We heard about this from our son who visited last year. What a great story and product. The free rum tasting was excellent and shared with pure aloha! Look for a 10% discount off product on the island map that is handed out on Hawaiian Airlines.

There was this tiny little brunette bottle rocket who took us thru the tasting and she was just amazing!!!!! I am so mad that I can't remember her name, maybe it was the rum. It was soon much fun and of course the rum was delicious but she absolutely made the whole thing worth it!!!!

We visited Koloa Rum for a rum tasting. They do tastings every 30 minutes, and the tastings last about 15 minutes. You get tastes of about 5 different rums, and the featured rum changes each day of the week. We went on the day they were sampling the coffee rum, and it was a real treat! Although we didn't buy...

We also liked the spiced and coconut rum. Be sure to check the website for the tasting schedule. We wanted to be sure to taste the coffee rum since... More
