As the global market for Irish whiskey continues to grow, so does the range. An old category made new is Poitín (pronounced: ‘put-cheen’ Irish for ‘small pot'). Unaged and originally distilled using potatoes, this precursor to 'modern' whisky has a long tradition with farm folk. The domestic distillation of the spirit became illegal in 1661 and production went underground.John Ralph, co founder of Mad March explains “With the U.S. market accounting for approximately 36% of Irish whiskey sales, and craft spirits continuously growing in popularity, we feel it is the perfect opportunity to introduce the consumer to the ancient craft of Irish poitin. Our small batch, premium poitin is an extremely versatile spirit with a character as unique as its history.” Tasting note: [20ml sample] Triple distilled from a malted barley base. Rain water clear. The eclectic and intriguing assemblage of briny, yeasty, waxy, fruity, grassy and delicately bitter aromas is reminiscent of agricole rum. Semi-sweet, viscous and appealingly spicy, this evokes flavours of sour-dough and dill with a touch of caraway and anise, ending dry, minerally and vaguely herbal. A tasty new-make for vibrant cocktails. 40% Alc./Vol. Double Gold San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2018.
