Two lovely people run this little business and made us very welcome when we dropped by on our tour of the island. I am not much of a sprit drinker but even I enjoyed there many varied types of drink they distill. All there ingredients are organicly grown and all the waste from the process is recycled

We walked from our bike shop in town to this great little distillery- it only took us about 20 minute and was a lovely walk- however I suggest driving.

Great craft schnapps in a variety of flavours and the owner/craftsman is as knowledgable as could be.
Highly recommended.

I stumbled upon the Phangan Distillery by accident and couldn't have been happier! The couple who run the place are warm and informative. The tour is great and the end product--which is all locally sourced--is incredibly smooth. Try one of their signature mojitos--made with all natural ingredients and much nicer than what you get at the typical Phangan resort.

If you are in Phangan , don't miss a chance to buy, taste a Phangan Spirit, which is a really great, clean spirit made from banana, orange, lemon, mango. You can drink a lot of this spirit and you won't have a hangover next day. The owners are really lovely and helpful. So I recommend for everybody who would like to taste a good spirit.

It's a recently opened spirit distillery run by super-friendly and very knowledgable people. They brought over a traditional distillery method from Hungary and produce very high quality/organic spirits (palinka) made of local tropical fruits in very exciting combinations. They use local ingredients and only of the best quality (spiced up with their passion :o) ) to make their unique flavours without harmful chemicals - which is nice for a change after the dodgy and obscure thai drinks. Forget about hangover, this is almost like a remedy and surely won't make you sick the next day. :o)
It's worth calling before you visit (especially if you're with a group) so the owners can make sure they are around to personally welcome you. They take you on a tour to explain you the procedure and you can then taste each flavour - all for free (remember a big smile and spreading the word always pays for it).
You can also buy small or large bottles to treat yourself or as a present/souvenir. You may think that you can get drinks for cheaper - but definitely not as good as this is.
It's a tiny place and won't take up much of your time but it's well worth a visit.
So get your act together and just go! :o)
