Crisp and refined, with prominent hints of hot wasabi and spicy white pepper, smoke on the nose and touches of green banana and briny green olive, Saint Benevolence was founded by Calvin and Chase Babcock as a means of merging their love of rum with the charitable endeavors the father-son team have brought to the island nation of Haiti over the last four decades, in partnership with Reverend Gueillant Dorcinvil, a Saint Michel native.

Working closely with longstanding nonprofit partners Innovating Health International, Ti Kay and Living Hope Haiti, Saint Benevolence is dedicated to dramatically improving the quality of life for people living in the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Every sip of Saint Benevolence rum clairin directly funds life-changing medical services, educational programs and economic developments benefitting the people and local communities of Northern Haiti.

As Haiti’s premium ancestral sugarcane spirit, Saint Benevolence Rum Clairin is grown in the fertile soils and tropical climate of Saint Michel de l’Attalaye. Fermented for 5-7 days, this single batch spirit is distilled in a handmade pot still fired by sugar cane waste as biofuel. This method hasn’t changed vastly from the French techniques of the 18th century – it’s an artisan process rich with history, skill and expertise, meaning Saint Benevolence truly bottles the purest essence of both Haiti’s unique terroir and the tradition of Saint Michel.
