Produced at the Echlinville distillery in County Down from potatoes, malted barley and sugar beet, this is the country's traditional spirit. Enjoy it neat or in your favourite cocktail.Tasting Notes (1)
Tasting notes by Billy A
Sour cream, cinnamon toast and plasticine to start, with rich bready notes underneath – freshly sliced white bloomer and heavy German rye. The yeasty, bready notes grow, accompanied by black-pepper spice and sweet lemon cream.
Oily in texture and laden with sweet spice off the bat – cinnamon toast, clove and mace. Creaminess builds, with sweet milk chocolate and milky coffee balanced by underlying barrel-char and coffee-ground bitterness.
Creamy and clean, fading quickly to leave a hint of lemon Fondant Fancy.
Spicy and complex, with rich creaminess and carefully balanced sweetness.
A lovely poitin which my friend got me for Christmas. Definitely worth a buy.
An excellent Poitin with a great character
As someone who grew up on poitin from the gaeltacht, have been sceptical of legal poitins but this is close to real poitin as i found, this has good taste with a woody barrel after taste and recommend drank neat or is ideal poitin for hot punch/toddy. Would definitely purchase again.
superb! ...subtle potato and wet straw undertones come through when water is added ...smooth and moorish!
Really taken back with the complexity, quality & length on the palate. A real soft, subtle delight & not was I was expecting at all. 1 year after first trying it I was in a position to taste it with the producer. He recommends pairing melon with it! I'm in the drinks industry & have tasted 1,00's of spirits. This is the best quality poitin I have tasted on the market. Well worth the money. Available cheap at Brahms & Liszt, Chatsworth Rd, Hackney.
