Fore Valley | Irish Poitín (Moonshine)
Fore Valley Irish Poitín (Pot•een) or Moonshine as it may be known across shores, is a smooth, full-body Poitín that is distilled using premium malt barley, oats and the local spring water. This Irish Poitín is excellent neat or as the prime constituent of mixed drinks and cocktails.
Alongside the richest ingredients, Fore Distillery has an even richer history. The distillery is nestled in the shadow of the renowned seventh century Benedictine Fore Abbey in Co. Westmeath. It is from this exact Benedictine order that Fore Valley alcohols have adopted their recipes. The Gaelic word, ‘fobhair’, refers to the freshwater springs of the Fore Valley which supplies the water to expertly produce Fore Valley Irish Poitín.
The Fore Distillery is quickly becoming another “Wonder of Fore” with its welcomed new take on old favourites!
