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!

Too small leg will fit a small child
When I first tried it the taste was pretty bold. But, I really love it especially mixed with citrus my favorite is grapefruit juice Makes a killer Bloody Mary and a screwdriver that will hammer ya to the wall (puns) this is my go to for almost everything I usually order 3+ bottles at a time when I open 3 rd I order the next round Thank You If you get a chance the YouTube videos are hysterical
Delicious! Knew it would be good, but wow!
Easy delivery and ordeing
I drink it over ice, it has a great fruity flavor. It also makes an superb Bloody Mary & Margarita!
FABULOUS!! Ordering for me and my adult kids. All love this spirit. As my daughter said, "It kicks ****!!"
So far I’m just using it as a sipping whisky. I’ve only finished a small amount, taken straight and sometimes with a beer chaser. It has a strong, pleasant flavor.
Awesome taste and a good mixer
It was really good. We haven't ever had anything like it. It was hard to place the taste, I guess that's because there is nothing else like it. Overall very enjoyable!
Cool mug especially since it’s free but is a little thin and cheap feeling but again, free mug!
Never ordered booze online but this was great! It was perfectly protected and arrived on time! Then I tasted it…..it’s delicious!!!! Going to have to buy another bottle soon!
Truly enjoyed will be ordering more.
Its a fantastic elixir which I found to be similar to American moonshine, done properly. Very enjoyable chilled or straight from the bottle!
Delicious and tasty
I drank it strait. I find it to have woody undertones and completely delicious. I'm so happy with the product and the customer service I received.
Great! Well made mug that was just right
