Ocean Vodka Distillery, Botanical Garden & Lavender Farm Tour w/lunch – Travel with a style and comfort in our luxury executive Mercedes Benz S-Class sedan or Mercedes Benz Sprinter van (max. 14 people) with our highly trained, professional chauffeurs and let us be part of your special day!

First, we take you to the Ocean Vodka Distillery and Farm. On this visit, you learn about how the vodka is made from the sugar cane by using mineral water and other fascinating facts including tasting the vodka at the end of the tour. Areas covered in this tour are: Sustainable farming practices with its abundant fields of sugar cane; Green manufacturing processes in its 6,000 square foot solar-powered warehouse and bottling center; Organic spirits production using 60-foot column still distillation; and local history of sugar cane farming with species identification. The state-of-the-art Ocean Vodka Organic Farm and Distillery 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. The tour includes a sampling with take-home souvenir OCEAN Organic Vodka shot glass for those 21 and over.

    It was just me and my husband, without the kids, our first time in Hawaii. We didn’t want to drive around and didn’t know where to go. Stardust Hawaii company was the best thing what could happen to us. They offered a luxury car with a driver/guide and were able to show us some of the most beautiful places in Maui without the hassle of driving. Not that only we were able to see the ocean vodka distillery, the goat farm and the lavender farm, we were also able to taste some really delicious foods and learn many interesting facts about Maui and the culture. Our guide was a real professional with great knowledge and a sense of humor. We already know we will come back next year with our kids and are planning to hire Stardust Hawaii again, but this time we want to go on their Hana adventure.

    We were staying at the Grand Wailea in Maui. We wanted to go on a road trip but not on a big bus. We were surprised the resort didn’t offer it any other way but on a shuttle with many other people. I went on the website and found Save on Maui website and their Mercedes ride. We booked a tour with them to go to the ocean vodka distillery, the dairy goat farm and the lavender farm in upcountry. We all had a great time. The ride was smooth, we had plenty of drinks, had some amazing meal at the lavender farm, and saw many interesting and beautiful places in Maui. We purchase photos from this tour on a USB card and we often look at them to remind us of how great time we had. Did I mention that our guide Tom was great?
