Overview
More
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.
