We were wondering what to do on a nice Sunday in Thailand and we came across this place. We travelled quite a long way, about 40 mins in a Taxi, but boy was it worth it. They squeezed us in as we were a little late. Its a buffet style dinner and possibly the best I've ever had. All kinds... More

Excellent rum quality. Good service and after this visit you can star to understand more about destination and how to produce the rum.

We have been there with friends. Nice place to take a drink, but salad wasn't good (Ceasar salad, tomatoes are between yellow and red color, chicken is in bread crumbs, a lot of onion are in dressing). Perhaps, we will come back, but only take a drink...

Hi, thank you for coming and for your post. I'm just checked with my boss and our chef cooking and, it's actually in the recipe to breaded the chicken for the caesar Salad. Also, they remember you, and it's happen during an electricity break, so we cannot do our best. For the tomatoes I'm sorry but there are like this... More

Really friendly owners, the place is beautiful. Not too much to see in terms of production but the rum is worth the visit. We only visited a couple of days ago and have nearly finished the large bottle of rum and sugar syrup we bought.

The distillery only had one type of rum when we visited due to low/monsoon season but we still had a good time. The bartender was very friendly and the food was excellent. We ordered the pad thai and curry and enjoyed that just as much as the rum! If you're staying close to the distillery (south side of Koh Samui)... More

Yes they do a fab Sunday buffet lunch but don't tell anyone. It is the best deal on the island and the French owners couldn't be nicer or more welcoming. Our little secret....

As we strolled along the southern side of the island, this distillery popped up on the map. The distillery was not active during our visit (which I believe is not that relevant anyway), however we enjoyed a couple of nice glasses of rum accompanied by a selection of Thai dishes. The quality of the food (clams, fish cakes, etc.) was... More

Been here a few times to buy the rum which is very good but recently decided to have lunch too. I was very shocked as to the fantastic quality of the food which was a bit unexpected as it advertises as a rum distillery with food. You should really promote your restaurant first with the distillery as the add on!!!... More

Since the distillery wasn't in action, we went to see the machines on display, but there was nobody to give a tour of anything... Just some signs. Simple. Took 5 minutes.
