We love coming here and usually bring all of our visiting friends and relatives to experience the rum tasting. You not only get to taste some great rum and make your own Mai Tai, but you get agin little Hawaiian history lesson. The gift shop is cute with lots of rum (of course), and other local products including gourmet food... More

Arrive on the hour / half hour, for a 15 minute tasting. Taste several small portions of rum / rum cake. Friendly servers. Beautiful grounds to explore while you are waiting.

If you want to get some good rum from Hawaii — spend couple of hours and get Koloa rum company. Rum tasting sessions hold every 30 minutes, so you'll not have wait for long time. Prices and choice are also nice — choice is much more wide and prices are lower than in city shops and duty free. Enter and... More

If you like rum, this was a nice, informative stop. We enjoyed the tasting experience and the story of Koloa Rum. They limit the alcohol intake to 1 oz., spreading it across four types of rum, with the Coconut Rum being our favorite. Their gift shop is diverse with many local items as well as rum and mixers, but it... More

We visited the Koloa Rum tasting room. Tastings are ever half hour, and are free! Be sure to sign in for your tasting once you arrive--spots are limited. Although the tasting was nice and simple, I was expecting to learn more about how the rum is made. Even a video would be nice. This is simply a tasting. The gift... More

My wife is the real rum drinker, so she might have rated the place excellent. I enjoyed the experience. They have a free tasting that you can sign up for. You either make a mini Mai Tai or a Rum Punch depending on the day. You also taste several of their rums. the folks in the store were very nice... More

All the folks at Koloa Rum Company were so friendly. The store, which is next to Gaylord's Restaurant, is quite nice. We signed up for a tasting of Koloa rums next door and met Kale, a most informed employee. We love all the Koloa Rum products, but the Coconut Rum is our favorite. We love to sip it on ice.... More

So glad we went to the rum tasting before we left Kauai. The lady was absolutely fabulous & the Mai tai was the best. Too bad we couldn't buy any to take home since we weren't checking in any luggage. Will definitely go back next time in Kauai.

Koloa Rum is the first stop on the way from the airport to our condo. The rum tasting is very informative and several of their rums are award winning. We always take bottles home with us.
