Irish Poteen/Irish poitin was recognised as a heritage based spirit in its own right and has been awarded
Protected Geographical Indicative Status (G.I.) by the EU.

However, those products made over 20 years ago, and in continuous production since then, may use an even higher strength distillate, providing an increased level of purity. Only one brand, being Knockeen Hills, is currently in this category and at least 99.9% of its spirit content is sourced direct from Ireland.

It is also the only Irish poteen/Irish poitin exclusively using Irish whey distillate, resulting in a unique very soft delivery of the spirit on the palate. All products in the range, have been awarded at least a Silver Medal (Best in Class), by the International Wine & Spirit Competition and a total of 15 medals have been won.
