It starts with the cane.
Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum is made from the finest sugar cane grown in the best cane growing region in the world - Hawaii. Pure first-growth and first-press sugar cane from Hawaii produces the most flavorful juice possible.
We could have been like all the others, following the standard one year maturation period of cane used in other premium rums. But to make the finest premium rum possible, the cane in Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum matures for a full two years before it can meet our standards. This gives the sugar from the cane its intense character and wonderful aroma.
After carefully selecting only the best crops, the canes are harvested and then gently pressed near our distillery. This pressing extracts the first-press sugar cane juice. The cane juice is fermented for 5 days in custom made vats to create ”mash” with an incredible bouquet.
Our master distiller oversees the full production process, hand-distilling the mash in small batches using unique handmade pot stills to purify the finished product while leaving the cane’s distinct character. The result is a pure premium rum with a delicately delicious flavor and a hint of tropical Hawaii.
Enjoying Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum
How you drink it depends on the moment (cocktails with friends, after dinner, etc.) but most important is how you personally enjoy spirits. Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum is perfect as it is, so smooth you will savor each sip. Should you prefer mixed drinks, it enhances any cocktail - Mai Tais, Mojitos, Pina Coladas, Maui Libres, etc.
As Sammy says in one of his songs ”One sip and you’ll surrender.”
|Haliimaile Distilling Company produces handcrafted, locally made, authentic Hawaiian brand spirits. We are located in the heart of Mauis pineapple region, Upcountry Makawao, Maui. Our goal is to create ”Hawaii in a Bottle.”
At Haliimaile Distilling Company we set ourselves apart by starting with local ingredients and distilling in small batches, using unique stills, to create authentic Hawaiian spirits. Every part of our Distilling process is one of a kind and designed in house. Once distilled, our spirits are mixed with crystal clear Hawaiian spring water.
Upcountry Maui is not only a place, its a lifestyle.
Haliimaile Distilling Company is located in the small town of Makawao, home to the Paniolo (Hawaiian cowboys). For many years, Hawaiians have farmed the rich, volcanic soil of the Upcountry fields.
Geographically speaking, Upcountry Maui is much of the area on the Haleakala side of Maui, away from the shoreline. Upcountry is mostly rural, agricultural and residential. Beyond upcountry, you can reach Mauis highest peak at the Haleakala National Park. The largest towns Upcountry are Makawao, Pukalani, Kula and Haiku, although Upcountry has no precise boundaries.
Our pristine surroundings give us access to clean air, pure water and exquisite agriculture. Allowing us to produce ultra-premium, Hawaiian spirits.
