Whiskey Wednesday – November – Bán Poitín

Whiskey Wednesday - November - Bán Poitín

In November of 2016, for The Sun Tavern’s ever changing Whiskey Wednesday collaboration, the lads and Dave Mulligan of Bán Poitín got their heads together and came up with a slightly more alternative Whiskey Wednesday offer given that ‘Poitín Day’ falls on the 18th.

Instead of the lads behind the bar here in TST getting their hands stuck in to concocting some new liquids, Dave Mulligan called across to the London alliance of Irish bartenders to externally create some delightful cocktails using the white Irish Spirit, Bán Poitín.

These willing boys did us proud, starting with Chris Pawer (@pawarsie89) of The London Edition Hotel’s famous Punch Room (@punchroomLDN) with.
