A taste of Irish Spirit was established in Co. Cork.
We had a bottle of poitín in the house and I decided to use a small tin of orange pulp to make a poitín flavoured marmalade. The Local Enterprise Office was running courses on starting your own business, dealing with finances etc. I completed all of the courses and registered A Taste of Irish Spirit in July 2012. The Food Academy programme led to my product being stocked in SuperValu stores and since then, the marmalade has gone from strength to strength.
