The history of Ireland’s first spirit, from its humble roots to its illegal production throughout the country for over 300 years.
Known as the Original Irish Spirit, Poitín was first made by monks in Ireland as early as the sixth century, long before whiskey was produced in any country. Throughout history, Poitín was at the core of Irish culture – local crafts people, and even groups of townsfolk would distill the spirit for personal consumption or to share with fellow villagers. Threatened by its inability to collect taxes on Poitín’s production in Irish homes, the British Crown criminalized the distillation of the spirit in 1661, driving Poitín underground for centuries.
