Behind the scenes look at Hawaii’s very own rum distillery

Sponsored by Ko Hana Rum

Most rum is made from molasses, an industrial byproduct of processed sugar manufacturing. Not Ko Hana. It’s meticulously crafted from farm to bottle.

A select portion of the rum rests in oak barrels to develop and reveal the essence of the cane. This sensory process is demanding and time consuming, yet necessary, to honor the Kō.

Kō plants were the progenitors of the remaining heirloom varietals of native Hawaiian sugarcane in existence today. Kō was used in daily living and was purposely planted around homes. In addition to its leaves, Kō was valued for its ease of chewing and ample juice in the stalks. Its sweet juice was a key ingredient in many medicinal recipes. Kō was also used as an offering to the Gods and as a core component in many ceremonies.
