Phu Quoc Island is famous for its fresh seafood and exotic beaches. And Sim wine was created to enhance marvelousness of these two.
Sim is a small tropical fruit which has a dark purple color when it is ripe. Sim is found in some Southeast Asia countries but sim wine is only found in Phu Quoc Island of Vietnam, part is because sim in this Pearl Island has a very special taste comparing to sim from anywhere else, part is because of the local people’s creation.

Sim in Phu Quoc Island has a strange taste of sweetness and bitterness. When sim forests are dyed with the dark purple color, people pick the ripe sim to extract a heat-relieving and healthy drink in the tropical summer. After being washed, the fruits are put into huge jars, marinated with sugar in the tightly close jars in 40 – 45 days until the essence of the fruits blends with sugar to be an extraordinarily tasty extrication. Next, people pour in the Vietnamese traditional rice wine to the extract, then after some more days, the supreme sim wine is ready to serve. This wine is quite light, just about 11 to 12 degree and has a featured sweet and bitter taste of the sim fruit. It is very favored not only by Phu Quoc Islanders and Vietnamese, but also by foreign visitors to the island.
