Clairin Vaval Pot Still Rhum Pur Jus de Canne
He is the owner of the Arrawaks distillery in Cavaillon, in the south of the country, near the beautiful beaches of Aquin. The Vaval family has owned the distillery since 1947.
Fritz, who has run the business for many years, is the owner of 20 hectares of land planted with varieties of Madame Meuze sugar cane, cultivated naturally.
The Nazon-type Clairin, which is produced from pure cane juice, is fermented naturally with wild yeast and distilled in one continuous copper column still with 10 trays and a homemade condenser made from a gasoline can.
Fritz has also aged Clairin in barrels, and the results he obtained are extremely interesting.
HAITI the last frontier of RHUM!
Haiti is the last rum frontier and “Clairin” is the native rum. No one before Velier had ever discovered the inconceivable: there are now 49 running distilleries in the entire Caribbean and no less than 532 in Haiti alone!
Small craft distilleries are scattered throughout the only Caribbean country that rebelled against slavery in 1804 and was shown the red card by the Western world. Today, Haiti is the only country that remains wonderfully “pure” with its original species of un-hybridised sugar cane, chemical-free farming, spontaneous fermentation with no yeasts, and archaic unfiltered distillation.
Unexplored and surprising aromaticity, not only for cane distillates, they are the only natural rums in the world! Haiti began as Cinderella and became a Princess!
