A presentation on the History and Heritage of Poitin.
Almost everyone in Ireland has a poitin story, they once tasted it, or know someone who knows someone who makes it, it is an intrinsic part of our cultureand for an illegal product poitin is well known in this country, (or is it?) in this presentation I will be looking at the history and heritage of Poitin. I spent three years researching the ‘Rare aul stuff’ for my Dissertation, and managed to record interviews with Three elderly men, for their personal accounts.
My presentation will look at aspects of what poitin is, how it was made, why it became illegal. I will also look at poitin and the law, and the church.
