Great rum and a fun tasting environment! The leader of the rum tasting, Kaleo (?), is passionate about their products and does a great job. All of our samples were delicious! Girls working in the gift shop were very outgoing and entertaining! Well worth a stop if you're on Kauai!!

We got there early and signed up for the 10:30 am tasting. Our guide talked us thru the history of Koloa Rum, we then tasted their white rum, which we mixed with a kind of fruit juice, and topped with a bit of the dark rum, delicious! I don't normally drink rum, maybe because I've always had bad rum. This... More

This was a fun experience and a great way to taste some different flavors of rum. My favorite was the coconut rum and my husband enjoyed the spice rum. We would definitely visit again!

Stopped in here while we were at the Kauai Plantation. They have an interesting gift shop, but the main draw is the free rum tasting. Worthwhile if you enjoy rum. Enjoyable break on a hot, humid day.

We had a lot of fun here, they offer a limited group visit to the tasting room, the host Janie then memorizes everyone's name. Her energy is abundant and she soon has everyone grinning ear to ear.

This was so much fun. Who would have guessed? I don't normally drink much alcohol so I only indulged in a couple flavors at the tasting. We tasted dark, spicy, coconut, & coffee flavor as well as rum cake. One liked coconut best, one liked dark best, and both liked spicy second. It was fascinating to learn how it's made... More

Safeway club prices are better for their rum and mixes unless you have a coupon with at least 10% off. Souvenirs are the average high price you see at these types of gift shops. The tasting was nice, but there was a waiting list with some people waiting an hour. Photo identification was required and no person under 21 was... More
