Distillerie Faubert Casimir – Baradères
Clairin Casimir is produced on the north side of the southern fork in the village of Baradères: the last frontier of coffee, cocoa and Clairin.
On the north side of the southern fork of Haiti is the village of Baradères: a region famous for its coffee, cocoa and Clairin.
Baradères is a small fishing village, quite isolated but with a fairly large population and many small distilleries.
Faubert Casimir produces his Clairin using Hawaii Rouge and Hawaii Blanc, a relative of the O’Tahiti cane from Polynesia. The cane is pressed, and the pure juice goes through a very long wild fermentation in wooden vats made from local chestnut trees.
In the style of Baradères, Faubert adds local citrus to his fermenting wash (to control the pH and prolong his fermentation) as well as herbs like lemongrass (locally used to keep away unwanted pests).
Clairin Casimir exhibits very intense aromas, from candied fruit and herbs to heady truffles. Clairin Casimir is represented by the painting of the famous Port-au-Prince based artist, Simeon Michel.
