Welcome to the Maui Made Blog! I’ll be reviewing Made on Maui products, including art, clothes, jewelry, crafts, food and beauty products. I’ll also share news on events, such as today’s exciting Grand Opening Celebration for Ocean Vodka‘s new distillery today in Kula. The new distillery brings all of Ocean Vodka’s operation under one roof :
For more than six years, the Smith Family has worked diligently on bringing Ocean Vodka from Maui to the international marketplace. The new upgraded facility provides Ocean Vodka control of all supply and production, with farming, distillation, manufacturing, marketing and sales consolidated for the first time since the brand’s inception. It also solidifies Ocean Vodka’s growing presence in the marketplace, supporting a ten-fold increase in business as well as new opportunities to expand production into rums, whiskies and unique, naturally infused spirits, while providing additional jobs for the local Maui community.
To follow the Maui Made blog, you can sign up to get an email of new posts, or you can follow along on Facebook (click for direct link), if you already get too much email! There will likely be more shares and quick posts on Facebook anyway. Eventually, there will also be a more formal e-newsletter, directed to Hawaii-based and national media, to get some much needed exposure to all these incredible Maui artists, designers, and Vodka producers (ok, the vodka producers seem to have no problem getting press) and more information on how to receive that e-newsletter will be posted here on this blog.
