Mālama Kauaʻi posted an article about local distillery, Hanalei Spirits.

“Our goal for our company is to set a high standard of Aloha as we interact with our local and visiting community.  Having more diversified agriculture is a step in the right direction for creating a softer footprint on our land and environment. We hope to do our small part to help maintain a healthier balance between Hawaii’s rich history in agriculture and our dependence upon visitors. Small steps like these can help keep Kaua’i our “garden island” a unique and sustainable island home” says Vindi Wells.

Vindi, born and raised on Kauaʻi, and her husband Grant, are distilling spirits using locally sourced ingredients, using a still made from refurnbished parts found in sugarcane pastures. Aside from plain vodka and rum, unique products include taro vodka and okolehau, a Hawaiʻian spirit distilled from ti plants.
