How Kōloa Rum is Made
Since our first batch of rum was bottled and distilled in September 2009, the Kōloa Rum
Company has been bringing The Spirit of Aloha to the world.
Using these unique, authentic ingredients, our premium Hawaiian rums are twice-distilled, blended, bottled, and shipped directly from the distillery in Kalaheo, on the south side of the beautiful Garden Isle of Kauaʻi. The Kōloa Rum Distillery Team is proud to produce and ship across the U.S. mainland, Australia, Austria, France, Germany, Japan and Western Canada. Our rums are distilled in single batches using our vintage (circa 1947) 1,210-gallon copper-pot still, with a copper column and condenser. During the second distillation, the distillate is collected in three sections – heads, heart, and tails. Kōloa Rum uses only the heart of the batch.
