Kō Hana Distillers
Kō Hana Distillers has been making rum in Kunia, Oahu, Hawaii since 2014. These are the rums they’re currently producing:
Kō Hana Hawaiian Agricole Rum - KEA, an heirloom Hawaiian cane juice-based rum that’s first distilled with a pot still and then again with a column still. It’s then rested for at least three months in steel tanks before it’s bottled at 80 proof. The distillery offers various styles of their KEA rum that are distilled from different types of sugarcane.
Kō Hana Hawaiian Agricole Rum - KOHO, an heirloom Hawaiian cane juice-based rum that’s distilled the same way as the KEA rum, but then aged in new American white oak barrels (char level 3) or used bourbon barrels for an unspecified amount of time. Bottled at 86 proof.
Kō Hana Hawaiian Agricole Rum - KOA, a cask strength version of their KOHO rum that’s bottled only from select barrels that have a “perfect balance of flavor and character without the need for dilution,” according to the distillery. Bottled at 110-125 proof.
Kō Hana Hawaiian Agricole Rum - KOKOLEKA, a version of their agricole rum that’s infused with heirloom Hawaiian cacao and blended with Maunawili honey. Bottled at 60 proof.
