Smuggling Nun Irish Poitín tasting 05/22 @ 1pm

Sunday May 22 @ 1pm
Learn about the fascinating history of Ireland’s best kept secret—and how Smuggling Nun’s story began just blocks away from the Gaelic-American Club. (Yes, a smuggling nun was involved!)
Poitín is the oldest of distilled spirits, with the first reference to in recorded history in sixth century Ireland. It is the origin of most of the world’s most popular distilled spirits, including whiskey. And now it’s the hottest new thing on the cocktail scene!
An exceptionally premium poitín, Smuggling Nun is based on Mick McIlhatton’s recipe (Google Christy Moore’s song!) and recently has been awarded multiple medals in prestigious international spirits competitions and in package design.
Producer/importer and Fairfield native Maura Clare will be on hand to offer free samples of her hooch, both neat and mixed in Dublin Donkeys—which beat the pants off Moscow Mules!
