  • adj. distilled


Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • The Lord forgive me, Mr. Hycy -- no, I only wished to say forswear -- not the poteen -- but any connection wid the illegal alembic from which it is distillated, otherwise they will walk off wid the 'doublings,' or strong liquor, leaving you nothing but the residuum or feints.
