A traditional citrus sour approach using a fantastic new product Mad March Hare Poitin made most popular in the early part of the 20th century in the States. The lemon marmalade is made in house by chef Derek Marsden, “the marmalade brings a modern twist to the cocktail” Darragh Nugent.
Ireland’s oldest spirit was forced underground in 1661, by the unwelcome British crown, who tried to tax it to the hilt. However, Ireland’s love affair with poitín never died and it was secretly distilled for over 300 years. Mooney, one of Ireland’s most infamous and elusive distillers of poitín was said to be as Mad as a March Hare due to the fact that he would distill his poitín when storms and bad weather would approach, using the elements as a guise to cover up the true nature of what he was doing.
Mad March Hare poitín uses only the best, locally sourced malted barley and from there, is distilled in copper pot stills. Our award winning poitín is triple distilled which makes for a truly unique experience to all who sample.
