Sheraton Maui has it 'Made' for beer, wine and vodka fans
The Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa is making it even more attractive for fans of that island’s craft brewing, distilling and wine-making scenes with a new promotion available now through Dec. 21.
The Maui Made package partners with Maui Brewing Co., MauiWine and Hawaii Sea Spirits Organic Farm & Distillery to provide guests with discounted tours of each facility. For $314 per night (three-night minimum stay required), the Sheraton Maui provides two adults with deluxe accommodations, a “beverage-centric welcome amenity” incorporating products from the hotel’s featured partners and discounted facility tours.
At Maui Brewing’s Kihei Tasting Room, 605 Lipoa Pkwy., that means a $3 savings off the $15 regular price. Tours are offered daily at noon, 12:30, 1:15, 2, 2:30 and 3:15 p.m. Along with the discount, Maui Made guests will receive a token for a complimentary beer and souvenir glass; a $25 food and beverage voucher to Maui Brewing’s Kahana brewpub is also included.
MauiWine’s King’s Visit tour — which the company’s website describes as “an exclusive look at grape growing and wine-making” and “an intimate experience” — includes a tasting of Ulupalakua Vineyards’ estate wines in a building that used to be used as a jail in the 19th century plus a few small bites as palate cleansers. One hour in length and generally available only on Wednesdays and Thursdays, the tour normally costs $50; Maui Made guests pay $40. MauiWine is at 14815 Piilani Hwy. in Kula.
And it’s all about sustainability at Maui Sea Spirits, producers of Ocean Organic Vodka. Maui Made guests save 25 percent off the $25 regular price for the tour, which includes lunch and promotes the company’s message of acting responsibly by use of organic farming principles and distilling their vodka in the most eco-friendly manner possible. Guests will also receive a souvenir Ocean Vodka shot glass to take home; tours are offered every half-hour from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily at the farm, located at 4051 Omaopio Rd. in Kula.
“The Maui Made package will give guests an insider’s view of our island’s growing beverage culture,” said Sheraton Maui general manager Tetsuji Yamazaki in a release. “We strive to offer guests genuine experiences that are distinctive to … Maui.”
