Maui-based Ocean Vodka is reporting strong visitor traffic to its new solar-powered home on the slopes of Haleakalā, since opening doors to its new organic farm and distillery in April 2013.

There have been more than 15,000 visitors to the facility in just the first eight months of operation, according to information released today in a newsletter published by the Maui Visitors Bureau.

The business is located on 80 acres of land in Kula, where it promotes organic farming, conservation and sustainability in production of its spirits.
