Mekhong


History

Mekhong is Thailand’s national spirit and named after the mighty Mekhong River, which flows along its border. First introduced in 1941, it is the first and most famous spirit in Thailand.

Nowadays Mekhong is a source of pride for the Thai people and has come to symbolise the friendly welcome for which Thailand is world renowned.

Mekhong is Thailand's first domestically produced branded golden spirit. Launched in 1941, it quickly became the most popular brand in Thailand. This was helped by a dispute with the French concerning the border with Laos along the Mekong River which gives the brand its name.

Despite being known as a whisky, Mekhong is in fact much closer to a rum. The distilled spirit is made from 95% sugar cane/molasses and 5% rice. This distilled spirit is then blended with a secret recipe of indigenous herbs and spices to produce its distinctive aroma and taste.

Mekhong is distilled, blended and bottled at the Bangyikhan Distillery on the outskirts of Bangkok.
