Poitín (pronounced pot-cheen) is the oldest spirit in the world, first distilled by Irish monks in the 6th century. Outlawed by the British in 1661, poitín was driven underground but remained an important part of Irish drinking culture and was found at any celebration worth attending.
Today, poitín is legal once again and can be seen on back bars 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 style. We then cut the spirit with fresh Irish spring water to 40% ABV resulting in a drink that is full of character and exceptionally smooth. Sláinte!

The tastiest Irish Poitín,
but don’t take our word for it…
Really cool, good quality!
The flavor profile on this spirit is unique and rich. Bought two, one as a gift.
It is perfect, and so old school, sitting by the peat fire- Irish. Love it!
We love this Poitin. It is smooth going down, and then you get the heat. Tastes yummy!!!!
Love it! Like it best on the rocks. No need to mix it with anything.
Awesome, very tasty!!
I found it has a smooth taste, not biting like most. This is something I would like to share, when entertaining guest. Very nice!
I so enjoyed the taste and smoothness of your product ! I will recommend it to my friends!
Overall I thought it was very smooth and had good flavor. I just can't seem to get past the nose it just doesn't match what I would expect. To me the nose is similar to Tequila combined with Vodka. I tried using it in a mule but again the nose just didn't work for me. Keeping it in the freezer and pouring it on ice is the only way I've found to enjoy this spirit.
It's all good! Bought a bottle for my friends and son. They have been enjoying and have tried several of the drink recipes that were included. Thanks for the quick delivery! Sláinte
Great service and a wonderful product
I like mine straight up. Great for shooting or sipping!
Cool artwork. Tun cups are the best!
Wasn’t sure how much I would like a non-corn based shine. This barley based offers a great flavor. Love it!
This whiskey is light but very delicious. I plan on purchasing more.
