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…
Had a small gathering to celebrate and toast St *****'s day.It was a hit with all !
TOO DELIGHTFUL...IT arrived on time, was flawless in the detail...(of the ad on FB() My friend for whom I purchased the MARCH HARE was INDUBITABLY IMPRESSED...After all, he IS AN IRISHMAN THROUGH and THROUGH and has ENJOYED, LOVED, ADMIRED the TASTE and the BOTTLE EVERY EVENING. THANK YOU FOR THE AD ///IT ARRIVED AT JUST THE RIGHT TIME FOR ME TO ORDER IT FOR A PRESENT CAROLE PRIOR
Without getting into the ongoing debate about what does and does not constitute a true Irish Poitin, I will simply say that this rivals any Appalachian moonshine, which any cultured person knows is a direct descendent of poitin, that this Scots Irishman has ever imbibed, and I have had some pretty good shine. Try it at different temperatures to enjoy its full spectrum of flavors.
I bought 3 bottles originally. I intended to give one to a friend. By the time I saw him I had finished 1 of mine & ordered 3 more for me to keep! That's how much I liked it.
I bought this for my sons and they were both very impressed with the quality and flavor of Mad March Hare potential. High praise since we are Tennesseans and they both know their “spirits” well.
it was delicious didnt last very long
Very easy to order and fast delivery! This Irish Poitin is warm and so smooth! We love it!
Bought as gift for friend. He loved it!
Good, had to reorder!
Prior to the 19th century, whiskies were unaged, and ***** straight from the still. So poitín represents the last vestige of what the whiskies of the Gàidhealtachd of old would have tasted like. Though I’ve mostly seen people discussing using this as a mixer, so far I’ve only had it neat. It has a delightful, clean flavor, with a hint of malt. If I were to compare it to any other drink I’d experienced before, I’d say it’s like a sake with many times the kick! I turn out to living history events as a 18th century Highland Jacobite, and dabble as a 16th century Gallowglass, and I look forward to having a couple of drams of Mad March Hare to put me in the mood. As the old proverb says: Two drams - your body will be the better from it, and your soul none the worse.
Good for using in a mixed drink. Comparable to a good vodka.
Tastes like ouzo.
This is a very useful and cool mug. I use it all the time.
I saved it for St. Patrick's day and poured it over ice. It is smooth and delicious. Equally fine with ginger ale for a refreshing glass. I would like to get more as gifts for my jealous friends
