Great upmarket facilities and a lovely open veranda to enjoy a couple of cocktails! Rum with lemon grass, cinnamon and basil. All perfectly mixed with complementing croutons that enhances and emphasises the flavor of the rum! Artisan stuff

So nothing about this is very 'Thai'. You feel like you are in Europe when you are here. That said, it is fun to see the distillery and the rum is good. The group cocktail making sessions are great!

Staff are super friendly, the rum production tour was concise but the staff explain with patience and passion. The tour price include a glass of mojito which was nice, and the rum they produce was great! We brought with us a big bottle back home!

Going in without knowing what to expect and is totally overwhelmed with the hospitality and excellent service. The rum tour and cocktail class takes about 2 hours but you can easily spend a few more hours chilling. Very unique rum. Would totally recommend.More

Good place to get a decent drink rather than the cheapo happy hour rubbish so often served in Phuket. Very casual relaxed atmosphere (great music playlist which I asked for!). Other reviews are right about the tour - it is very brief but is interesting....More

A taxi from there shouldn't cost more than 400-500 one way but if you need them to send you to hotel after, then it depends where your hotel is.
