Thai Rum Distillery

Magic Alambic Rum Distillery is the only one of its kind in the whole of Thailand. The enterprise was an idea of a couple who saw the abundance of sugarcanes, which then had not been put to any profitable use, and also the idleness of their days inspired this notion. The rum brewed at the distillery is carefully produced and bottled with absolute perfection. The locals and tourists find Magic Alambic Rum Distillery to their liking.

Little did they know that their voyage would come to an end with them perished at sea and so they did. In their eagerness to let the bride's parents know of their intentions, they turned into rocks.
