The weather has turned. One of our own recipes, this will bring a smile back to your face.

Glendalough Irish Coffee



Glass: Irish Coffee Glass



50ml of Glendalough Poitín

Rich black coffee to reflect the dark history of poitín.

Honey to enhance the malted barley sugars and Irish sugar beet.

Cream to compliment the smooth, oak-aged finish.

Cinnamon to bring out the spicey notes of Ireland ’s original and oldest spirit, poitín.



Firstly, place a metal spoon in the glass and pour in some hot water to warm. Prepare your coffee, for best results use freshly ground coffee beans and a french press. When the coffee is ready, pour out hot water from your glass and add in the honey and coffee. Stir, and once the honey has dissolved add the poitín. Top with *cream by pouring it over the back of a spoon to make sure it settles and finally, spinkle with a pinch of cinnamon.

This one will defenitely warm you twice.

*Extra tip: Grate some orange rind to the cream and give it a gentle whisk to infuse before adding to the coffee.
