When we visited Maui, we were fortunate to visit and tour Ocean Vodka. In addition to being impressed with the delicious product, family, marketing and mission, we were thrilled the product  was as good as we heard it was. Since then, we’ve been getting many of  their recipes and these holiday recipes were perfect for the upcoming season.

If you ever have the opportunity to visit the Ocean Vodka facility, we’d encourage you to do so. In addition to sampling the product, learning about this philanthropic company who is producing organic products, helping native Hawaiians, growing by innovative concepts, and offers great activities. It’s more than a tour, it’s a destination for the day.

About Ocean Vodka

Long inspired by the ocean paradise of Hawaii, Ocean Vodka is handcrafted using deep ocean mineral-rich water sourced from a depth of 3,000 feet off the Kona Coast of the Island of Hawaii.  The trace minerals, including potassium, magnesium and calcium, help create a distinct and pleasurable flavor profile that is unlike any other vodka.  Ocean Vodka has been the exclusive vodka on Hawaiian Airlines since 2007, and is the number one selling spirit made in Hawaii.  Originally launched on Maui in 2006, Ocean Vodka is the creation of the Smith Family, owners of Ocean Vodka. Situated on a breathtaking 80-acres in Kula on the slopes of Mount Haleakala, the Ocean Vodka Organic Farm and Distillery captures panoramic views of both the north and south shores of Maui.  It is easily reached from Maui’s international Kahului Airport as well as the island’s world-famous resorts.

Ocean Vodka’s Mission Statement

The mission of Ocean Vodka is to create a superior organic, value-added agricultural product from Hawaii that supports the local economy, competes globally based on quality and raises awareness for ocean conservation.

We are eco-conscious producers and our devotion to the preservation of our planet compels us to utilize only the safest, most sustainable production methods available, from seed to finished spirit.

Inspired by our love and respect for the ocean, Ocean Vodka supports organizations charged with oceanic conservation. Since we produced our first bottle of Ocean Vodka in 2006, we have strived to give back and help to protect those ever-so-delicate oceanic eco-systems that so deeply influence our lives. We welcome those dedicated to conserving ocean resources to help us increase awareness about oceanic causes, and are always open to discussing support and partnerships with like-minded efforts.
