Padraic’s grandfather Micil began distilling in 1848 and he operated the Connemara Stillhouse. In 2016 Padraic, who inherited his craft directly from his grandfather Jimmi, opened Micil Distillery in tribute to the great Micil. Padraic produces a range of poitín products made from 100% Irish grain.
They distil now the same way they’ve always done, by hand and in small batches, using local Connemara botanicals and unique family recipes. Every bottle is labelled and bottled by hand at the distillery.
A fabulous gift set containing a miniature of each of the core range Micil Distillery products: Micil Poitín, Micil Heritage Poitín and Micil Irish Gin. Each is handcrafted at the only distillery in Galway.
