Bán in old Irish means “white” and as the white Irish spirit, it’s fitting that we assume it as our name.

Tasting Notes


Sour cream and cinnamon toast to start, with rich bready notes underneath – freshly sliced white bloomer and heavy German rye. The yeasty, bready notes grow, accompanied by black-pepper spice and sweet lemon cream.


Oily in texture and laden with sweet spice off the bat – cinnamon toast, clove and mace. Creaminess builds, with sweet milk chocolate and milky coffee balanced by underlying barrel-char and coffee-ground bitterness.


Creamy and clean, fading quickly to leave a hint of lemon Fondant Fancy.


Drink it like you would your whiskey.

“Traditionally inspired, modernly made. At Bán we dare to transform the genius of poitín to represent the next generation of Irish cocktail culture.”

Dave Mulligan, founder of Bán and owner of BAR 1661, Dublin.
