Hawaii’s award-winning Koloa Rum Company has announced the launch of its first-ever Kauai Reserve Three-Year Aged Hawaiian Rum.
Artfully crafted in single-batches at its Kalaheo distillery, Kauai Reserve is made from the finest Hawaii sugar cane and fresh island water that was slowly filtered through volcanic strata before reaching vast underground aquifers. Kauai Reserve is carefully aged for a minimum of three years in select American white oak barrels and contains no added sugar, color or other ingredients.
“We are thrilled to be launching our newest rum at the dawn of the new year. Kauai Reserve pours elegantly from the bottle, with a warm golden hue and a bouquet of mellow oak, orange peel and toasted vanilla. It’s remarkably smooth with rich, complex flavors that linger long after the last sip. Kauai Reserve is perfect to warm winter’s chill and is best enjoyed neat or on the rocks.”
– Bob Gunter, Koloa Rum Company President and CEO
Each of Kauai Reserve’s 12-barrel batches yields approximately 3,500 bottles that are carefully filled, inspected and numbered to meet the standards for quality and taste that Koloa Rum Company is known for.
According to Gunter, the release of Kauai Reserve is the culmination of more than five years of intensive research and experimentation by the Koloa Rum’s distillery team as the protocols necessary for the proper aging of rum in Hawaii’s tropical environment is not found in manuals, but rather learned hands-on.
Kauai Reserve Three-Year Aged Hawaiian Rum is now available in California and other West Coast markets. In Hawaii, it is now being sold at the Koloa Rum Tasting Room and Company Store at Kilohana Plantation on Kauai and select retail outlets. Kauai Reserve retail price starts at $49.99 per 750ml bottle.
