Muff Gin is distilled by the Muff Liquor Company in Ireland's County Donegal

Both it, and sister brand Muff Vodka, are made from four types of Irish potato which are distilled six times.

Muff Gin is made with nine botanicals, including angelica and Champagne essence. It is said to have plenty of zesty citrus flavours, a hint of elderflower and a kick of spice before a bittersweet mandarin finish.

Muff Vodka has a clean and creamy texture with great viscosity and a hint of vanilla.

Both spirits are gluten free and suitable for vegans and will be launched into the UK market this month with a pop-up bar at the London Irish take-over of Camden Market, which forms part of the official Mayor of London's St Patrick's Festival. It will run from Saturday 14 - Sunday 15 March 2020.

The Muff Liquor Company was founded in 2018 by Laura Bonner, the granddaughter of a potato farmer who ‘had a passion for making poitin with potatoes'.

'Our first UK pop-up is a huge opportunity for us to showcase our products to a new audience,’ she said.

‘We hope to bring some great craic and cocktails to the market's Irish celebrations and give Londoners a taste of Ireland with our traditional craft potato inspired gin and vodka recipes with a modern twist.'
