CIARAN – SHORTLIST MAGAZINE

Our General Manager, Ciaran, is an absolute Poitín and potato distilled spirit nerd. As a result, he was asked his opinion on new potato spirits in an issue of Shortlist magazine in winter 2014.

POITIN IRISH SPIRIT

Ciaran Duffy, of The Sun Tavern on new potato spirit

  1. Bán, £35; masterofmalt.com

“Made from grain and sugar beets, it’s reminiscent of a fancy grappa but packs more punch. A great cocktail mixer”

  1. 1512 Spirits Signature, £30; masterofmalt.com

“There’s a great story behind this involving barbershops and Italians. Lovely creaminess from the potato distil that can be enjoyed straight up.”

  1. Teeling, £28; thewhiskyexchange.com

“This one has the sweet buttery-ness of corn”

  1. Knockeen Hills, £50; thewhiskyexchange.com

“As Butler’s Irish Book says, ‘It enlighteneth ye heart, casts off melancholy, keeps back old age and breaketh ye wind.”
