OCEAN® Organic Vodka just recently unveiled a new bottle design, introduced in the Hawaiian market in September and across the mainland beginning in January 2015.

It is currently distributed in 36 states and Canada at a suggested retail price of $32.99 for 750ML and in additional sizes of 50ML, 375ML and 1 Liter. An award-winning vodka, OCEAN has recently garnered a Triple Gold Award from the Beverly Hills International Spirits Awards Competition 2013; a Triple Gold Medal from the MicroLiquor Spirits Awards global competition 2012; and Finalist in the Ultimate Spirits Challenge NYC 2012.

Deep Island Hawaiian Rum was released in Hawaii in September, and will be distributed throughout the mainland in 2015. Deep Island Hawaiian Rum delivers a true rum experience complete with all of the flavor and character that is germane to fresh pressed cane juice. The authentic clear Maui rum is a little sweet with hints of tropical florals and rich dark molasses. It is now sold throughout the state at $32.99 for 750ML.

Both OCEAN Organic Vodka and Deep Island Hawaiian Rum are produced in Kula, Maui, Hawai‘i, on an 80-acre organic farm and distillery.
