Discovering Clairin for the first time is a transformative experience. This Haitian speciality, made from fermented sugarcane juice, is a treat that rarely leaves its home country, except for a select few exceptional blends thanks to Luca Gargano and Velier. Each distillery, like the family-owned Arawaks in Cavaillon, brings its own unique character and charm to the mix. Don't be surprised if you become obsessed with the flavors and complexity of this rum, which is never spoiled with added sugar or artificial coloring. And don't forget to keep an eye out for Fritz Vaval, the man with the machete at the helm of Distillery Arawaks, whose primitive yet effective methods produce undeniable results.
