What would a tropical island like Kauai be without rum? Images of English and American whaler ships entering tiny Keawaloa Bay only steps from our Ocean Suite dance merrily in my head. Native girls and guys swimming out to greet the ship laden with their bounty.
Fast forward to 2013 as I sit on the lanai with a cold glass swirling with color and Kauai’s finest libation, Koloa Rum, the signature drink of the Garden Isle. Watching the Kukuiula Canoe Club stroke past the house, all six paddlers pulling in unison. Effortlessly.
Everyone is welcome to the three day event held on the grounds of Kilohana Plantation House in Lihue. The tasting room will open at 9.30 am on September 26th through the final day of Saturday, September 28th. For additional information see the Koloa Rum website. There will be vendor demonstrations, tastings every half hour and come in wearing your Koloa Rum logo wear and receive a special gift.
Tell us what you think about Koloa Rum. We welcome your thoughts. We look forward to seeing you at the event on Saturday.
