Knockeen Hills Poteen is going down a storm with clubbers who want something a little different and, er, alcoholic - 60% in fact.

Well, it is 'triple-distilled farmers' strength', so you'd expect it to be pretty potent. Poteen (or moonshine) has been illicitly distilled in Irish homes from potatoes or grain for centuries.

But this one's bottled in Waterford and completely legal - £14.99 from Waitrose.
