Syn Absinthe is an organic micro distillery in Otres Village near The Otres Market and across the road from Hacienda guest house.....Sihanoukville, Cambodia. enjoy a tour of the distillery, complimentary absinthe. Learn and see how real absinthe is made. 3 o'clock daily. The unique building is surrounded by water, a tranquil place, yet near to the exciting other goings- on in the village. Upstairs is the relaxing tree house bar. A unique opportunity to experience real absinthe, served with the ritualistic fire style. Also, we are happy to talk about the various myths, history, and secretive style of this most alluring libation. Nothing artificial, with real wormwood. Bottles available to take home so you can share your experience with family and friends

Best absinthe I've ever had, and I had the opportunity to try it over ten years ago. Still the best. The black is my favorite, and it's well worth the tour and a number of drinks. Make sure you have room to take a bottle...More

Despite making email contact with Johann before our visit there were only two backpackers staying here when we eventually found this place. They kindly gave us a quick run down on the distillery but we were unable to have a tasting. A wasted visit!
