Located in the Kilohana Plantation, this rum company is collecting awards from around the world. Their tasting room holds about 20 people and the 'rum-tender' carefully explains the difference of light to dark rums. You carefully build your own Mai Tai on the spot.

They have a nice tasting room which provides free tastings so it's worth checking out. A really nice gift store with prices that are just slightly higher than others. Despite the awards they have won, I didn't really like the rum. It's probably the best we had of the Hawaiian brand rums, but for the price I'd get an imported bottle like Zaya that is way smoother.

Cute store located in the Kilohana plantation estate. They do a rum tasting which will surly entice you to buy a bottle or two! The rum makes a great Mai Tai and I bought a cute bracelet in the gift store too!

This is a short outing that must be included in your vacation! The store is nice, and has some good gifts to take home, but the rum tasting is where it is at. I'm not a huge fan of their Mai Tai mix, but their dark rum might be favorite. Also, be sure to grab one of the rum cakes...they are delicious.

This is a must do. Our twice Kauai yearly vacations always include a stop at Koloa Rum. They will ship drink mixes, but the rum you have to send yourself...ask for a bubble wrap rum bag..makes packing much easier for only a few dollars more. Try the tasting room. Great selection of salts, sugars and jams as well as small bamboo items. Love IT!
