Teeling Poitin (also known as Poteen) is a spirit launched by The Teeling Whiskey Company. The Teeling Whiskey Company have set out to make a modern, high quality Poitin in an effort to reinvigorate the original spirit of Ireland.
Teeling Poitin is an un-aged Irish spirit bottled at 61.5% Abv. In keeping with their innovative whiskies (Teeling Whiskey is finished in old rum casks and they make a Irish / Scottish Malt Hybrid Whiskey), Teeling Poitin is not made from potatoes but is a blend of 80% triple distilled grain (Maize) spirit and 20% double distilled malt spirit. The grain spirit, which is milder and mellower than the malt spirit, means the Teeling Poitin is quite palatable neat even though it is bottled at 61.5%. The grain spirit is distilled in traditional copper pot stills and the malt spirit is distilled in column stills.
