MOURNE DEW DISTILLERY THE POOKA IRISH POITIN FLAVOURED WITH HAZELNUT
The Hazelnut. It is made with the wheat spirit with a small amount of malted barley triple distillate added. The spirit is cold distilled with fresh, ground hazelnuts to produce a hazelnut distillate. The sweetness comes from maple syrup (This gives a better mouth feel than sugar syrup and also gives some natural colour to the product).
The three main flavours in the drink are hazelnut, poitin notes and maple.Try it as chilled as a digestif, over crushed ice, with a splash of cream liqueuer, in a coffee, with ginger ale or ginger beer or any other mixer you might prefer. If you're into cooking it makes a superb tea loaf.
