Super premium, bespoke triple-distilled Irish Poteen.
13 International Awards achieved after nearly 25 years production
The family-owned Knockeen Hills Irish Poteen brand was first produced in 1996 and on the 7th March 1997 it became the first licensed for sale on mainland Ireland. In 2003 it was awarded THE GOLD MEDAL for Irish Poteen by the International Wine & Spirit Competition, and in 2012 at the USA Ultimate Spirits Challenge it was awarded the accolade: EXCELLENT, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED with a score of 92 Points. All the brand’s poteens have won a minimum Silver Medal (Best in Class) by the IWSC; with a tally of 13 medals awarded. It is the only Irish Poteen to meet EU Technical File regulations allowing distillate over 94.7% volume, and uses Irish whey spirit, identical to a well-known premium Irish cream spirit.
No other Irish Poteen has achieved such provenance in independent non-sponsored trade competitions.
*Currently, only TheDrinksShop stock our highly collectable 5cl miniature glass bottles.
A selection of other products are available on Master of Malt including:

About our Irish Poteen
The spirit category 'Irish Poteen/Irish Poitin' was accorded 'Geographical Indicative' status by the EU, and formally adopted by Regulation of the EU Commission, Parliament and Council in June 2007. The only two other Irish spirit drinks to be awarded G.I. status are Irish Cream and Irish Whiskey.
Knockeen Hills products continue to exclusively use traditional Irish Whey distillate produced at 96% vol. which provides an unrivalled smooth delivery of the spirit on the palate, and no after-taste, which sets out our quality products, apart from all other Irish poteens. For the technically minded, the clear clean, transparent distillate in Knocken Hills consists of only a minute amount of congeners at 240 parts per million!
TheDrinkshop has in stock 1lt., 70cl., 50cl., and 5cl. miniatures bottles of our Gold Extra-Strength 90% vol. together with the 70cl., 50cl., and 5cl. miniatures of our 70% vol. Gold Strength, and 60% vol. Farmers Strength. The Master of Malt has in stock currently all three strengths in the 70cl. and 50cl. size bottles and their 3cl. samples.
We unreservedly recommend the integrity of both online retailers who also deal directly with trade customers.
