Be sure to sign up and schedule the rum tasting! The 45 minute presentation tasting was the most fun I had the entire day. I'll definitely be back just for that...

What a great time, from the Rum tasting to the train. Highly recommend. Janey in the tasting room was a blast for the adults, feeding the pigs,donkeys and cows was fun for the whole family.

We visited the Koloa Rum Company today for the first time. Jayne was working the tasting room and she is amazing. She made the experience feel like a little party. Everything was delicious but the favorites that we tasted were the coconut rum and the coffee rum.

Went with some friends to the rum tasting. The tasting is free and they do a great job of explaining the rum distilling process and providing recipe ideas. The tastings change through out the week so you may get something different each day. We had the traditional gold and spiced rum but we also got to try the chocolate rum…which came home with me. It was so good. We found that many bars throughout Kauai and Oahu use the Koloa rum. Was fun to try something that is specifically distilled on the island

Delicious (free!) tastes of 4-5 of their rums, which at our tasting included a simple mai tai that far surpassed the one we had at a resort. We bought some to bring home.

Make this your first stop when you get to Kauai so you can stock up on their wonderful rum for cocktails during your stay. We enjoyed a wonderful rum tasting with Randy in the Koloa Rum Company tasting room. He was very knowledgeable and gave us some great cocktail recipe suggestions. Make sure to go early in the day to sign up for a tasting as the tastings do fill up and you don't want to miss this great experience!

We had a fun rum tasting experience four times while we were there. Rumpress Jayne was outstanding! She is so friendly, humorous, and has a lot on energy which made our experience memorable. The guy who works Wednesdays, Roger, I think his name is, was good, however, I found it odd that Roger WAS DRINKING the rum with us. Can he do that while doing the presentation? Wonder if anyone else noticed. Anyways, we will definitely be back and we have Jayne to thank for help making our vacation one we will never forget. Tell her Kimo and Millie sent you.

Rum tasting was great, train ride not so much. We enjoyed our bartender and the cocoa rum was excellent. Tiny could give way more information about what is growing. Instead of what they don’t have anymore. Or at least have signs we could read. Feeding farm animals is ok, we can do that anytime at home. Might be better to see what a real farm environment is like than they come to greet you.
