1. It's pronounced, 'puut-cheen.' Not, 'potion!' 2. Legend has it, if you're hungover on poitín, don't drink water (it will just make you drunk again!) 3. We're serious about #2. Apparently, it has something to do with how dehydrated poitín can make you the morning after. Or maybe the alcohol crystalizes in your stomach and the water melts it. We don't know. We've consulted a number of Irish gaffers on this and they all have different stories. 4. Rubbing it on your joints can apparently ease arthritis. 5. Leave it alone long enough, and it'll clean anything. 6. Add some ice or a bit of water to avoid blacking out too fast. Or drink it straight. You'll learn your lesson quick enough. 7. Connoisseurs say to avoid the stuff made at distilleries and sold in grocery stores. If you can find it brewed the old way-- by someone's unlicensed uncle or brother, in the mountains, in a small, copper pot on a rainy day-- do it. You might not remember you night on poitín, but you can always say that you did it the right way.
We bought the tree of life bourbon barrel as a guest book for our wedding. It hangs on our wall now and it’s absolutely beautiful! Such a happy item to have great memories!
This was amazing! My daughter loved it and everybody thought it was a great idea as a wedding registry! We added a glass top so it may be used for years to come with the memory of their special day.
Craftsmanship was fantastic.
Thank you all for your thought process in making this! Very unique!
These tables were great. I got them two years ago, not sure why I am getting 100 emails about writing more reviews, but I really loved them and recommend them for anyone looking for a cool idea for a guest book at their wedding!
Originally bought as a guest book but I didn’t want my guests to ruin it’s beauty. So I kept it as a wall decor in my home without a bunch of dumb signatures :)
