Jack Maxwell Is Treated To Homemade Pineapple ‘swipe,’ An 80-proof Moonshine, On BOOZE TRAVELER

Jack Maxwell starts his boozy exploration of Hawaii in Oahu, with a surprisingly non-Hawaiian drink, a mesquite-smoked Manhattan, made local by using island leaf bitters and orange curacao. He makes his way to the North Shore where surf legend and old friend Tom Pohaku Stone, treats Maxwell to some homemade pineapple “swipe,” an 80-proof moonshine. Maxwell moves on to Maui, hitching a ride with Maui Brewing Company owner Garrett Marrero, for a beach barbecue in Paia – the heart of Maui’s north shore – and a taste of Marrero’s original craft beer. Next, Maxwell heads to the Makua Valley to meet distiller Dave Flintstone, maker of Hawaii’s first alcohol – okolehao. Maxwell and Flintstone go for a hike through the jungle to dig up wild ti root, the main ingredient in the moonshine. Afterwards, Maxwell makes his way to Honolulu's Waikiki Beach, where he joins a reunion of the 100th Infantry Battalion 442 Regimental Combat Team, toasting the vets with shochu – a clear, distilled spirit. Before saying goodbye, Maxwell heads back to Oahu for a beach barbecue and bonfire, learning more about the island’s appeal including the true meaning of ohana – family. New episode premieres Tuesday, November 24 at 9:00pm ET/PT.
