Experience a gin distillery tour in Cambodia
Your Cambodia adventure starts here
Visit Cambodia’s only gin distillery for a private tour and tasting
WHAT IT'S ABOUT
Cambodia’s capital Phnom Penh is brimming with energy and entrepreneurial ideas – an attitude summed up by the country’s first and only artisan gin distillery. Seekers Spirits is the home of the Mekong Dry Gin, handcrafted with 11 native botanicals, along with a wider portfolio of locally-made liqueurs and cocktails.
The award-winning distillery has become a symbol of next-gen ambition in Cambodia, with a growing team of local bartenders and an events calendar that covers everything from supper clubs with small plates to signature cocktail pairings and all-night raves. Going behind the scenes on this private tour you’ll learn about ingredients grown in a huge on-site botanical garden.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
This private group tour provides an immersive insight into the garden-to-glass techniques behind Cambodia’s groundbreaking gin. You’ll learn about the pivotal role of bold, aromatic Mekong flavours, such as pandan and Thai basil, in the gin-making process, as well as ingredients like rose apples, starfruit or lemongrass found in the distillery’s botanical garden of dreams.
Naturally, no gin tour would be complete without a tasting session (consider it your homework). Cambodia’s leading gin bar delivers big here, with creations that range from the Phnom Penh Sling to the Basil Smash and a G&T that changes colour from blue to pink with the addition of a butterfly-pea garnish.
WHAT OUR COMMUNITY SAYS
“What I love about this gin is that it’s not shy; it’s bursting with full-bodied flavour,” says Tania Unsworth, co-founder of Seekers Spirits. “We use the richness of Cambodian ingredients – including spring water from the Kampot mountains, Battambang green oranges and Asian lime leaves – to transport drinkers to the tropical humid buzz of Phnom Penh and the Mekong”.
“Our private Flash Pack gin tour is all about taking guests backstage at our downtown distillery, with the full VIP treatment,” Tania adds. “You’ll get to see the production process up-close and learn the history behind Cambodia’s first homegrown premium gin. Of course, a full-range tasting is all part of the experience.”
