Ryan Mabbutt makes sure labels are applied straight and clean to bottles of Pau Maui Vodka. Haliimaile Distilling Co. makes rum, gin, whiskey and vodka – vodka being the most popular. “As far as I know, we are the only vodka made from pineapples,” says tasting room and events manager Nichole Kosar, noting the pineapples come from a farm across the street from the distillery in upcountry Maui. Haliimaile employs 12 people and distributes across Hawaii and to about half of the Mainland states.
