In trying to find pictures for Throwback Thursday, I realized I have a lot of pictures of adult beverages (that is said with pride, by the way!). As such, I’ve decided that rather than share pictures of me with bad 80s hair and glasses that legitimately covered half my face, I could easily share glasses of a much tastier kind. So without further ado, I present to you: Thirsty Thursday!
Please note that any and all complaints will be actively ignored while drinking from my stash of Koloa…
Here we are congregated at the tasting bar as our lovely bartender took us through all the rums that Koloa offered: White, Gold, Spiced, Dark, and Coconut. We all graciously took turns finishing April’s tastes, as she would take a small sip of each for prosperity’s sake and then would slide her glass down to each of us in turn–we couldn’t let delicious rum go to waste!
After running through the line-up, we got a brief lesson on the Mai Tai and Koloa’s version for anyone who wanted one (yes, please!).
Tastings are daily–but there are a limited number of slots per tasting, so the first thing you need to do when you get there (of course you’re going to go–why wouldn’t you?!?) is sign up for a tasting. After that, do take the time to walk around the picturesque grounds and visit the gift shop (just don’t miss your tasting!).
For the store and tasting room hours–not to mention directions, recipes, descriptions of their current rum selections, and their e-gift shop can all be found on their website.
The best part of perusing their website is that I noticed that they’ve added a new rum to their collection since we visited: coffee. Helllllllloooo gorgeous!!!! Could there be a more perfect rum for me?
My only question (because the previous one was rhetorical) is: who wants to go to Kauai?!?
