Our second stop
is at 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 a 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.
Our last but not least stop
is the Lavender farm, where you go on a self-guided walking tour at your own pace. This place offers stunning scenery, panoramic out-of-this-world landscapes, birds-eye views of the Maui central valley. You will learn about the flora and fauna that exist nowhere else in the world. The farm offers the first and only Lavender Lifestyle experience on Maui and is home to around 55,000 lavender plants across 20 different varieties. And although lavender blooms naturally in summer, the farm grows 9 varieties that bloom all year round. A wide variety of other plants are in abundance on the farm including olive trees, hydrangea, protea, succulents, and many more. No visit to Ali‘i Kula Lavender would be complete without a visit to the gift shop. There are some really beautiful lavender-themed gifts – if you’re looking for unique items or a special souvenir to take home with you, this is the place to find it.
