KANA 加那

-My Beloved-

This time-honored drop has been around since we first started using barrels over 50 years ago. A drink much loved by the islanders, the term "KANA" derives from the local language and can be rendered as "my beloved" in English.


KANA is made from premium-grade kokuto (traditional raw sugar), white koji, and mineral-rich island water. She is distilled in a traditional atmospheric still, which enables us to extract the exquisite flavor and aroma found in the kokuto and koji. KANA then spends a year in the barrel to add a little spice, wood, and vanilla to her profile. The barrel and kokuto are indeed a match made in heaven. 


Enjoy on the rocks, straight, or cut with a little soda or your favorite carbonated liquid. KANA further matches with cashew nuts, cheese, or—for those with a sweet tooth—some good ol' rum n' raisin ice cream.
