The Muff Liquor Company is a premium craft potato-based spirit company hailing from the village of Muff, County Donegal Ireland. Its products include new spirits, Muff Gin and Muff Vodka which are produced with a potato base made from four different types of Irish potatoes, distilled 6 times, to create a clean and creamy texture and both spirits are gluten free and suitable for vegans.
The use of potato spirit was inspired by founder Laura Bonner’s grandfather, who was a well-known Irish potato farmer with a penchant for making his own poitín.
