2006 International Wine & Spirit Competition. SILVER Medal (Best in Class). Traditional Irish Whey Distillate solely used.

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. Densely fruity, immediately attractive and appealing citrus zest mingles with summer fruit aromas. At various times melon, pear drops, grape fruit, raspberry and boiled sweets emerge.

Taste. With plenty of water this makes a refreshing long drink. Drunk neat, this exceptionally very high volume quadruple distilled Irish spirit naturally provides an overwhelming kick and is certainly not recommended to ever take it in this fashion! However, when substantially diluted with the usual range of mixers the complexity is overwhelming, as is the case, when used as a substitute cocktail spirit base. It is truly in a category of its own.

Flavour: Warming and peppery, the initial shock subsides and a balanced fruitiness shows through. With water the middle taste is longer and reveals more fruit.

Finish. Long lingering and warming, with a dry and spicy tail.

Overview. It has all the characteristics of old fashioned Irish Poteen and would be appreciated by pureists. Like the less strong poteens in this range, it is remarkably smooth very versatile in making smooth cocktails and has no 'after taste' burn.
