MAD March hare IRISH POITíN

The Original
Irish Spirit

Forget whiskey, poitín is Ireland’s best kept secret. It’s been knocking around since the 6th century, making it the oldest spirit in the world. Mad stuff.

FACTS & Fables

First distilled by monks (God bless you lads), the Irish enjoyed their poitín for a thousand years before it was banned by the Brits in 1661. But we’re resilient feckers and poitín never really went away.

It remained part of Irish drinking culture and was given names like Cratur, Mountain Dew, Mountain Tea and Devil’s Spittle. And you always knew a man, who knew a man, that could get you a bottle. Now legal again, poitín can be found on backbars all across Ireland, instead of under the counter.

At Mad March Hare, we use only the finest, locally sourced malted barley and distill three times in small copper pot stills in the traditional way. We then cut the spirit with Irish spring water to 40% ABV resulting in a drink that is full of character and exceptionally smooth. Sláinte!

A time for reflection

My next door neighbor had just returned from attending his brother's funeral. I waited a few hours and then walked over carrying a bottle of Mad March Hare with two shot glasses. I said nothing, opened the bottle, poured the liquid into the glasses giving one to him and taking the other. Holding my glass up I said," To those in the past and to those we hold in our memories, may they live in our hearts forever,Salute."

This is just what it is supposed to be!

I've travelled to Ireland several times, each time smuggling back a bottle of Poitin. Usually in Bicardi bottle. This was long before it started to become publicly available. Then when it did, it was not a compliment to Poitin of old. It was harsh and not done with care. This has a taste that puts it way above a common moonshine. Mad March Hare has done it, this is Poitin that was most desired, what stole our hearts.

Celebration of life!

I purchased a bottle to toast a friend's passing. It is my first experience with poitin. Not going to be my last. This was smooth, rich and easy sipping. All who tasted it fully agreed. Mad March Hare is a dance on the tongue!

SMOOOOTH

I bought a bottle for myself before St. Patrick's Day and enjoyed shots with my siblings. Then I bought one for my niece as a thank-you gift for a party. This is truly a one-of-a-kind beverage with lovely historical roots for anyone with a touch of Irish in them.

Love this stuff.

I age some of it in charred oak and it becomes a very good single malt Irish whiskey.
