Where To Buy Pau Maui Vodka
Pau Maui Vodka is the only Vodka in the world made from Maui Gold Pineapples. Why start with Maui Gold Pineapples? Production for Pau Maui Vodka happens in the middle of Hawaiian pineapple fields that have been harvested for over a century with access to the best pineapple in the world. The extra sweet Maui Gold Pineapple is perfect for fermentation due to its high sugar content. Even though pineapples are used for fermentation in Pau Mau Vodka, there is no pineapple taste, instead we are left with a very clean and crisp premium vodka. Pineapples in Maui have the benefit of warm sunny days, cool nights, fresh water, and volcanic soil, allowing for clean fruit. Hawaiian pineapples take 18 months to grow but are only ripe in the field for 2-3 days. It is essential that pineapples are picked at the perfect time because pineapples will not continue to ripen once they are harvested. We only use pineapples that are picked at the optimal stage of ripeness to give Pau Maui Vodka the clean and refreshing finish for which it has become known.
where to buy pau maui vodka
Made from the universal symbol of hospitality, the pineapple, PAU Maui Vodka is the perfect libation to welcome others to your home, table, or celebration. Local-Maui ingredients are distilled through a unique glass still creating a crisp and clean vodka that personifies the luscious volcanic slopes and sandy beaches of its home.
As I noted with the last Hawaiian vodka, Pau Maui Vodka is also not a polite drink. You could sip this for hours, completely unaware of how drunk you are. Only to be shown how completely wasted you really are when try to stand or walk or talk.
With all the flavored vodkas on the market, it was definitely time for pineapple but we had it all wrong! Pau Maui is not a flavored vodka. It is actually distilled from pineapples grown on Maui. We had to find out more.
Distillation is where it gets interesting. Back in Colorado, Mark Nigbur designed and produced laboratory grade glass stills with 14-foot columns, the only ones in the world. He believes copper can impart flavor as the distillation process takes place. The single distillation is similar to a continuous still, but the column contains volcanic rock for filtration purposes. After one pass the spirit is already at 96.5% alcohol and then goes through gravity filtration via activated carbon. The result is totally pure, clean vodka that does not taste of pineapple but has an elusive sweetness to it. It compares very favorably with other premium vodkas and, of course, it is gluten free.
If you thought Maui had room for only one vodka, think again. Two years ago, the first Maui vodka appeared. Ocean Vodka distills grain in Idaho and bottles it on Maui with desalinated deep ocean water from the Big Island.
Pau Trading uses pure Maui Gold pineapple juice as the base for their vodka, an unconventional ingredient indeed. Vodka purists, there is no cause for alarm: the sweet, tart pineapple flavor disappears during the distillation and filtration process. 041b061a72
