Enchanted Isle Direct … to a doorway near YOU ! ! !

Greet­ings everybody;

I know that it is been a while but now we have some extra great news to relate!

For the last year folks from around the coun­try have been call­ing and ask­ing if we could ship direct. I’ve always had my reser­va­tions as many who sell prod­ucts online are behav­ing ille­gally. But we have found a com­pany that is safe and secure as well is very pro­fes­sional. As a result of this I’m happy to announce that we can now send Enchanted Isle direct to your door.

We at Motu are work­ing with our friends at Dean & DeLuca in St. Helena Cal­i­for­nia to expe­dite your orders. To place an order all you need do is call Dean & DeLuca at 707–967-9980 x 4106 and ask for Lee Rein­si­mar (you may also reach Lee via e-mail:

For those of you out there who have recently dis­cov­ered Tahiti, wel­come, for those long time trav­el­ers out there always feel free to send us your Tahiti sto­ries and expe­ri­ences. We love to hear from our friends around the country.

All the best to every­one, Maruru


What Enchanted Isle is and is not …

Matthew of Motu .… .     your lead­ing (we pre­fer “fear­lessly lead­ing”) Tahiti-ologist

Greet­ings from the offices of Motu and Matthew — your lead­ing “Tahiti-ologist”:

I am asked this ques­tion fre­quently, so now it is time to put it down in writing.

What Enchanted Isle is and is not:

Enchanted Isle is not a rum punch. For some­thing to be a rum punch it would have to include Rum, Enchanted Isle has no Rum in it; we use cane spirit.

What is cane spirit you may ask? The best way to answer this is to explain how rum is made.  Rum begins by fer­ment­ing a sim­ple car­bo­hy­drate, sugar or molasses. The fer­mented prod­uct is then passed through a dis­tiller or a fil­ter ele­ment.  With one pass you will have a prod­uct that is 80 proof. The fla­vor of rum is the result of the impu­ri­ties that are left in it after a sin­gle dis­til­la­tion pass.

To man­u­fac­ture cane spirit a fer­mented sugar must be passed through dis­til­la­tion a min­i­mum of four times and usu­ally five. This will elim­i­nate all of the fla­vors that we asso­ciate with Rum. Our gov­ern­ment def­i­n­i­tion of this process is that when a fer­mented sugar prod­uct is fer­mented repeat­edly and is above 190 proof the term for it is cane spirit. Cane spirit imparts none of the fla­vors of rum as the impu­ri­ties have been fil­tered out due to mul­ti­ple distillations.

Enchanted Isle uses cane spirit in a form known as” eau de vie”. Eau de vie indi­cates a stan­dard and a process. To man­u­fac­ture eau de vie one must start with the finest ingre­di­ents pos­si­ble and use a true dis­til­la­tion process. In our case we use 26 foot tall cop­per alem­bic tow­ers. The stan­dard for eau de vie is sim­i­lar to the Ger­manic stan­dards for the brew­ing of beer or the Russ­ian stan­dard for the man­u­fac­ture of vodka.

This approach is very costly, how­ever; for you our cus­tomers Enchanted Isle does not impart the fla­vor of rum and there­fore becomes a great base for cock­tails, mimosas, belli­nis; or really, any­thing that your heart desires. If you have any ques­tions or com­ments please leave them with us and I will do my best to get back to you.

Greet­ings from Cal­i­for­nia and Tahiti!

At long last, the State of Col­orado has com­pleted its shores and we’re cleared to land. So now it is only a mat­ter of when we can get the truck out from Col­orado to pick up Enchanted Isle.

As this unfolds we intend to pub­lish restau­rants, bars and retail out­lets that have the prod­uct. For those of you fur­ther to the east, we should have some good news for you before too long.


Road Trip …

Hello Every­body:

Just for fun I thought I would share this with everybody.

Last night I received a phone call from a gen­tle­man who had heard about us on the Inter­net. He placed a phone call to Dean & DeLuca and was told that indeed they have Enchanted Isle, which is Tahiti Drink’s name in the US. He drove up from cen­tral Cal­i­for­nia to buy it. Then he went to the web­site found my phone num­ber and gave me a call. He went on and on about how ecsta­tic he was that finally, after all this time, Tahiti Drink was here. He thanked me pro­fusely and in return I thanked him for his support.

Enchanted Isle now available in California …

Greet­ings everybody, Where To Buy

Finally it is time for some good news!

You can now find Enchanted Isle (Tahiti Drink) on the shelves at the Bot­tle Barn in Santa Rosa and Dean & DeLuca in St. Helena, both in California.

For those of you in Cal­i­for­nia (or if you have friends in Cal­i­for­nia who might “for­ward” a ship­ment to you) Dean & DeLuca will ship to any loca­tion in the state. Just call Lee at Dean & Deluca at 707–967-9980 ext 4106 and ask about “Enchanted Isle”. He’ll get the wheels in motion for you.

Details for both mer­chants can be found on our “Where to Buy” page (see:  As we ship to addi­tional mer­chants we’ll add their names to this page as well. We’ll also send out Twit­ter mes­sages and post to our Face­book page as well.

