The Basics

Chalong Bay Rum Distillery is the perfect destination for a laid-back morning or afternoon of rum sampling. Opt for a guided tour to learn about the rum-making process, sample rum cocktails at the distillery bar, or take part in a masterclass or cocktail workshop to learn the secrets of cocktail making and whip up favorites including Chalong Bay mojitos, Spicyrinhas, and Piña Coladas. You can also combine a rum-tasting session at Chalong Bay Distillery with a private tour of Phuket Town to see city highlights such as a local cashew factory and scenic viewpoints overlooking the city.

Amazing Experience!

Skip the Line: Chalong Bay Cocktail Workshop Ticket
Out of all the things my friends and I did in Thailand, this experience was one of the best. Our guide, personal bartender as well as all the other employees were so unbelievably kind and funny. I cannot recommend this workshop enough to couples or friends. If you like rum, book this!

Distillery Visit at Chalong Bay Rum
I prefer my rum darker and stronger but it was a pleasant surprise to find a little distraction on a rainy afternoon.

Got there early and had a late lunch before the workshop. Beautiful outdoor setting (expect it to be hot since it is Thailand). The first half hour was a distillery tour followed by a tasting of their 8 rums. Award winning and impressive with what they accomplished in only 6 years. Clearly very proud of their all organic, socially responsible and sustainable work with their local farmers. Cocktail workshop itself was super fun and tasty. Well organized. They give you all the mixers so you get to pour as much or little of anything you want. The tapas are delicious and decent sized. All in, the tour and workshop went from 4pm-7pm.

The Natural Rum of Chalong Bay

Chalong Bay is renowned for its natural rum production—inspired by traditional French-Caribbean methods—and uses pure sugarcane juice instead of the molasses typically used in industrial rum. The distillery is proud of its eco credentials and uses only the finest Thai sugarcane sourced from local farmers, grown without chemical fertilizers, and harvested by hand.
