International Poitín Day at The Sun Tavern

The Sun Tavern restaurant east London pub bar

Move aside Tequila, you’re no longer our shot of choice: Poitín (pronounced ‘po-cheen’) is a traditional Irish moonshine-style spirit, and The Sun Tavern in Bethnal Green is celebrating its conception as part of International Poitín Day.

From 6pm on Friday 18 November, The Sun Tavern will be giving out free shots of the good stuff from its stash, which is the largest (legal) collection in the world. The Sun Tavern also won Imbibe’s Whisky Drinks List 2016 award for its selection of over 100 Irish whiskies, so you know the craic is going to be good.

If you can’t make it for free shots on 18 November, book yourself into one of the free Poitín masterclasses, taking place every Wednesday throughout November – just call 020 7739 4097.
