Kauai is the natural home for the Koloa Rum Company. Sugar cane came to Hawaii by ancient Polynesian voyagers in their migration from the South Pacific. Commercial sugar production operations in Hawaii was first established in the town of Koloa in 1835. The initial harvest in 1837 produced two tons of raw sugar, and talking story with old timers reveals that rum production began around this time as well.
The legacy of the sugar and rum in Hawaii lives on today through Koloa Rum. Our award-winning rums are distilled in a vintage copper-pot still, using only the finest local ingredients. Hawaiian cane sugar, pure mountain rainwater and much Aloha come together to produce single-batch rums with remarkably rich flavors and smoothness that capture the essence of the Garden Isle. Koloa Rum Company was founded to create world-class Hawaiian Rum. We are the first and only licensed distillery on the island of Kauai, where sugarcane production has been a traditional way of life. Our first batch of Premium Hawaiian Rum was distilled and bottled in September 2009, which coincided with the opening of our Tasting Room and Company Store at Kilohana Plantation in Lihue. Come, taste the history and Aloha spirit of Koloa Rum today!
Koloa Rum Company’s vision is to be a multifaceted Kauai-based manufacturer that is focused on the development and sale of superior value-added products from a wide variety of locally sourced agricultural ingredients. Koloa Rum Company fully promotes sound and sustainable agricultural practices and believes that the eventual success of its products will provide meaningful support and diversity to the local agricultural industry and serve to stimulate employment, increase cultivated acreage and preserve open space.
