India’s first premium craft rum Maka Zai enters Maharashtra with availability across 70 retail outlets and the Living Liquidz app.

Launched this January, Maka Zai is a product of Still distilling Spirits - a small, homegrown, and independent company that serves up ‘micro-marvels’ of rum, that help elevate your drinking experience.

Maka Zai translates to ‘I Want’, in Konkani, and has both a White Rum - the Bartender’s Edition, and India’s first Gold Rum - the Tribute Edition. Both variants are made from locally sourced sugarcane from various parts of the country, blended on Indian soil and nourished by the sweet waters of Goa.

“Maka Zai was born out of my passion for spirits and my curiosity to experiment with different flavours. I decided to curate a collection of premium rums that would meet the needs of consumers in India who were looking for a new and fine-tasting rum,” said Kasturi Banerjee, Founder and Director of Still distilling Spirits.

Through the brand’s philosophy, ‘Drink Well’, Maka Zai strives to elevate consumers’ drinking experience, by providing a high-quality craft rum.

Right from the raw materials sourced to the significance of Maka Zai’s logo featuring the native Olive Ridley turtle, everything is a tribute to the country.
