Hali’imaile Distilling Company DistilleryHali’imaile Distilling Company Distillery

Founded in 2010
Hali'imaile Distilling Company is a Cinderella story of the LeVecke family. The family’s experience in the Spirits industry spans over half a century. Nearly two decades ago two brothers started their original micro-distillery on the island of Maui.

After a long journey to find a like-minded master distiller the brothers met Mark Nigbur, an expert distiller in Colorado. The rest is history. Located in Makawao on the island of Maui, Hali'imaile Distilling is situated on the slopes of Haleakalā. Nestled amongst the pineapple fields, that have been cultivated for over a century. 

Hali'imaile is a craft distillery utilizing local Maui ingredients to create quality spirits. Sustainability, community, 'ohana, and integrity of ingredients and practices, are their brand values, impacting the environment in only positive and nurturing ways.

A like-minded master distiller Mark Nigbur, uses unconventional distilling techniques to produce a high-quality Hali’imaile product. Today Mark works alongside his eldest son Cory who currently manages the day-to-day Distilling operations.

The Hali’imaile Distilling Company lineup includes their award-winning Pau Maui Vodka, Mahina Premium Rum, Paniolo Blended Whiskey and Fid Street Hawaiian Gin.

Mark Nigbur, Master Distiller, and Hali’imaile Distilling Company on the beautiful island of Maui we distill PAU Maui Vodka, Paniolo Whiskey, Fid Street Gin and Sammy Hagar's Beach Bar Rum.

I created the stills, now hold four patents on them what also makes PAU and Fid Street Gin so unique is it's actually distilled from pineapple. It's the only Vodka, Gin in the world distilled from pineapple and it's Maui Gold.

So I also see that they're glass I've never seen that before. That's right, the most efficient stills that I've ever seen. We can get purity 98.5. So the flavor of pineapple really isn't there if its 98.5 percent pure? Not at all, yeah, not at all, no, it's very neutral. Well, it smells great. It smells great, yeah. That's the most important part.
