Good gift shop, good Rum to buy. I went with the top bottle $50 bones. The rum drank straight with a pinch of brown sugar. Building and grounds are beautiful.

Free rum tasting - do I need to say more? I will :) it is not just free rum but good rum with no mixers needed! My only wish is that I had a checked bag to carry this stuff home in!

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.
