Amy Bender, a graduate of Punahou and UH Manoa, has been in the spirits business for 8 years as the dedicated sales and marketing person for her family business, KAI Spirits. With extensive travel across the US for KAI, and notable sales abroad, she’s seen many trends and regional applications for spirits and the artistry of mixology.

Amy enlisted A Hardy USA as the national importer for KAI in 2014.  Hardy is primarily a cognac house with French origins but offers a variety of spirits from around the world and KAI fills an important niche in their portfolio.  Amy is the Hawaii broker for the entire portfolio of spirits.

In addition to the family liquor business, Amy has a passion for helping the patients of Hawaii by recruiting donors for the Blood Bank of Hawaii.  (She notes you mustn’t drink alcohol on the day of donation!)
