Signature poteen cocktails

The producer of Knockeen Hills Irish Poteen supports the Portman Group's new policy in the UK, to no longer allow any alcoholic beverage to be marketed as 'slammers' or 'shooters', which is designed to curb 'down in one' drinking.

Knockeen Hills Irish Poteen ® is an ideal cocktail base and can be simply substituted for bacardi, gin, tequila, vodka or whiskey in any cocktail recipe.
