Bunratty Potcheen (so called because it was distilled in small pot stills in remote areas throughout Ireland) has been praised in song and story. Since it was banned in 1661, Potcheen has been illegally distilled, in the mountains and valleys of Ireland for connoisseurs and friends to enjoy. In those mountains and valleys real experts distilled, from grain the Potcheen over peat fires using the water from nearby clear mountain streams. Taste and Savour the Bouquet of the Mountain Heather on the Moonbeam Edge that danced with Leprechauns in paradise, and recreate the Celtic magic that is Potcheen.
Bunratty Potcheen (Clear Spirit), which is made from malt, yeast, barley, water and sugar is the first since it was banned to be legally produced and bottled in Ireland. Originally distilled for its smooth extra strong sensation, you can now taste and recreate this Celtic magic with Bunratty Potcheen. It was a truly spiritual deed of the Irish long ago, when they trapped the purity and magic of nature to create, from sunshine and rain in the mountains and valleys, the most natural and original treasured Irish Spirit – “Potcheen”.
It’s unique distinctive taste, is dry and grainy with a delightfully changing aftertaste that sweetens as it develops. Also know as Moonshine or Mountain Dew, Potcheen is a fiery tipple. We recommend you drink it neat as a shot, on the rocks or with a mixer and savour this original Irish spirit. Now we know why Irish eyes are smiling!
Potcheen can also be pronounced Poteen. The Irish word for Potcheen is Poitin meaning little pot.
THE POTEEN SONG
Now learned men who use the pen have wrote your praises high
That sweet Poteen from Ireland green, distilled from wheat and rye:
Throw away your pills, it will cure all ills of Pagan, Christian, or Jew
Take off your coat and grease your throat with the real old mountain dew
