Read an Excerpt

‘Potten (pronounced ‘ptcheen’) is illicit whiskey, traditionally made from potatoes, although nowadays it is often made from grain. Tucked away in the countryside are stills which no longer bubble away under a turf fire, but on a Calor Gas stove. Poteen is pretty disgusting stuff unless you get a very good brew, and it probably kills off a lot of braincells, so it’s much better to stick to the legal liquid.’
