Spirit of the Month: August 2019
We choose our Spirit of the Month to highlight some of the greatest spirits in the world. Some of them are age-old classics, some of them are great new releases, but whatever it is, you can be sure that it's something we love. This month we've chosen:
Communal RumPlease wait Please wait
Clairin is one of the most popular drinks in Haiti. A sugarcane spirit, similar to agricole rum from Martinique, Clairin is made by small, local producers throughout the region and each has an individual style and character.
Clairin Communal is a blend of spirit, all made with local varieties of sugarcane and yeast, from Sajous, Vaval, Casimir and Le Rocher, combining the unique characters of each producer to create a complex, layered spirit with fresh, fruity flavours. Try drinking Clairin Communal on its own over ice, or as part of a cocktail, such as a Daiquiri – see the recipe below.
- Clairin Daiquiri
- 50ml Clairin Communal
- 20ml Fresh Lime Juice
- 10ml Sugar Syrup
Pour all of the ingredients into a cocktail shaker full of ice and shake well. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass enjoy.
