HAWAIIAN RUM AGRICOLE
Named by Wine Enthusiast as a “Top 100 Spirit”, our signature rum is one of the rarest rums in the world. We make it from the fresh juice of estate-grown Hawaiian heirloom sugarcane (kō) on our farm in Kohala, Hawai‘i. The sugarcane juice is fermented using a special yeast and distilled in a handmade, copper pot still to 60-74% ABV. This slow, careful process makes delicious and flavorful rum that showcases the magnificence of the kō.
An exceptionally flavorful rum perfect for sipping neat or in world-class cocktails.
Less than 5% of rum is made as an Agricole: rum made from fresh sugarcane juice.
TASTING NOTES: green bananas, fuji apple, cherries, Japanese plum, starfruit, lemongrass, and an Everlasting Gobstopper finish
