Clairin Communal 

Clairin is considered the national spirit of Haiti, and is an eaux-de-vie produced similarly to agricole rum, generally by a single local distiller using sugarcane from their village’s and adjoining fields. Largely secreted from the world for nearly 200 years, clairin was introduced to the world by Italian distributors, Velier, after Luca Gargano and Daniele Biondi discovered these distillers on at trip to Haiti in 2012.

Communal is a blend of clairin from each of the four distilleries represented in the Velier portfolio: Chelo, Arawaks, Douglas Casimir and Le Rocher.
