I've been in contact with a distiller who has hinted that they are in production of authentic okolehao and they could be making an announcement in the very near future. This is not a fly by night operation. It's a brand that is familiar. This is a direct quote from part of my correpondence with them:
"Thanks for the email and the interest. It is a little too early for us to announce anything concrete.....
Best we can say right now is keep checking our website . . . and before you know it your efforts will be rewarded. Sorry I can't say more, but our company's policy is to make product announcements when we have actual product on the shelves to sell."
I don't feel like I should reveal who they are because of their business plan. This could be 'vapor ware', but I don't get that feeling from all that's been given to me.
I know, I know . . TC has been down this road before. And yes, I could be making all this up, but if you've been following some of my other oke posts you know I'm very serious about the subject. I've been trying to get an authetic recipe and the obscure ingredients to make my own. A commercial vendor may beat me to the goal line.
