Glendalough Poitin Mountain Strength
This is the earliest drink ever to be distilled, the father of Irish whiskey and the ancient ancestor of all distilled drinks. First made by Irish monks in the 6th century in monasteries like Glendalough, it was known as the “water of life”. Outlawed in 1661 but now it’s back. Ours is triple distilled in a traditional copper pot-still using malted barley and pure spring water. Bottled at 55% for an authentic taste of Ireland’s original spirit.
Glendalough Mountain Strength poitín (pronounced "po-tcheen") is a stronger cask strength version of their signature poitín, Gaelic for "pot stilled whiskey," the original Irish "water of life." This centuries old tradition is distilled from sugar beets and malted barley, before being subtly aged in virgin oak casks.
Pungent vanilla aromas, with notes of berries on the nose. Sweet sugary flavors, berries, vegetal notes, malt, sweet vanilla, smoke, and dark fruits on the palate. The finish is bold with an alcohol burn.
