Fritz Vaval is the owner of the Arrawaks distillery in Cavaillon, in the south of the country, near the beautiful beaches of Aquin. The Vaval family has owned the distillery since 1947.
Fritz, who has run the business for many years, is the owner of 20 hectares of land planted with varieties of Madame Meuze sugar cane, cultivated naturally.
The Nazon-type Clairin, which is produced from pure cane juice, is fermented naturally with wild yeast and distilled in one continuous copper column still with 10 trays and a homemade condenser made from a gasoline can.
Fritz has also aged Clairin in barrels, and the results he obtained are extremely interesting.
It is unique, but it is very funky. Reminds me of some cheap baijiu I've had in china. Taste kind of like old socks. It's too painful to sip neat and unmixable because the old sock/burning rubber taste is too strong and refuses to be muted. I've had other agricoles but this is nothing like them
