Carton of the cocktail

Tahiti Drink is an alcoholic mixed-drink cocktail that has been made by Manutea Tahiti S.A.[1] [2] since 1984. It is manufactured on the island of Moorea and is sold in distinctively colored cartons.[3] The drink, used as both a cocktail and a mixer, is a combination of pineapple, passion fruit and orange juices, to which vanilla and cane spirit are added. [4] [5] [6] [7]

Manutea Tahiti is owned by Jus de Fruits de Moorea S.A.,[8] [9] the largest juice and exotic fruit liquor manufacturer in the South Pacific.[10]

Tahiti Drink is available in Tahiti, and in the United States under the name Enchanted Isle.[11]
