Officials from Koloa Rum on Kauai are expanding the reach of their products to at least four new states thanks to a new distribution agreement with statewide beverage distributor Young’s Market Company.

"Young’s Market Co. is an outstanding company that has consistently delivered exceptional value and service to Koloa Rum in California and Arizona over the past several years," Koloa Rum Co. President and CEO Bob Gunter said in a statement on Wednesday. "Expanding our partnership with Young’s in Hawaii and throughout their 10-state distribution footprint is a natural evolution in the ongoing growth and development of our brand." in Pacific Business News 

The new reach comes at a time when Koloa Rum officials are making gradual strides to expand the production of their products. Last summer, the County of Kauai Planning Commission approved plans for Koloa Rum Co. to construct a 45,000-square-foot production facility, 4,500-square-foot tasting room, 30 ,000-square-foot interactive garden, and other related structures on 16.7 acres of now vacant land in Koloa across the street from Anne Knudsen Park.
