Poitin, (pronounced "potcheen"), is one of the oldest distilled beverages in the world. It was first made in Ireland around 584AD with expertise and reverence by Irish monks like St. Kevin. However, in 1661 it was outlawed by King Charles II, forcing poitin into the wilderness and over the next few hundred years it lived in whispered infamy, hidden in the dark cupboards of Irish households. Using the old poitin recipe passed down through generations, Glendalough has meticulously crafted this Irish mountain spirit. Glendalough starts the process by slowly fermenting the malted barley and sugar beet for over 72 hours, it is then distilled in small batches and finally the distillate is transferred in virgin Irish oak casks for aging.

Carefully crafted from an old poitin recipe using the finest sugar beets and malted barley, Glendalough Premium Poitin offers soft notes of gooseberry, blackcurrant and cracked black pepper. The creamy and mellow palate carries forward the nose with hints of fresh lychee and vanilla. Subtle notes of oak spice and dried fruit lingers in the finish.

Only adding drops of water off the still to the spirit, Glendalough Mountain Strength is a high proof poitin. The nose offers spice, oak, berried fruit, black currants and hints of lime zest. The velvety mouth-feel is complex with nuanced aromas of cracked black pepper, dried fruits, oaky vanilla and subtle notes of barley sugar leading up to warm, long finish.

Glendalough Sherry Cask Finish Poitin is a rich, full-flavored spirit which has been subjected to a secondary maturation in Spanish Sherry Casks. The result is a Poitin of striking complexity, melding sulfurous marine notes with subtle sweetness. The nose of intense fruit, vanilla and spice is accented by faint zest of orange peel, raisin, and malt. The rich, full-bodied palate displays flavors of dried apricot, roasted nuts, cracked pepper, vanilla and dried fruit. Hints of vanilla oil, toasted oak and sea salt linger through the long, warm finish.
