Bent Anchor Poitín
AVAILABILITY: 750ml Bottles and Cocktails at Your Local Purveyor
MADE FROM: Potato cast-offs from The Anchor Fish & Chips
What do you get when you cross the baddest, bentest brewstillery in the state with a Northeast Minneapolis legend?
Bent Brewstillery and The Anchor Fish & Chips restaurant are hooking up to produce Minnesota’s very first Irish-style Poitín. Pronounced potcheen, this traditional distillation is reminiscent of Irish-style Moonshine—but by any name, it is delicious.
Rather than simply composting their mega volume of chip production cast-off peels, The Anchor owners decided (over a couple of pints) to create something a little more fun than dirt. Combining Bent Brewstillery’s artisanal distilling creativity with The Anchor’s top-quality peels results in a deliciously smooth white spirit that will have your palette dancing a jig.
Earthy and slightly smoky, this Irish-style Poitín has a full-bodied finish and just a hint of rounded sweetness. Enjoy neat or over ice and transport yourself back to the lively days of illegally crafted Irish-style Moonshine.
