Ocean Vodka Distillery and Sugarcane Farm
First, we take you to the Ocean Vodka Distillery and Farm to learn how vodka is made from sugarcane and mineral water. Learn about the fascinating inter-workings of this place, from the local history of sugarcane farming, sustainable farming practices, and the green manufacturing process used to produce this delicious organic vodka. This state-of-the-art facility utilizes solar panels to power 100% of the operations of the distillery and facility. The sugar cane is organically farmed on the rich, volcanic soils without the use of synthetic pesticides or herbicides, and mature sugar cane stalks are hand-harvested for processing. The Martini Garden, a garden designed specifically for martini lovers, highlights fresh, local ingredients such as Kula lavender, local citrus, passion fruit, pineapple, and strawberries. For guests 21 and older, the tour includes a complimentary vodka tasting and take-home souvenir OCEAN Organic Vodka shot glass!

Our next stop is at the Kula Botanical Garden located on the slopes of Haleakala volcanic crater. This site encompasses 8 acres of colorful and unique plants, amazing rock formations, a covered bridge, waterfalls, koi pond, aviary, and new attractions including the carved tiki exhibit. The garden has hundreds of varieties of plants for you to enjoy and photograph. Plants are labeled with their botanical name, common name, and country of origin.
