Kalani coconut liqueur

i just got a bottle of this and was wondering if anyone else has tried it.

I have to say this is by far the most authentic and natural tasting coconut product I have had, tastes like alcoholic coconut milk. Wonderful stuff.

I have seen it in two different packages, this very fancy one that sells for $35-45 - I have seen no mention of this on chowhound, I would guess that the high price has discouraged people from trying an unknown liqueur - it kept me away for a while.

And this rather plain one,. which is what I got from for $20 - when I saw this price I didn't hesitate because I thought it sounded interesting.

      Can you please tell me where I can buy the fancy Kalani in this bottle or is the less fancy bottle the same as the other? The one I tried over the weekend at a friends was clear with a warm amber color and delicious! The only bottle I could find in stock anywhere was the less fancy bottle but the description said it has mashed coconut pulp in it and the sounds like it might be a different liqueur :( Please let me know if they are one and the same and if not, where I can buy the clear version. Thank you!

    2. I tried the one from the fancier bottle on a friends boat this weekend and fell in LOVE! OMG it was sooo good. We sipped over ice, I put it in my coffee and even over my vanilla ice cream. I was tempted to put on my waffles too! Now I can't find it :( I found the less fancy bottle but it sounds like it might be a different recipe. The plainer bottle says it has mashed coconut pulp in it which I don't think the one I tried had. It was very clear - like liquid gold ;)
      Have you tried both and are they the same?

        My bottle doesn't say anything about mashed coconut pulp, it just says "made with real coconut", and it is clear. The bottle is glass covered with a white plastic film. ( A google search also shows it available in a clear bottle. )
