What Makes It Special
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, peppers and alcoholic jams. You can come for a "workshopping" including a free tasting, visit of the workshop and some shopping every day from 8am to 8pm. The Workshop is open daily from 8am to 8pm. After, we are available for free tasting and for retail sale at our stalls at the Made in Cambodia Market (King's Road) every day from 12pm to 10pm.
