The Sun Tavern’s Poitín tasting classes unleash the history and extensive tastes of Ireland’s post-illicit spirit.

Bartenders discuss the background of this premium liquid that ranges between 40-90%, before you indulge in tasting a range of the spirit neat and mixed, learning what compliments the dynamic flavours of Poitín.

Poitín returned to legality in 1997, refining standards and quality, as well as making this much-loved spirit more accessible. Our Poitín tasting sessions aim to show you the numerous benefits this potent liquid has to offer, historically and taste wise. There are 4 different kinds of Poitín presented at the tasting, which are also for sale in full bottle form from the bar, or our online bottle shop.

The Poitín tasting classes are available as gifts for individuals and small groups, however private reservations are also available for larger group bookings. Whatever the party size, our Poitín tasting sessions at The Sun Tavern highlight the rebelliousness of the souls who made the spirit what it is.
