Cooley Distillery has released a poitín to try to revive the fortunes of Ireland’s infamously strong white spirit, which was illegal for nearly 350 years. Made from malted and unmalted barley, the Single Pot Still Poitín is triple distilled and then bottled straight from the still at 65% abv.
With 1,800 bottles produced, the Poitín is only available at Dublin airport, Dublin’s Celtic Whiskey Shop and other specialist Irish off-licences. Cooley Distillery's managing director, John Teeling, said today (1 December): "We want to bring Poitín out from the shadows."
