About Us

A different style of rum, Whaler's is made according to an old Hawaiian recipe. Legend has it that early seafarers rattled vanilla beans in empty rum bottles at sunset to entice migrating whales to their boats to guide them to the tropical haven known as Hawaii.

Once in Hawaii, these sailors discovered old rum makers from the isle of Maui and were so impressed by their Hawaiian homegrown rum that they called it Whaler's. Inspired by tropical flavors and colors of Hawaii, other rum flavors were later developed.

Today, Whaler's is available in eight distinctive flavors: Vanillé, Killer Coconut, Pineapple Paradise, Big Island Banana, Original Dark, Spiced, Great White, and Rare Reserve Dark.
