The name 'Motu' immediately summons to the mind images of the beautiful tropics for which this amazing rum gets its name. Named after the Polynesian word for 'island', this rum exemplifies the deep relationship between those who distill it and the South Pacific islands that they call home. Motu Rum carries flavors and distinct geographic notes from only the highest quality sugar cane, grown right in the tropics. After being distilled down to the award winning 80 proof spirit that it is, Motu Rum is imported through San Francisco's Treasure Island, and into the United States for all to enjoy. A true native of the South Pacific culture, Motu Rum was even served at the coronation of King George Tupou V, who presided over the last Kingdom of the South Pacific, Tonga. Royalty of all sorts partook in the tradition of island rum that has been so prevalent in the region even to this day.
