The chance to visit a sixth generation Connemara Poitín maker at work in his distillery in the City of Tribes that is Galway is a unique experience.
Micil Distillery has concentrated on producing that pure Irish spirit known as poitín.
Poitín is essentially unaged whiskey.
It was (and still is) produced illegally for many years. Thankfully Pádraic is the first of those six generations where you can see and taste this historically fine spirit without fear of prosecution!
Tasting tours are available at the micro distillery in the Oslo Bar in Galway’s popular seafront suburb of Salthill.
Casks Away looks forward to delivering you to the door of this uniquely Irish Distillery.
