The Spirit of the Hawaiian Cowboy
Hali'imaile Distilling Company proudly introduces its most recent addition to their portfolio of island brands. Paniolo Blended Whiskey is a tribute to the Hawaiian Cowboy.
In the late 18th Century King Kamehameha the First was gifted cattle by Captain George Vancouver of the British Royal Navy. Mexican Vaqueros were brought to the Hawaiian Islands to control the cattle and break the Pupule (wild horses). These Vaqueros embraced the Hawaiian tradition, and became known as Paniolo. In the Spirit of the Hawaiian Cowboy, Paniolo Whiskey brings mainland history and Island Tradition together once again. Enjoy Paniolo Whiskey. The Spirit of the Hawaiian Cowboy.
Paniolo Blended Whiskey is the perfect balance of Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, blended with Hali'imaile Distilling’s Maui Gold Pineapple Distillate. The Pineapple distillate, the same used in Hali'imaile Distilling's Pau Maui Vodka, is distilled to neutral to allow for an extremely clean and smooth finish without any pineapple flavor.
Per Hali'imaile Distilling Company's Master Distiller, Mark Nigbur, "When you start with something as pure as All-American Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, then finely tune it with just the right amount of our Maui Gold Pineapple distillate, you end up with a blended whiskey that any whiskey connoisseur would be proud to drink. We feel that we have created something truly unique with this offering. A perfect blend of mainland and the islands coming together for one outstanding product."
Hali'imaile Distilling Company is a micro-distillery devoted to producing authentically Hawaiian brands located on the island of Maui, in the heart of the Upcountry.
