About Hali'imaile Distilling Company

About the Distillery

Hali'imaile Distilling Company produces handcrafted, locally made, authentic Hawaiian brand spirits. We are located in the heart of Maui’s pineapple region, Upcountry Makawao, Maui. Our goal is to create "Hawaii in a Bottle."

At Hali'imaile 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, it’s a lifestyle.

Hali'imaile 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 Maui’s 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.
