O'Begley // New York, USA
Poitin is an Irish-style white whiskey. This offering from O'Begley in Pittsford, New York -- founded in 2011 -- is made from 75% New York barley, 20 % malted barley, and 5% oats, fermented with ale yeast.
WhiteDistilled from a cereal mash bill comprised of any grain(s), must age at least briefly in oak for an unspecified amount of time.
"This is an intensely aromatic white whiskey with a unique mashbill that sets it apart from many others in the market. It is very grain-forward with a lot of minerality; a very dry, assertive spirit. Poitin is not for everyone as a straight sipper, but it could find a home in cocktails or in the glasses of adventurous imbibers. "
