Bán Poitín

Bán Poitín

70cl | 48% ABV | Ireland

A tasty Irish treat - Bán Poitín's name is a play on words, Bán means white in Gaelic (as in white spirit, this is quite similar to whiskey) while ‘Ban’ in English is a reference to Poitin's illicit past.

Very similar to ‘new make’ whiskey but Bán Poitín is more combines the familiar bready Rye notes with more hay-like character. The spice grows (cinnamon toast, clove and white pepper). Try it in a twist on the Negroni or as a Boilermaker.
