Probably not the only distillery in Haiti, but likely the only legal one in this tumultuous country. And what a great distillery it is!
Distillerie Barbancourt produces some high quality rums. Contrary to most other (former) French Colonies instead of a pot-still, they operate two collumn stills. One made of stainless steel, and the other made of copper.
The rhum is distilled at a whopping 96% abv. See this blog for a nice report on Barbancourt: http://bunnyhugs.org/2008/10/25/rhum-barbancourt-distillery-visit/
