Tour admission is $10 and includes a sampling with take-home souvenir Ocean Vodka shot glass for those 21 and over. True to Ocean Vodka’s organic and sustainable commitment, the tours are designed to educates guests on the importance of organic farming for the conservation of land and ocean, green manufacturing and the production of spirits.

Launched in 2005, Ocean Vodka is the only spirit in the world distilled from organically farmed sugar cane and ocean mineral water using solar power. Certified USDA Organic and gluten-free, Ocean Vodka uses a proprietary column distillation process to produce an ultra-clean, award-winning spirit. The water is sourced from a depth of 3,000 feet off the Kona Coast of the Big Island, The sugar cane is organically farmed on rich, volcanic soils without the use of synthetic pesticides or herbicides, and mature sugar cane stalks are hand-harvested for processing

Minerals Calcium, magnesium and potassium, which naturally occur in ocean water, give Ocean Vodka a unique, mineral-rich flavor found in no other vodka. These minerals create a pleasant, distinctive taste and enhance flavors when Ocean Vodka is mixed with fresh juices.

A short drive from Maui’s Kahului International Airport, Ocean Vodka is produced about 1,000 feet above the Pacific Ocean, with breathtaking panoramic views of the North and South Shores of Maui, the West Maui Mountains and Mount Haleakala.

“Our farm experience gives people an opportunity to learn about organic farming and sustainable production from a business that is expanding internationally,” says CEO Shay Smith. “Our tours add a special agritourism dimension to the traditional Hawaii vacation. People come to Maui from all over the world and discover the refreshing taste of Ocean Vodka. We are proud to be producing one of the most unique and highest quality vodkas in the world.”

Ocean Vodka has given a portion of proceeds to oceanic preservation and conservation causes, such as Oceana and Surfrider Foundation.

Tours of the Ocean Vodka Farm and Distillery are held daily, every half hour starting at 9:30 a.m. with the last tour running at 4 p.m..; they can be booked online at oceanvodka.com/tour-reservations.
