"The wine is called "Pog Mo Thoin" - the old Irish phrase for "kiss my ass" - but there is a french twist to it.
On the average bottle of wine, the indented base is known as the 'ass of the bottle', explains Vincent.
The drawing on the front of this new wine is of an Irish leprechaun kissing the base of a wine bottle, thus 'Kissing the ass' of the bottle." writes Catherine Halloran from the Irish Daily Star.
