  • If someone had told me I would be drinking rum at 11:00 o’clock in the morning I would never have believed them. I think the Hawaiian sun makes you do all kinds of crazy things. This crazy thing turne...  more »
  • Beautiful area where they also put on Luau's. There are 11 other shops in the complex, train rides, and amazing views! Was in the area and the Wife wanted some Dark Rum to make Mai Tai's later so we s...  more »
  • Drove by and felt like a drink and were not disappointed. You can sign up by the half hour for tastings in the charming and small tasting room. Usually, there's up to a 60 min wait so I recommend to c...  more »

  • Unfortunately I couldn’t taste the rum as I was 24 weeks pregnant, but my husband said that they were the best rums he has ever tasted. The lady that hosted the tasting was so friendly and personable it made the whole experience so nice even though I wasn’t drinking. Highly recommend stopping here if you’re visiting Kauai!! We bought a Coffee rum and Spiced rum; can’t wait to try them in March after the baby is born!
  • Fun little store, and free rum tasting. They rotate the rums available for tasting each day. When we went, they had: Spiced rum - The taste was described to be like butterscotch, and it felt really sugary and sweet. I was surprisingly not a fan of this one. Coconut rum - i don't enjoy coconut flavored anything, and this rum was no exception. Dark rum - This was the best rum we tried - lots of flavors, great sipping rum. Coffee rum - I was the most excited to try this. It tasted almost chocolatey, it was served to us chilled. It had a bit of a syrupy taste, it is something I would only do shots of, I personally don't think it would be a very good sipping rum. Overall, would highly recommend stopping by, especially because it is free. The gift shop had some neat little things too. Don't actually buy the rum there, it is cheaper at Costco. (By a margin of $6-7 dollars I believe)
  • Fun place to visit in Kauai. Part of the Gaylord plantation. Husband loves the free rum tastings. Suggest they carry larger sizes in their tops for women. Can always find men's larger sizes but haven't found the same choices for women.
  • Free run tasting every 30 min, hours vary by day so check first. Filled up fast mid-day Friday as they only do 16 ppl at a time. Run is delicious, ended up buying 3 bottles. Very cool local company
  • Visit was fun. Wish it lasted longer. Our hostess was very informative. Rum was delicious! Left me wanting more.
