This venue is VRV (Venue Report Verified), we have personally visited this venue.
Oh magical Maui, how we love your warm tropical climate, balmy breezes, and recognizable smell that hits us every time we disembark off of the plane (if you missed it, also checkout our Reporters on the Road: Maui Field Notes) We always love our reporter field trips to check out venue spaces, but doing it on an island with ocean views from every vantage point is a major bonus.
The natural and pristine beauty of Maui is so spectacular, that we love when venues recognize the importance of being eco-friendly. We were extra excited to uncover a new eco-venue on the island, Ocean Vodka Organic Farm and Distillery, situated on a breathtaking 80-acres on the slopes of Mount Haleakalā. The farm boasts a 22,000 square foot grassy space called "The Point, perfect for the best pau hana sunset parties in Maui! Not only do we love the sustainable ethos of the farm, but they also produce organic vodka made from sugar cane! (Disclaimer: Vodka is the alcohol of choice for many of our reporters.) This state-of-the-art Ocean Vodka Organic Farm and Distillery utilizes solar panels to power 100% of the operations of the distillery and the sugar cane is organically farmed on the rich, volcanic soils to create the vodka. SIP SIP HOORAY!
The Experience: Driving down the winding dirt road you can see the picturesque farm perched on a hill at the end of the road. Roaming chickens and roosters seal the deal as they weave in and out of the sugar cane fields and passion fruit vines. We were greeted by a smiling Shonna, who is a local that was born and raised on the island. She emitted an immediate warmth and had so much pride about the vodka operations, venue space and the family who runs the farm. She excitedly told us that the family has planted every single sugar cane and built the farm by hand!
HOW WILL MY GUESTS GET HERE?: It is easily reached from Maui’s international Kahului Airport as well as the island’s world-famous resorts.
