A Vodka made from a unique base, on unique stills, with unique filtration and a sweetheart flavor profile.

How would you like to spend your days on the Hawaiian island of Maui making Vodka from pineapples? Sounds like a dream job to us. Mark Nigbur was distilling in Colorado. In the process, he invented a unique glass still — great for fruit Spirits, bad for grains. The LeVecke Family had been in the distilling business for more than fifty years and wanted to start a micro-distillery in Maui (who wouldn’t). They got together and founded Hali’imale Distilling Company located in "Up-country" Maui at Makawao in the middle of huge pineapple fields.

First, you’ve got to know that Pau Maui Vodka is NOT pineapple flavored Vodka. It is a pure Vodka made from pineapples — there’s a BIG difference. Pineapple tailings are collected from the local processing factories and made into a mash fermented with natural yeasts. Mark’s unique glass stills pass the resulting Spirits through volcanic rock and charcoal filtration on the way out, arriving at 95.5% ABV in one pass. It is then cut to 40% using natural, local spring water. It is a bit sweeter than a grain Vodka with a light, exotic fragrance.


Smartass Corner:
Glass is a perfectly fine material for a still. The main benefit of copper is that it acts as a catalyst during distillation to naturally bind loose sulphur atoms — which taste remarkably bad — that are common in grain-based Spirits. No grain, no sulphur. That’s why glass is fine for pineapple-based Spirits. And it’s better than stainless steal in this case due to the natural acidity of pineapple juice.

The average life of a $50 bill in circulation is 55 months before it is replaced due to wear.
The Hawaiian word hali'i means 'a covering' or 'blanket'. Maile is a native twining shrub with fragrant, shiny leaves.
It looks like potato chips and flavored Vodka are two things where the producers unleash their imagination. Bubble gum, fresh cut grass, pumpkin pie, marshmallow, and coconut water hardly begin to describe the many flavors of Vodka.
Seems that Vodka is a lightweight—quite literally. This clear Spirit actually weighs less than water. One liter of water weighs 1,000 grams, while the same amount of Vodka only clocks in at 953 grams.
You won't impress the bartender by ordering Vodka-soda, but it's a good choice if you want to avoid unecessary sugar intake and make sure you stay hydrated when consuming alcohol.
Vodka can be made anywhere in the world and pretty much of any ingredient that contains starch.

For a potato-based Vodka, 12kg (26.5lbs) potatoes are needed to produce a single bottle.