For those out­side the state of CA, maybe it’s time to visit friends here and order a ship­ment to meet you at their place. For any­one who can get to Healds­burg CA (“down­town” Wine Coun­try USA) you’ll find Enchanted Isle at Healds­burg Bar and Grill (aka: HBG).

And last but not least, for those of you who have been call­ing and e-mailing about the Vanilla Creme liqueur, which is called “Vahine Creme”, we have good news for you. The paper­work required for fed­eral approval to allow import in the USA has been sub­mit­ted. Many of you have e-mailed and said that you have been try­ing to find this prod­uct in the USA for years, your wait will soon be over. More infor­ma­tion com­ing soon.

All the best to each of you and thanks again for your patience and inter­est in Enchanted Isle.

We have the technology …

Hello every­body,

We found a rather well-written arti­cle about our ‘Tahiti Drink’ pro­duct­ing friends at Manutea Tahiti, S.A. from a fel­low Tahiti trav­eler over in Lon­don. We decided to go ahead and share this one with you.
Click here to view this arti­cle ‘Juice Tech­nol­ogy from French Poly­ne­sia’ in Engi­neer­ing and Tech­nol­ogy Mag­a­zine.


Updates …

Hello every­body:

For those of you been to the site in the last few days you’ll notice that we added a few pic­tures of our Enchanted Isle model. This is per the end­less string of requests that I received on the tele­phone and via e-mails.

Since our last blog our web­mas­ter, Dani, has become engaged. Con­grat­u­la­tions Dani! For any of you out there who need a truly superb site builder, give Dani a call. You will find her site address at the bot­tom of the web­pages,

For those of you watch­ing the blog and send­ing in e-mails, I have been promis­ing good news is com­ing soon. In the next few weeks we will add a “where to get Enchanted Isle” tab to the site. Yes it is com­ing and quite soon.

All the best Matthew

This just in …

You can now find Tahiti Drink and Enchanted Isle on Wikipedia. We’re pleased with our short (but sweet) list­ing on the world’s largest ref­er­ence site. You can find us here: Wikipedia: Tahiti Drink.


The “Enchanted” Network …

Greet­ings one and all …

In an ear­lier blog I explained that much as we would like to we can’t just ship to you directly. As we’re in the early stages of build­ing up our dis­tri­b­u­tion net­work I thought I’d give you some insight on how this busi­ness works.

The sys­tem used in the United States is called three-tier. Motu Importers must sell prod­uct to a dis­trib­u­tor who can be state-wide or work within a region of a state. It is then the distributor’s job to place the prod­uct in retail loca­tions, bars, restau­rants, etc.

For a dis­trib­u­tor to get involved in a prod­uct as new and dif­fer­ent as Enchanted Isle requires an emo­tional and finan­cial com­mit­ment. So far we have dis­trib­u­tors in Cal­i­for­nia and Col­orado. They should have prod­uct some­time in April.

As our net­work devel­ops we’ll update the list of dis­trib­u­tors here on our site as well as via Twit­ter and our Face­book page.

Also, if you send us an email (either with the “Con­tact Page” form or just direct) and include your city/state we’ll be sure to send an email your way when we have some­one in your area.

That is all for now. All the best to you!

Why “Enchanted Isle” rather than “Tahiti Drink”?

Greet­ings everybody:

Thank you every­body for all of phone calls and emails. Many of you have asked why we are mar­ket­ing under the name Enchanted Isle instead of Tahiti Drink. The rea­son is a legal one hav­ing to do with trade­marks and copy­rights. To put it sim­ply it is very dif­fi­cult to pro­tect a copy­right or trade­mark of a geo­graphic loca­tion. While we could place copy­rights and trade­marks on the name Tahiti Drink, because the name Tahiti is a geo­graphic loca­tion it would be very dif­fi­cult to enforce copy­rights and trade­marks in court. Once we decided that a name change was in order the chal­lenge was to come up with the name that really said it all in one or two words.

Please tell us how you like the name (com­ment sec­tion below). Thanks!

All the best,

Where can I buy Enchanted Isle?

Hello every­body,

We have been receiv­ing a great deal of emails and phone calls regard­ing Enchanted Isle. Thank you all for tak­ing the time to cor­re­spond with us we really love hear­ing from you.

For those of you who are ask­ing; yes, this is the prod­uct known as Tahiti Drink in French Poly­ne­sia. The next time I blog I will explain why the name change.

For all of you who are ask­ing when you can buy Enchanted Isle locally I ask that you send us a mes­sage from our “Con­tact” page and tell us which city/state or zip you live in. We’ll get back to you as soon as we have a retail out­let in your area.

Many of you are ask­ing if we can send the prod­uct to you; the answer is we can­not. Quite sim­ply it is ille­gal to do so. It is legal to ship wine across state bor­ders to a retail cus­tomer but this is not the case for beer or spirit prod­ucts. So, as much as we wish we could, we sim­ply cannot.

If you have any ques­tions for us either use the com­ments area below or send us a mes­sage through out “Con­tact” page and we will be happy to respond back.

All the Best to you,
