Traditional Poitín - Batch 2
Every glass of whisky begins its life as poitín [potcheen]. Meaning “little pot”, poitín is an un-aged Irish-style spirit; made from entirely Canadian grain and double-distilled in our copper pot, the traditional way.
Having spent no time in a cask this smooth, colourless spirit does not yet have the caramel, oak, or vanilla flavours that come from the aging process. This means that the spirit is purely a showcase of what the grains have to offer. Our grains are entirely farmed between Kanata and Pakenham and include malted barley, unmalted barley, corn, and a unique hulless oat - bred at Ottawa’s Experimental Farm by Dr. Vern Burrows in 1958.
Nose: hay, cut grass, malt
Palate: bran, oatmeal
Sip over ice or serve in lieu of vodka to add a biscuity essence to your cocktails. Makes an excellent Caesar, especially when infused, and is also possibly the best spirit to put in root beer!
