Poteen

Poteen (Poitin) is an Irish Whiskey- (anglicised as putcheen) or formerly potheen. The term is a diminutive of the word pota 'a pot'; Poitin was traditionally distilled in a small pot. For centuries, Poitin has been produced in pot-stills under the bright moon, and because of this, came to be known as 'The Shine' or Moonshine. The home-brew was strong, some brands were as strong as 80% volume (160 units), and had a distinctive dry grainy flavour with a delicate aftertaste that became sweeter as it developed. Some rural Irish people still pour it on wounds and sores as they believe it to have disinfectant properties, and with as high an alcohol volume as it has, it probably does!
