Poitín predates whiskey and nearly every other spirit in the world. This is Ireland’s original spirit, distilled from surplus potatoes and grains left over after the harvest. The history behind this spirit is inextricably linked to the history of Ireland and in recent years we have seen a resurgence of poitin-makers refining the spirit for the palettes of the 21st century.
Our experts say: Bán Poitín is one of the best spirits we have tried in the Poitín range and is a wonderful base for cocktails and mixed drinks.
