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!

This was my 4th bottle purchased. I am giving them away for Christmas gifts. Of course, I do have my own bottle!

Absolutely love ut

Very unique, smooth flavor. Love how it tastes and the different feeling you get from drinking this versus standard whiskey. I've already bought an additional bottle and the first one isn't gone yet.

Excellent spirit

We tried this about a year ago after seeing an online ad, and I wound up buying a bunch of bottles to give as gifts. The response from everyone was positive, so when a 20% off deal rolled up in Facebook, I picked up four bottles to spread the joy with the friends. It’s very smooth and clean, not harsh at all straight, and mixes well.

Whoa!

A beautiful poitín! Potent, yet tolerable. Nice to mix a fine cocktail; but, if you like a good straight shot feel free to challenge yourself! If I’d known about Mad March Hare earlier, I would have bought it without seeing it on Touch of Modern. Wow, and worth it!

What the tequila?!!

Oddly this tastes like midshelf tequila and is terrible in a margarita. Unless you like that flavor! Poitin doesn't taste anything remotely close to whiskey. It was worth knowing not to drink again. :D

Happy

I gave as a gift and support made sure they answered all my questions and went above and beyond in regards to the delivery which was very quick. My son-in-law LOVED the Irish poutin. My husband and I went to Ireland with my daughter and son-in-law. It brought back fond memories.

Pretty good and close to the commercial moonshine/while whiskey made here in Virginia. Very different afyertaste, if March Hare is 100% barley, that's probably why.

Mad March Hare

it was an experience that was totally unexpected and absolutely enjoyable. Not quite knowing how this "Irish Moonshine" was going to taste a couple of friends And I were sitting beside a firepit on the shore of Lake Ontario one evening. The lake was as still and calm giving the effect of being glass. We opened the bottle poured 3 glasses 2 fingers high toasted our fortunes and downed the Poitin. We all had the same response, it was as smooth as the lake calm surface going down.

I'm sort of hooked on the stuff

I love the poitin but I hate the fact that the new bottle holds less product for the same price.
