We decided to come here after having plans cancelled due to the rain. The woman who conducts the tasting (completely free) is wonderful and should be a stand up comedian! The pours are small but aside from that I can't complain. Definitely pick up a bottle of the coconut rum ($34). This is worth a visit!

Excellent. It was very informative and useful. Tasty samples. We wish that they were selling the fudge sauce. I loved the dark rum and rum cakes.

Would a beautiful plantation. The rum tasting is fabulous! We bought some of the coconut rum and it is so much better than the Mailibu rum we were using. I think they only do the tasting, which is complimentary, once a day so check the schedule with them.

Luau was fun but held in a covered area and our corner had no breeze. Unfortunately, we were in an area that the sun hit so much hotter than other tables. The round tables near the stage had the best view and shade. Prefer luaus on the beach as much cooler. They had vendors on the lawn who had unique... More

Don't get me we wrong, the rum tasting was good. Held every 1/2 hour. We received historical information about Kauwi, the distillery, and the business. Of course we visited the shop, but because we were on the island for the day, we could only purchase small bottles (we don't have/want any check in bags back to Oahu). The tasting room... More

We are annual travelers to Kauai, thanks to our timeshare. This year time got away from us and I missed the rum tasting! I just found out I really missed out as there is a new coffee rum. On the bright side, a local liquor store carries your products so I can check there for it. And for those looking... More

The rum tasting room is 100% free and a blast. There are sign-ups for up to 16 people from 10-2 most days (review the website) and it is better than the pay tours at other sites. The rum is very tasty, our guide was hilarious, and they give you quite a bit. Also, get some farm made salted caramel truffles... More
