What is Poitín?
Irish Poitín is an unaged clear distilled spirit, believed to be the first potable spirit in the world. Irish Poitín must be made on the island of Ireland and cannot be aged in barrels. The liquid must sit between 40-90% abv (80-180 proof).

What other spirits does it taste like?
We have heard the flavour profile of Mad March Hare compared with tequila, whiskey and everything in between. As it is the oldest spirit in the world, it is the inspiration to pretty much everything else but Irish Poitín is very much its own thing.
How about the tasting notes?
Mad March Hare has a silk and creamy texture, over-layered with dried fruits, vanilla and French toast. On the back, there is a long brimming taste full of character which is unexpectedly smooth.
Is this moonshine?
The story of Irish Poitín has some similarities to moonshine in that both were at one point illegal to produce. However Irish Poitín was being made and enjoyed in Ireland for 1,000 years before it was outlawed in 1661 so the comparison is a little unfair.
