SOURCED FROM ORGANIC FARM

  • Copal Tree Farm is located adjacent to the distillery in the heart of the rainforest in Southern Belize. It is here the organic, non-GMO, heirloom sugar cane is hand cut.

    Fun fact: this was the first certified organic farm in Belize.

  • Within two hours of cutting, the cane is shredded and pressed to maximize the freshness of the cane juice.
  • We use this fresh-pressed sugar cane juice – not commercial grade molasses as so many other rums do.
  • Yeast ferments the fresh sugar cane juice before double distillation results in the perfect output from the mix of copper pot and column stills.
  • Pure rainforest canopy water adds a soft and clean flavor profile to Copalli Rum.
  • Our craft distillery prioritizes slightly less efficient processing and a lower yield per pound sugarcane in favor of richer and more complex taste profiles.
  • While many other white and dark rums add additional coloring or flavoring elements, we add nothing extra. Just clean, delicious rum from three ingredients.

Zero Impact Facility

ECO-FRIENDLY DISTILLERY

  • The distillery is designed to be zero impact. The stills are powered by sustainable, regenerative biomass, and the process supports the full-circle conversion of waste from production into agricultural inputs.
  • Instead of burning the sugarcane fields before cutting the cane (as many commercial sugar and rum operations do), we cut our organic sugar cane then let it regenerate for the next harvest season. This helps recycle enriching CO2 back into the soil. Plus, not burning the fields prevents pollution!
  • Driven by our zero-waste policy, after we extract the complex and flavorful sugarcane juice, we recycle the leftover stalks of the sugarcane and use them to fuel the distillery boiler, which heats the stills. Then the ash is used to fertilize the cane fields.
  • Any wastewater from the distillery goes through a filtration system and into retention ponds. From there, it’s safe to go into the river or be used to water plants and crops. Separately, we capture rainwater at the distillery and use that for blending the rum. When we say we’re zero waste, we mean it!

Philanthropy

Supporting the local community

  • The founders have spearheaded the local community’s philanthropic support in Southern Belize for over 20 years through a lasting legacy of rainforest preservation, marine conservation, and support of local education.
  • Every part of the rum is sourced, distilled, barreled, aged, and bottled at Copal Tree Farms and Distillery in rural Southern Belize.
  • Copal Tree Farms and Distillery are the largest employers in Southern Belize, providing over 100 jobs to local residents in a clean and safe working environment.
