Owner description: The Ocean Vodka Organic Farm and Distillery highlights the company's commitment to socially and environmentally conscious business practices, utilizing solar panels to power 100% of the operations and sustainably farming and harvesting their organic sugar cane. Situated on a breathtaking 80-acres on the slopes of Mount Haleakala, the home of Ocean Vodka captures panoramic views of both the north and south shores of Maui. It is easily reached from Maui's international Kahului Airport as well as the island's world-famous resorts.The mission of Ocean Vodka is to create a superior organic, value-added agricultural product from Hawaii that supports the local economy, competes globally based on quality and raises awareness for the conservation of the ocean. Ocean Vodka is 100% Certified USDA Organic, gluten-free, and the only vodka in the world made from organic sugar cane and deep ocean mineral water. A proprietary column distillation process produces an ultra-clean spirit that is unrivaled in the marketplace. When this pure refined spirit is blended with deep ocean water, Ocean Vodka takes on a unique, mineral-rich flavor found in no other vodka. Tour times at the Ocean Vodka Organic Farm and Distillery are every half hour, starting from 9:30 am with the last tour at 4 pm. Entrance to tours for $10 a person also includes a sampling for all those 21 and over. Tours educate guests on the importance of organic farming for the conservation of land and ocean, green manufacturing and the production of spirits. Tours include a guided walk-through of the martini garden, organic farm, cane fields, craft distillery and gift shop.

“Not a scheduled stop...but sooooo glad we found Ocean Vodka.”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

This was not a scheduled stop. Stopped by on a whim and certainly glad that we did. Made it just in time for the next guided tour. The story of how Ocean Vodka is created and the tour of the grounds is wonderful. The outdoor tasting room was not quite ready, as this is an evolving property, but the hospitality of the employees and the overall experience was great none-the-less. Looking forward to cocktails made with their Vodka.

“If you are in UpCountry Maui you must Go!”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

The view, the tour, the organic sugar cane, the story of how a family decided over drinks to start a " spirited" journey! Tasting will start soon but we bought a bottle and it is the smoothest vodka! It is right down the road from Surfing Goat Dairy....do not pass it by!

“Ocean Vodka, Maui 2013”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

this vodka is deeelicious and doesn't smell or taste like vodka, it's a smooth taste of freshness when it's chilled. my fave!! the tours are nice and informative, bring lunch in a basket and have a picnic after your tour, hopefully next time they will sell the goat cheese from the farm next door and crackers for a great picnic. I'm a fan of their distilled spirits!! looking for it at Costco or BevMo in the bay area.

“Take the tour! Buy the vodka!”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

The distillery recently opened for tours. This is a family owned distillery and while they've been around a while, the tours are new. Who knew? I'm driving up Omaopio wondering how they make their vodka... as I'm driving thru cane fields. Duh! Sugar cane. No sugar in this vodka though thanks to the yeast devouring all the sugar! You'll get to tour the cane field, taste the two different types of cane they use, look at some of the other canes they grow (including some heirlooms), and then learn about the distilling and bottling processs.

Love the story... all Hawai'ian from the organic sugar cane to the "deep ocean mineral water" from off Kona that they use to blend with the distilled vodka. They cut only the canes they need to make a batch of vodka... the don't do the commercial "drought and burn" method. Love it! Totally a renewable resource! And they practically bottle by hand! (In a room smaller than my living room!).

So how many times have you taken a winery tour vs how many times have you taken a tour of a VODKA DISTILLERY? Head upcountry, and visit Ocean Vodka. You can tell the joy these people have in making a go at this -- when they didn't know what they were doing in the beginning. Their vodka is lovely (made a drink with Wow Wow's Lilikoi Lemonade later that week and seriously good stuff!).

They don't yet have a tasting license but you can purchase chilled vodka and walk out to a point overlooking west and south Maui and have your own tasting.

Go. Taste, Enjoy. And buy some to take home if necessary. (Although you can now buy Ocean Vodka on the mainland, too!) Also ask for Ocean Vodka on your flight home if you are flying Hawaiian Airlines -- it's the only vodka they serve! :)
