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!

Bought it for my Irish son in law and and capped off Thanksgiving with a tumbler full. Wives found its aroma offensive, whereas the experienced whiskey drinkers found it intriguing. Surprisingly smooth straight up, and really enjoyed it. No negative aftereffects at all. Looking forward to more tonight!
Smooth tequila like
Awesome, the Irish really got it right! Flavor is refreshing and unmatched. Mad March Hare is as smooth as the skin on my wife’s back side!
Great product, really enjoy!
I expected some heat and wasn't disappointed but I didn't expect the sweetness. Quite enjoyable, really. I haven't used it as a mixer yet, but I do recommend it.
Nice little mug. High quality. Love it!
Good shine taste. Not too powerful not too weak. Nice balance.👍
Wonderful experience! Great after taste!
I bought this as a Christmas present so it has not been opened yet
First time Poitin taste! Smooth sipping whiskey.
It was like drinking moonshine. I drank it all neat, no ice or water. It was quite good.
In September we had a Family Reunion and I brought the fixings for Irish Mules using Mad March Hare Potein; What "a grand time" was had by all. Of course, the bottle was empty so I replenished mu supply. It will be a "staple" in our cabinet.
Wonderful stuff we love it. fell in love with it when we took a trip to Ireland a few year ago.
I only use it to drink, is there a another use? Oh and impress my friends
Amazing flavor, and goes down smooth.
I purchased three bottles, one for my son in North Carolina, one for my son-in-la in Georgia, and one for myself. To date neither of them has been able to visit. The one for me will be opened when they come home, and they can take theirs back to their homes. Sooooo, I can’t give you a review yet..
