Mad March Hare is a fine poitin that is crafted in Ireland using only malted barley. Copper pot stills are used (not column stills) and these contribute to the clean and crisp natured of the poitin.
The origins of Irish Poitín are shrouded in mystery. Poitín is a spirit that predates anything you’re ever likely to have tasted, including whiskey. The name Poitín (pronounced: ‘put-cheen’) is Irish for ‘small pot’ – Poitín was traditionally distilled in small copper pot stills. Mad March Hare uses only the best, locally sourced, malted barley. As you would expect, fine Irish Poitín needs fine ingredients and most of our suppliers are farmers within a couple of miles of our stills, with equally rich histories in the growing of the this key ingredient.
