I love this place. Every time in Kauai, we stop for the tasting and shopping. They make some of the best rum! We always take some home and the tasting is an event by itself. So entertaining and tasty, yum.

A bit of a wait, but well worth it and you have time to shop! The coffee rum is delicious! You get to sample 4 kinds plus a dessert.

Lots of fun tasting all the rum flavors at their bar. Also nice restaurant and shopping on the grounds. Didn't do the rail ride.

Brief rum tasting was free and generous. I think the guide had participated in a few too many toasts by the time our 6:30 tasting occurred. The guide was friendly and fun but not super knowledgeable beyon$ some canned facts.

They sell the bubble wrap bottle covers so you can put in checked luggage. I wd buy here as more expensive on mainland and I believe you can not even purchase the Kauai Coffee Rum elsewhere.
