If you’ve been exploring the rum world, you may have heard of how incredibly different Haitian rum is, Clairin specifically, the name for the native rum of Haiti.
That being said, we felt Clairin was more akin to mezcal and other agave spirits, with over 500 micro distilleries operating on the island creating a wildly unique local spirit that remains relatively unexplored in the world of cane distillate. Natural, uncut, unfiltered and different from everything you’ve ever had before, it’s time to explore the world of Clairin with one of the most knowledgeable rum experts we’ve ever encountered: Kate Perry from La Maison & Velier.
