Manulele Distillers are the makers of KōHana Hawaiian Agricole Rum. Native Hawaiian sugarcane thrived 800 years before the days of the plantations. Experience heirloom varieties again: Hand harvested and pressed to juice, these heirloom canes are distilled to perfection. The result is one of the world's finest pure cane rums.

2 oz KōHana Kea Rum (Manulele varietal)
½ oz Noilly Prat Extra Dry Vermouth
½ oz Giffard Banane du Bresil
1 dash Bitter Truth Celery Bitters

Combine ingredients in a pint glass filled with ice. Stir to incorporate. Strain into a chilled coupe or martini glass.


Summit is Hawaii's global magazine of ideas, style and smart living. We're named for Queen Kapiolani's motto, "kulia i ka nuu," strive for the summit. Summit is available on fine newsstands throughout North America and the Asia-Pacific region.
