Description:
2012 USA Ultimate Spirits Challange. Score 92 Points. Accolade: Excellent, Highly Recommended. IWSC Gold Medal 2003.

2003 International Wine & Spirit Competition: Gold Medal (Ireland's only 2003 spirit Gold Medal winner).

Distillate. The Traditional Irish Whey Distillate results in a totally unique and remarkably soft delivery of the spirit on the palate, and an outstanding smooth finish. Knockeen Hills has achieved outstanding provenance as they are the only Irish Poteens produced, using Irish Whey dIstilled spirit.


Colour. Clear.

Nose. Slight vanilla scented, with a hint of sweetness and a full range of light fruits including melon and citrus.

Taste. Drunk neat this triple-distilled Irish spirit provides a rich though crisp taste. With the usual range of mixers the complexity and smoothness shows through. As a replacement cocktail spirit base, its versatility is readily apparent, making an equally outstanding daiquiri, margarita, martini, screwdriver and Tom Collins.

Finish. Slightly warming and a smooth finish. The slight essence of fruits is ever present.

Profile. Clean, exceptional balance.

Overview. It has a smooth delicate flavour and can be drunk neat in moderation, with mixers, or as a cocktail base, whereby the pleasant aftertaste lingers on.

In 1997 the illegal status was removed by the Irish Government. In 2007 the EU conferred 'Geographical Indicative' protective status to Irish Poteen.

Historical Background. Irish Poteen has been produced for several centuries and for nearly the last 300 years has been referred to as Ireland's Moonshine spirit. It achieved notoriety when home production was made illegal during the reign of Oliver Cromwell, to coerce the Irish population to buy inferior Crown Whiskey which had high taxes, to pay for the English costs of its war against Ireland and its occupation.

In the 15th and 16th Century, Crown Agents, and in later times the Garda, could impose heavy fines and confiscate farm machinery where sacks of grain or barley were found that they decided were intended to be used to produce a mash and subsequently poteen. Avoiding any of these tell-tale signs that poteen was being produced and with it the risk of prosecution/fines/imprisonment, meant producers could work more freely without worry.

Therefore, as no cow was ever known to have been confiscated, hence its milk was frequently used in the spirit making process, and our poteens follow that centuries old tradition.

Kosher Properties: All contents meet the requirements for being considered Kosher, except for Passover.
