Professionally Distilled
Rice Wines and Spirits

Professionally distilled since 1968 in Sanur, Bali
The Arak and Brem Rice Wines of Dewi Sri offera true taste of traditional Bali.


The Dewi Sri company is a professional producer of local Balinese rice wines and rice spirits. Founded in 1968, the Dewi Sri company produces the traditional Arak and Brem Bali wines, made from fermented rice. Found at religious ceremonies and on local tables, the rice wines and spirits of Dewi Sri are a symbol of quality and skilled winemaking in the traditional way. Ideal for mixing cocktails and famous for being the base of the Arak Attack cocktail, these wines are the true taste of traditional Bali.

In 1968, I.B. Gotama a native of Sanur and descendant of a prominent family, decided to embark on the professional making of the traditional drinks Brem and Arak. Too many home distilleries producing dangerous products put lives at risk and I.B. Gotama sets up the first professional and legal distillery in Bali. For over 40 years now, the Dewi Sri company makes fermented rice wines and spirits in its factory located in the heart of Sanur, where the family still lives.

The name of the company is in honour of the goddess of rice, fertility, successful harvest, and family prosperity and harmony, celebrated in Bali Hinduism as the amalgamation of Lakshmi, Devi and Shri.

Mr. I.B. Gotama’s sons have since taken over the traditional wine factory and have also the Hatten Wines winery, which today is served all around Bali and Indonesia.

Distilling Spirits inBali
The process of making rice wine and alcohol

At Dewi Sri, we have a long commitment to quality and already 45 years of experience distilling spirits. Starting with locally grown white and red rice, we gently cook the mixtures to a perfect temperature before fermenting them in order to release the sugars and create the alcohol. Distilling in our Spanish copper still allows Dewi Sri to benefit from the properties of copper: this metal reduces the undesirable sulfur compounds produced naturally during distillation, to allow us to have a much smoother and silky spirit.

Distillation is a method of separating mixtures based on differences in volatility of components in a boiling liquid mixture. Distillation is a unit operation, or a physical separation process, and not a chemical reaction. (Ref.: Wikipedia)

On the Arak bottles and packaging we chose a mysterious dragon called Naga Basuki; a legendary figure who is known for helping Hanuman to move gunung mandaragiri hence allowing the monkey-god to get the tirta amerta (the holy water of eternal life) to awake Hanuman’s tribe from poisoning.
