Waterford best for poteen.
IRELAND'S prestigious Food and Wine Magazine has awarded drinks company Knockeen Hills its coveted Bouquet of the Month honour for its range of triple-distilled Irish poteens bottled in Waterford.
The range starts at 60 % Abv. and runs up to the acclaimed 90% Abv. brand. The Irish Government lifted its ban on selling poteen in March 1997 and there are currently only two legal brands of the drink in production.
