There was an old farmer here in Ireland who was making Poteen and the new sergeant raided his yard and found his still, which was empty at the time.

The farmer ended up before the magistrate and the sergeant said they found a still so he must be making poteen. The farmer stood up and told the judge that he might as well prosecute him for rape too.

When the judge asked "why" the farmer replied "sure haven't I the equipment for that too, but it doesn't mean I done it." 

He was acquitted and believe it or not, that's a true story.

their is a great film called poitin starring mick lally, cryil cusack and neil tobin its a short irish film but well worth a watch,theirs a scene in the film where they wanted to make a pub scene real so they fed the locals drink for a few hours,then enter neil tobin into the pub acting the boyo the locals didnt know what was going on as they were kept out of the loop as to what was happening in the scene,a few of the locals went for him as he was going off on an very old man in the pub starring cyril cusach. gret movie.

I've seen it. The Irish RM was also another great series that showed plenty of Poteen making. Especially the one where the local Magistrate seen a man ( Neil Tobin) coming out of a field in the rain and asked what he was doing ? The man said he was burning sticks, hence the smoke.The magistrate gave him a lift into the court house. In court, the magistrate asked the arresting officer how did he catch the man making potteen ? The constable said that he seen the smoke from the still on a rainy day when most lads make it to keep the smoke down.

Still a trick used today.
