When my wife and I went to Ireland for our honeymoon many years ago, we visited all of her great-aunts and –uncles. One of them knew a gentleman who made his own poteen, or craythur. I had a small glass and while it went down with a nice burn and smooth taste it also felt like I got socked in the gut. WOW! I was in love!
This great-uncle is coming to the US around St. Patrick’s Day (gee, what a shock) and I was wondering if anyone knows how difficult it would be for me to make my own to serve him. He’s 94 and I know he would get a kick out of it.
Is building and running a still hard to do? Where can I find a recipe? If it would be too hard to make my own, is there someplace I can buy some?
