If vodka is your drink of choice, a trip to Hawaii should be in your plans! Ocean Organic Vodka is an award-winning spirit made at the Hawaii Sea Spirits Organic Farm and Distillery right here on Maui. It’s a certified 100% USDA organic product, and it’s the only vodka in the world made from organic sugar cane and deep ocean mineral water. Created using eco-friendly practices and responsible farming techniques, Ocean is the best selling vodka in all of Hawaii! Here’s how you can take an Ocean Vodka tour to see how it’s made.
What You’ll See on an Ocean Vodka Tour
Situated on the slopes of Haleakala Volcano, the Hawaii Sea Spirits Organic Farm and Distillery is a sight to behold. This state-of-the-art facility is powered completely by solar panels and features a 6,000-square foot warehouse and bottling center, an organic farm, a product sampling courtyard, and a gift shop. There’s even a one-of-a-kind martini garden that highlights fresh, local ingredients like Kula lavender, passion fruit, pineapple, and strawberries. Your tour guide will lead you through the property and point out important features along the way.
On an Ocean Vodka tour, guests can learn about the importance of eco-friendly production. Visit the sugar cane fields to see how sugar cane grows in the rich, volcanic soils without synthetic pesticides or herbicides. Or check out the bottling room where employees bottle the vodka by hand. You may even run into Bill Scott, Ocean’s Master Distiller who’s constantly working on new spirit lines. After your tour ends, wander out to The Point and enjoy a spectacular 180-degree vista of the north and south shores of Maui.
Visitors 21 and over are welcome to sample Ocean Organic Vodka and experience its unique, distinct flavor. This flavor comes from ocean mineral water 3,000 feet below Mauna Kea, the tallest mountain the world. Because it’s developed from the purest ingredients, Ocean Vodka is an excellent choice for martinis and cocktails. It’s also great straight-up or on the rocks. Don’t forget to take home your shot glass as a souvenir!
