Poit Dhubh, pronounced “potch ghoo” and literally meaning “black pot”, is also the Gaelic term for an “illicit still” which traditionally were the source of some of the most revered whiskies.

It is a fine unchilfiltered malt at 43%, partly matured in sherry casks with a soft graceful flavour and a trace of peatiness.

Poit Dhubh, 8 Year Old was the winner of the silver medal (best in class) at the 2008 International Wine & Spirit Competition and the bronze medal at the 2009 International Spirits Challenge.
