Founded in 2010
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 Distilling Company is the passion project of the LeVecke family who has over half a century of industry experience. 15 years ago 2 of the LeVecke brothers decided to start their own authentic micro-distillery on the island of Maui.

A like-minded master distiller Mark Nigbur, uses unconventional distilling techniques to produce a high-quality Hali’imaile product. Today Mark works along side 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.
