We visited Sombai with our tour guide after our evening food tasting of Cambodian street food and it was excellent!
The host was super friendly and he spoke fantastic English. We began the tour with a workshop on how the rice liquor is made which included a very thorough explanation and look at how each flavour is made.
We moved on to the tasting and in total we tried about 11 liquors and 6 alcoholic jams. The liquors ranged from sweet, spicy to dessert type flavours, and the jams followed the same suit. We were also offered homemade banana chips and mango grown at the business which were delicious.
The bottles that Sombai bottle their liquor in are absolutely beautiful and represent Cambodian culture. The bottles are hand painted and so detailed they really are a work of art!
We bought some of the liquor and alcoholic jam to take home to share with our family and friends, as we enjoyed it so much along with an amazingly painted drinking cup.
A must visit if you’re in Siem Reap! More
