Overview

Nestled in the heart of Phnom Penh, we are Samai – Cambodia’s first and only premium rum distillery. We create hand-crafted, premium rums using high-quality, locally grown ingredients with the highest quality. 100% of our raw materials are coming from the Kingdom of Wonder. Only specially selected, high-quality sugar cane grown in Koh Kong Province is used to produce the rich caramel molasses that defines the complex base of our premium rums. Following a process that pays tribute to age-old rum making traditions, our rums are complex and full of character, displaying a flavour profile that reflects the uniqueness of Cambodian terroir. We are producing two handcrafted rum: the Gold Rum and the Kampot Pepper Rum. Every Thursday night from 6pm until 11:30pm, Samai Distillery opens its doors to the public. Our guests can come and discover our production process and experience the distillery, taste our different rums, and our original Samai Cocktails.

Decor and ambiance are amazing, centered around rum barrels and the distillery equipment. Samai has been making rum locally for a few years and they are already doing it right: they actually won a few international accolades for it. They have different rum flavors well...More
