Distillery Arawaks was built after the second war by father, Danois Vaval in the southern village of Cavaillon. Today Fritz has 20 hectares of the sugarcane variety called Madame Meuze, grownnaturally without the addition of chemical fertilizers or pesticides. The cane is cut by machete andtransported by mule to be pressed in a small mill.
Wild fermentation lasts around 5 days without adding water or artificial substances. The distillate is made ina unique pot still that is very different from any other because Fritz built it himself. His still is unusual in that it is powered by steam, produced by a steam engine of an old locomotive train, powered fueled by burning bagasse. Two distillations are done per day, eachlasting around 10 hours and coming off the still at 45%to 55% ABV.
