Review #1306 – Clairin Sajous

The Schtick: “North of Haiti’s capital; Port-au-Prince, in Saint Michel de l’Attalaye region, Michel Sajous built the Chelo distillery in the same place where the family has been since 1960. The small distillery is located in the middle of the plantation and spans 30 hectares which are planted with different varieties of organic sugar cane. A purebred Haitian, this Clairin is distilled twice.”-SpecialtyBrands
