The base rum is a blend of four molasses-based rums from Panama, Nicaragua, Barbados, and Venezuela. Distilled between 85%-94% ABV, they are relatively light rums, aged 2-3 years, 3-8 years, 5-8 years, and 8 years, respectively. The two body rums create gorgeous layers of depth and flavor: the lightly aged and flavor-rich Aged Hawaiian Rum Agricole made from fresh sugarcane juice and distilled between 60% and 74% ABV; and a 15-year-aged rum made from molasses in Barbados distilled from 90%-94% ABV. The final touch is the accent rum from Trinidad, which is a lovely yet challenging molasses rum. Distilled to 90%-94% ABV and aged 18 years, it offers a level of complexity and intrigue that puts Hōkūlei in the upper echelon of spirits.
The Kuleana Rum Works team are farmers, blenders, and distillers. They grow ~35 heirloom varieties of kō (Hawaiian heirloom sugarcane), on their 44 acre farm on the Kohala coast on the island of Hawai‘i. They use this kō to create an exceptionally flavorful Hawaiian Rum Agricole, which provides the magic for their world-class family of blends. The distillery never uses any post distillation processing, ensuring all of the products are free of sweeteners, flavors, or coloring, resulting in a family of gluten free, sugar free, and 0 carb rums.
