Before there was whiskey, there was poitín, the father of Irish whiskey and an ancient ancestor of all distilled drinks.

It was first made by Irish monks in the 6th century in monasteries like Glendalough and known as "uisce beatha" {ishka baha}, "the water of life”. (A mispronounciation of the word "uisce" is where the word "whiskey" comes from).

Outlawed in 1661 but now it’s back, ours is triple distilled in a traditional copper pot-still using malted barley and pure spring water and bottled at 55% for a strong, authentic taste of Ireland’s original spirit.

Sip it neat or on the rocks for a true taste, or mix it for long drinks and cocktails with an extra kick.

Tasting Notes

Rich sultanas, exotic fruit, mango, pineapple, orange zest and marmalade.

Light and lively. Rich and rounded with raisins, dark cherry and plum notes, vanilla and sweet grains with peppercorn spice.

Dark stone fruit, oak spices and a slight nuttiness.
