Loved learning about Koloa rum and the history of sugar from islands to make rum. Had to buy a couple bottles after tasting because the sugar they bought out from last working mill won’t be used forever in these rums. Cute gift shop and great...More

They sell the bubble wrap bottle covers so you can put in checked luggage. I wd buy here as more expensive on mainland and I believe you can not even purchase the Kauai Coffee Rum elsewhere.
