Phraya is a luxuriously-presented rum from Thailand, distilled in column stills and aged in charred oak barrels in warehouses sat over river-mouth lagoons. The cool water of the lagoon helps slow down the maturation in Thailand’s hot climate, and Phraya’s rum is bottled at between seven and 12 years of age.

Phraya is made at Sangsom distillery, which was established in 1977 and is one of the oldest distilleries in Thailand. It has made rum for many years, using sugarcane from farms in its local province of Nakhon Pathom.
Phraya is an old Thai word signifying a high rank that was only bestowed on those who had done outstanding service for their king and country.
