweet memories of our trip to Thailand. It seems that I steel have kipping half of a bottle.
