Listen below to an amazing podcast interview with Michel and his journey in the clairin (alcohol) business in Haiti.
Export business man in Port-au-Prince who went back to his homeland in Saint-Michel, Haiti to take over his family's business at a clairin distillery - The Spirit of Haiti. If you've ever wondered how this rum is made, check out their production process (with photos!)
This is The Real Haiti. This is why I had a fire lit under me the first time I went to Haiti. And this is why I continue to blog passionately about Haiti and the amazing things happening there. Every day, hardworking people, living life in Haiti...The Real Haiti.

Have you ever considered investing in a foreign country? If you have, did Haiti ever come to mind? Chances are the negative image that the (amazing) island has, may have convinced you to stay away. It's not exactly the first place that comes to mind when thinking of opening up a manufacturing operation.
Haiti? Why not?
So, why invest in Haiti?
As mentioned in the video, Haiti is a virgin country! People are looking for work, they are available and they are willing to do it, with low turnover rates. Sound like a dream? Well, more and more companies are moving into Haiti because of the work ethic of the people, the cost of doing business and a big bonus - fiscal advantages, including tax incentives! It's also a central location, close to so many place, perfect for exporting.
