IMG_1300 copyOcean Vodka Organic Farm and Distillery in Kula is now adding samplings of their organic vodka on site to complement their tour schedule, which has been running daily since its opening in April of 2013.

Effective November 1st, Ocean Vodka samplings will be offered seven days a week after daily tour times in a designated tasting area bordering one of their organic sugar cane fields.  Tour times at the Ocean Vodka Organic Farm and Distillery are 9:30 am, 10:30 am, 11:30 am, 12:30 pm, 1:30 pm, 2:30 pm and 3:30 pm.  Entrance to tours is $10 a person for those 12 years and older, and includes a sampling with take-home souvenir Ocean Vodka shot glass for those 21 and over.

The only 100% solar powered distillery in Hawai’i, 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.  Tours run seven days a week and can be booked through calling 808-877-0009 (toll free 866-776-2326) or visiting oceanvodka.com.

“The ability for our family to offer samples of our award-winning Ocean Vodka truly rounds out our organic farm and craft distillery tour experience,” said Shay Smith, Founder and CEO of Ocean Vodka.  “The unique flavor profile of Ocean Vodka, with its distinctive mineral content, tastes even more delicious on the farm while overlooking the Pacific!”

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.
