Etymology: Irish poitín 'little pot'.
- Illegally produced Irish whiskey; moonshine, made using potatoes. It is a clear liquid like vodka or gin as opposed to the traditional colour of whiskey or scotch. The same product has been legalized in some circumstances, but it typically refers to the illegal brew.
