Copalli White Belizean Rum
Award-winning Copalli Barrel Rested is a 100% sustainably distilled, single estate, organic rum made in the heart of the Belizean rainforest using all-natural ingredients. The rum is pot distilled using freshly harvested sugarcane juice, rainforest canopy water, premium selected yeast, then aged in American Oak barrels to create a full bodied, sweet tasting rum.
After fermenting our fresh pressed sugarcane juice, we double distill in both a pot and column stills before blending the two distillates. This is followed by resting of the finished product in stainless steel. This creates a smooth white rum that’s as good served straight on the rocks or in a cocktail such as a daiquiri.
Nose: Vanilla, Coffee Bean, Grass

Built on organic agriculture practices, circular water methods, lower than industry standard emissions per bottle, renewable biomass powered boiler, zero refrigerant cooling system, zero particulate pollution, and as the largest non-governmental employer in Southern Belize, we have a lot to be proud of. The same spirit that got us here drives us to continue maintaining our high standards of production and operation, constantly seeking what else we can do to reduce our impact.
In particular, we are exploring both the use of recycled glass content in and the design of our bottle, and sourcing our integrated marketing materials. We are also working within the constraints of the logistics industry to find alternative solutions for reducing transportation emissions. We are also enthusiastically investigating the feasibility of producing renewable solar energy on-site.
Copal Tree Distillery is also active in promoting and protecting the Belizean culture and has supported local musical artists and performers, including the Leela Vernon Memorial Museum and Kriol Kulcha House which showcases memorabilia representing more than 400 years of Kriol Culture.
While we have a strong foundation in sustainability, the biggest task we see ahead of us is the maintenance of these principles as we grow. Our priority will always be to have the smallest impact on the environment and the largest impact on the community. As we look forward to our future, we see these two principles as inseparable from our operations.
