    More Information:
    Irish spirit Poitín (pronounced po-cheen) is one of the strongest drinks in the world with an alcoholic volume of 40-90%. It is also known as Poteen. It comes from the Irish word 'pota' which means 'pot'. We decided to get some popular branded Poitín from a local source, and see what our Irish People made of it!

        I seriously could watch these guys drink all day. It would be horrible for their health but I would be entertained. Everything has it's price.

                      6:28--Yes! Sing! Drunken bursting into song is the best! Also, I think the Irish language sounds really pretty, even if I don't understand a word of it (I'm American).

I can only imagine that she's a hard worker but loves her sneaky drops, imo I think she's from a horsy background, non chalant upper class amazing looking in a dress but could still be seen mucking in prepping the horse for show. Basically perfect and that's before she smiles. Just wow.
