    More Information:
    Irish spirit Poitín (pronounced po-cheen) is one of the strongest drinks in the world with an alcoholic volume of 40-90%. It is also known as Poteen. It comes from the Irish word 'pota' which means 'pot'. We decided to get some popular branded Poitín from a local source, and see what our Irish People made of it!

                    If I ever drink again, maybe if I make it to 80, I'll get a bottle of the best and drink it in memory of my Irish grandmother. Love this show and the amazing participants.

                                                    Ciara O Doherty is a beast, she's like the dream woman for mens fantasies who enjoy alcohol. I can only imagine that she's a hard worker but loves her sneaky drops, imo I think she's from a horsy background, non chalant upper class amazing looking in a dress but could still be seen mucking in prepping the horse for show. Basically perfect and that's before she smiles. Just wow.

                                                                                  Without the aging in wood barrels, alcohol has little character of its own. It's just rubbing alcohol without the poison added.
