Enjoyed our visit!

We enjoyed our rum-tasting visit as well as our visit to the Plantation. Nice to learn a little bit about the making of rum as well as all the samples. Very enjoyable!

I went twice to grab gift times to take home. The friendly staff made great recommendations. My only regret was that I didn't have time to do the rum tasting! Next time, I'm leaving the family at home and taking the girlfriends for a visit and rum tasting!

The Koloa Rum Company is in the Kilohana Plantation area in Lihue. It's a beautiful little place and has a gorgeous rum tasting room with FREE tastings every half-hour. The rum is delicious even though it's more expensive than some other rums (it's all made with Kauai sugar cane). The "rum slinger" in charge of the tasting was very friendly... More

A high spot of our trip to Kauai.... Koloa Rum Company- It is on property with Gaylord's Luau. What fun and great spirits. Our hostess was Jayne and she is Great. Went to great lengths to make us welcome. Included us each personally (memorized all our first names) in the presentation. And bonus, the rum is delicious. A must to... More

We stopped here after having lunch at the Kilohana Plantation next door. You sign up for the rum tasting in the gift shop and they call you when its time to start. The tasting is conducted in a separate room and the girl who did our tasting was fun, enthusiastic and informative. You taste 4 different rums and make a... More

There is a quaint building about 10 min from the airport. The building is packed with all the different verities of Rum that Koloa Rum Company distills, along with some Hawaiian flair. There is a small Rum Tasting sign up sheet next to the check out. This is where you can get your free Rum Tasting, there is no tour.... More

First of all, this is not a tour, but a tasting room, for those of you who thought you were going out to the cane fields and a distillery. We had a fine tasting of 4 rums. This rum is higher priced than something from Costco, as it is made on the island. Yes, everyone no matter your age, must... More
