Clairin Rums are from indigenous cane varieties, non-hybridized, with no chemistry in agriculture. Spontaneous fermentation with no yeast selected, archaic distillation, and no filtration. Haiti is the last frontier of rum and Clairin are the true rums of Haiti. In all the Caribbean there are 49 operating distilleries, in Haiti only there are 532. Producers are everywhere, often in the middle of the sugar cane fields, mills in wood, stills and fermentation vats that are usually made of oak or mango. For many reasons, due to the lack of industrialization, processes are still ancestral and it should be considered the best cane spirit possible. Clairin is the only natural rhum in the world.
Michter’s Kentucky Straight Rye:
This drink is made from select American rye grain that is sheared to maximize the extraction of flavor from the grain. Ideal neat or in cocktails. Nut, mocha, and leather dominate the palate and nose. Begins light and semi-sweet, then turns drier.
Kate Arnold wines:
kate Arnold Wines are proudly sourced from the winemaking empires of California, Oregon, and Washington. Kate and her husband, Jean, believe that in order to produce the best wines, one must locate the finest growing locations for each varietal: Lake County in California for our Sauvignon Blanc, Oregon for our Pinot Noir, and Washington for our Cabernet Sauvignon.
Our winemaking philosophy focuses on minimal winemaking intervention to produce wines that are reflective of the region. We do not believe in modern, intrusive winemaking techniques that negatively disrupt the careful selection and sourcing for our grapes and wine. We do not put anything in our wine that we would not want to drink ourselves!
Kate, Jean, and their daughter, Leila, are committed to supporting smaller, family-owned grape growers. They believe in family companies and family-owned farms to support the consistency and quality of their wines.
Our key values are represented within each step of the winemaking process. We honor the integrity of our wines, provide full consumer transparency, take pride in our non-invasive process, are dedicated to smaller, locally owned growers, and have excellent fruit provenance, all to create quality, affordable wines that everyone can enjoy.
