Distillerie Arawaks – Cavaillon
Clairin Vaval is produced in the coastal village of Cavaillon in the southeast of Haiti.
Here, Fritz Vaval runs the Distillerie Arawaks which has been owned by his family since 1947.
Fritz owns 20 hectares of land planted with the Madame Meuze cane variety, cultivated naturally, without the use if chemical fertilisers or pesticides. Clairin Vaval is produced from pure sugar cane juice fermented naturally with wild yeasts and distilled on a small pot still that Fritz made himself, powered by the steam engine of an old locomotive.
Clairin Vaval tastes of its region, with aromatics of salty sea air, beach sand, and rich botanicals.
