Owner description: 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.

Great place to taste Cambodian rhum. Every Thursday the distillery opens for a great night of cocktails and dancing. The other days, you can have a taste of their local spirit in the shop just in front.
Don't miss out the incredible Kampot Pepper Rhum...

The Thursday night at Samai bar is must do in Phnom Penh! It is a very chillout place with Rhum barrels all around, good music and good vibes.
Try the Passionate Distiller cocktail, it is my favourite! And the Samai Rhum with Kampot pepper is also a unique experience...

Very nice place, with beautiful alembics and good cocktails made with their own rhum.
Possibility of having good mini-burgers in front on Thursday night!

Great place to hangout and meet new people, went on a Thursday night for the live music and tried a couple of their speciality cocktails, highly recommend if you enjoy good rum. They also had some fun limited edition bottles for sale with labels designed by local artist.

A must do for any rum lover, the concept and Samai rums are really surprising and their cocktails are very good! I'd recommend to taste their 21'point and/or their Kampot pepper cocktails which are brilliant.

If you are really a rum enthusiast as I am, you can even have a tour of the distillery by the owners and get to know more on their processes and used ingredients.
