Maui Rum

Made in a tiny craft distillery on the Hawaiian island of Maui, this is raw, bold rum with what has become a quintessentially Hawaiian rum taste of chocolate, coffee and rich flavors and the character of a black strap spirit. It’s the only rum actually made in Maui, using local Maui molasses. While the Dark Rum is definitely sippable, it’s best as a floater or in a Mai Tai. And Haleakala Distillers makes a number of other rums, including a furious overproof variety.
