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). Generally unaged except in the US, where it must age at least briefly in oak for an unspecified amount of time. Sometimes sold as "moonshine" although that is a misnomer.
"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. "
