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.

It's worth checking out as lots to see in south of the island. As most things in Koh Samui blink and you will have passed it. So keep an eye open. The distillery wasn't in production at the moment and limited flavors but stunning surroundings. Being from Scotland we have a few distillerys but this was good. Great sample and... More

While looking at the freebie map of Samui, we saw the advertisement for the distillery and decided to try it out. On arrival we were greeted by the Belgian manager who's flemish languae abilities are far better than he wanted to admit, and who's also a very charming host. Both rums, the standard and the orange one were tasty, and... More

We went here to eat the sunday brunch and try some of the rums. When we got there at 11 o' clock, the owner informed us that the brunch didn't start till 1 o' clock. As there wasn't very much to do at the destillery it self, we settled for trying out the rum. Two of the flavours were unfortunately... More
