Owner description: Sombai is a sweet home-made liqueur from Siem Reap. Sombai bottles are painted and decorated by hand, making each of them a unique piece and an amazing souvenir. We also have a non-alcoholic range of products under the brand name "Joe's Cuisine" including quality spices, aromatised sea salts and peppers. You can come for a "workshopping" including a free tasting, visit of the workshop and some shopping every day from 9am to 7pm. The Workshop is open daily from 9am to 5pm. After, we are available for free tasting and for retail sale at our stalls: - at the Angkor Night Market (Entrance B) every evening from 5pm to 11pm, - at the Made in Cambodia Market (King's Road) every day from 12pm to 10pm.

“Excellent Rice Wine!!!”
Reviewed 2 June 2013

I cannot tell you how much I enjoy the infused rice wine Sombia produces. I have tried every flavor and each is as good as the last. Everyone will find a flavor they love. Lemon-Lemongrass, Green Tea-Orange, Ginger-Red Chili, Pineapple-Lime, just to name a few, make amazing cocktails.

The hand painted bottles and scarf wrapped caps are amazing and each is unique, making them great gifts for people back home. There are three sizes available, giving you the perfect size for your home or a friend.

If you want the best locally produced rice wine in Siem Reap, you absolutely must try Sombai.

Dear customer,

Always a pleasure to provide our drinks to people who are as passionate as us about Sombai. Indeed, everyone will surely find something that fits his/her tastebud among our 8 flavours which range from more bitter and less sweet (lemon-lemongrass/green tea-orange) to the more dessert kind for the sweet-tooth (coconut-pineapple, our latest flavour). Do come around next time you are in Cambodia as we have a new flavours in the pipeline...

“Sombai: I keep going back for more!”
Reviewed 1 June 2013

I first bought some Sombai spirits to bring back to the US as gifts, based on the beautiful hand-painted bottles and positive comments I had heard around town. The bottles are gorgeous, and people loved them, but we were amazed at how much we loved the product itself - even more than we expected!

There are lots of wonderful flavors to choose from, and you can make delicious cocktails, though we prefer to sip it cold and enjoy it all on its own. I keep discovering new favorite flavors and going back for more.

It's a great choice for gifts or for enjoying yourself, and there are wonderful friendly people who will guide you through a tasting so you can choose your favorite flavors. Don't miss it, whether you live here or you're just passing through Siem Reap!
