Chalong Bay Rum Distillery
Sold around the globe, Chalong Bay Rum is Thailand’s best-known rum brand. At the Chalong Bay Rum Distillery in Phuket, travelers can go behind-the-scenes to discover how the facility uses centuries-old French distillation techniques to transform freshly pressed sugarcane into smooth white rum. 

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. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Chalong Bay Rum Distillery is a must-see for rum and cocktail aficionados. 
  • The legal drinking age in Thailand is 20 years old.
  • The distillery is wheelchair accessible.

How to Get There
The Chalong Bay Rum Distillery is located on Soi Palai in Chalong Bay, roughly five miles (eight kilometers) southwest of Phuket Town. There are no public transportation options, so it’s best to arrive by private vehicle, taxi, or as part of a guided tour. 

When to Get There
The distillery is open year-round but can get busy during the dry season (November through February), so opt for an early morning visit to avoid the crowds. 

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.
Address: 14/2 Moo 2 Soi Palai 2 Tambon Chalong Amphur Muang, Phuket 83130, Thailand
Hours: Daily, 11am - 10pm. Distillery tours start every hour from 2pm - 6pm.

Good food, rude tourists

Good food and nice drinks. I would recommend two guides (one in the back) as all the rude Italian tourists were taking pictures and videos as soon as the guide left the space. Tour and rum were good.

Great experience, food and hosts. A gem of Phuket! MUST-DO

The visit to Chalong Bay Distillery is MUST-DO activity in Phuket. Food is absolutely delicious and the portions are out of this world! I visited the distillery as part of a Bachelor's party evening and we had a rocking start of the night with cocktails, rum tasting and an awesome meal. At first we were unsure if the Lunch provided with our tour ticket would be enough (and thought we may have to order more food) but no, it was definitely enough and super super tasty! Everyone is super friendly and accommodating (it's Phuket, really) and we learned some interesting facts over the process. Lastly, if you like the rum: BUY IT THERE! I sooooo regret not buying at least one bottle of the cinnamon-flavoured rum, it was delicious and I can't find it anywhere else! (In Europe).

Get beyond Phuket’s beaches to explore the island’s fascinating history on a tour of Phuket Town, Wat Chalong, Phuket Big Buddha, and an organic rum distillery.
