Description

Travel to a Sombai workshop hidden in Siem Reap. Discover the colourful infusion process used to add distinctive flavour to this famous Cambodian drink. Admire the hand-painted bottle designs, sample the full range of flavours, and enjoy convenient roundtrip transport from your hotel.

Get picked up from your hotel in Siem Reap and arrive at the Sombai workshop, a traditional Khmer house made of wood. Remove your shoes at the entrance, and climb up to the infusion room, lined with over 100 glass jars containing different types of local fruits, herbs, and spices. The infusion process draws out the natural colour of the ingredients, capturing the essence of mango, pineapple, coconut, lemongrass, green tea, cinnamon, and countless others.

Learn about the history of the distinctive liqueur, and how it was originally derived from medicinal rice wine. Admire the intricate, hand-painted bottles, each created by young Cambodian artists. After touring the workshop, sit down for a tasting session, working from savoury to spicy, and then finally to sweet. Sip water to cleanse your palate, and snack on banana crisps, cashew nuts, and flavoured peanuts. At the end of the tour, choose to return to your hotel or get dropped off in town.

An unique experience on the making of local liquor. They use rice wine as the base & play with fruits or spices for taste & fragrance. The visit c/w liquer tasting as well, we also tried the alcoholic jam. Definitely worth to visit. Their staff is very friendly too.

It was really cool to see how everything is made and hear about all the little details that make Sombai special. The tasting included quite a few flavors and some jams. Everything tasted delicious!
