Fact about Thai Whiskey.
Thai Whiskey, is a liquor that is popular with both Thais and travellers alike. Tourists in Thailand are likely to owe a few hangovers to the brown liquor commonly purchased from a 7-11. Despite being known in Thailand as “Thai Whiskey”, it is actually a spiced rum. That is, the primary ingredient is molasses, whereas whiskey is a product of distilling alcohol made from grains. The two brands that backpackers will most often find at the bottom of their bucket are Mekhong and Sangsom.
Mekhong is Thailand’s first domestically produced branded golden spirit. Launched in 1941, it quickly became the most popular brand in Thailand. While Mekhong is branded as a whiskey, Mekhong is much closer to a rum, however unlike other Thai-whiskeys it does contain some rice. Its flavor and aroma are both spicy and sweet with hints of ginger, honey, toffee, vanilla, floral, herbs and citrus. The distinctive aroma and taste are created when the distilled molasses and rice spirit is blended with a secret recipe of indigenous herbs and spices. The final product is 35% ABV.
