Chelo Distillery Saint Michel De L'Attalaye Haiti
Sugarcane Juice Rum
. . . . To get to the Chelo distillery, it is necessary to take a long road from Port-au-Prince to Gonaive and then Ennery and then one hour of dusty road. Arriving at Saint-Michel de l?Attalaye, on the central plateau at 450 meters above sea level, one finds a magnificent natural enclave surrounded by untouched mountains, safe from the cyclones of the North. Chelo?s owner Michel Sajous is the third generation distiller and in 2004, he built a new small distillery in the middle of a 30 hectare plantation. Surrounding the distillery grows many different varieties of cane-- among which we rediscovered the long lost Cristalline variety. Here the agriculture is absolutely organic. The harvest takes place between December and August, handcut with machetes. The canes are then transported to the distillery with help of mules with two loaded bags each.
Clairin Sajous is a pure expression of the Cristalline sugarcane growing on mountainous soil. Fine herbaceous notes come through with vibrant energy, a celebration of the perfection of distillation and raw material. Try it on its own or mixed in a reimagined classic cocktail like a negroni or daiquiri that showcase the purity of spirit.
