Ko Hana Rum Distillers + Aquaponics Tour and Tasting

November 5, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Unique, behind-the-scenes Slow Food tour of Kō Hana Rum Distillers and Aquaponics Farm

Join Slow Food Oʻahu for a special, private tour with Kō Hana Distillers. In addition to the standard distillery tour, which will take us to the sugarcane garden, barrel house, and rum distillery, co-founder Jason Brand will show us around their neighboring aquaponics farm.

Kō Hana Hawaiian Agricole Rum is meticulously crafted from farm to bottle. Every varietal of heirloom sugarcane has a story and flavor profile all its own – and we’ll have an opportunity to try sugarcane juice from a few of the varietals grown there. Learn about the distillation process, from fermentation to aging, and gain insights into the rich history and traditions behind rum production.

You’ll also delve into the world of aquaponics, a sustainable farming technique that combines aquaculture and hydroponics. Discover how fish and plants work together in a symbiotic relationship, creating a self-sustaining ecosystem.

We’ll finish at the tasting bar with their classic rum flight to compare four different rum expressions side by side, as well as try their chocolate and barrel aged honey. 

Don’t miss out on this unique experience – whether you’re a rum enthusiast or simply curious about sustainable farming, join us for a delicious gathering with the Slow Food community!

RSVP by Monday, October 30. Questions? Please reach out to monica.lee@slowfoodoahu.org.
