Island Distillers was born from the idea that excellent spirits could be made right here in Hawaii from our abundant natural resources and perfect climate. How could such a great place not produce great spirits? So I set out to do just that. It took a lot longer than I imagined.  I spent years in the Caribbean learning about sugar cane alcohol. Then I spent more years learning about blending. After a few more years of planning, Island Distillers, Honolulu’s premier distillery, was launched.

Through those years I learned a great deal. I learned that things taste better when they are pure and simple; that the quality of ingredients matter; that all liquor is not created equal. I produce the the best liquors available anywhere at any price, perfect Hawaiian spirits like no other. I make each batch by hand, with a true craft approach that guarantees perfection every time.

Drink Better. Drink HAPA.
