Mad March Hare Poitín

Mad March Hare uses only the finest barley locally produced. As you would expect, fine Irish Poitín needs fine ingredients, most of their suppliers are farmers a few miles away, with an equally rich history of producing this key ingredient. As you might expect, their stealth supplies are made in the middle of the night.

Commonly used for the distillation of whiskey and brandy, copper barrels were first used in the production of Irish Poití.

The origin of Irish Poitín is shrouded in mystery. Poitín is a drink that comes with everything you could ever taste, including whiskey. The name Poitín (pronounced "put-cheen") is Irish for "little pot" - Poitín has traditionally been distilled in small copper pans.

Ireland's oldest alcoholic beverage was forced into the underground in 1661 by an illicit British crown who tried to tax it. However, the Irish love affair with Poitín never died and was secretly distilled for over 300 years. For centuries, these legendary distillers have shifted production to the remotest parts of Ireland to avoid the curious eyes of the law.
