Galway’s Only Working Distillery, www.MicilDistillery.com
Micil Distillery is the first distillery in
Galway in over 100 years. It’s headed up
by Pádraic Ó Griallais, a 6th generation
distiller passionately continuing a 170
year old family tradition.
The distillery traces its roots back to
1848, when Pádraic’s great-great-great
grandfather, Micil Mac Chearra, began
producing poitín in Connemara.
We distil now the same way we’ve always
done; by hand in small batches, using
local botanicals, unique family recipes and six generations of craft experience.
During a tour of Micil Distillery, you’ll learn the real history of poitín, whiskey and gin,
how they’re made, and what makes our own products so unique.
You’ll experience the sights, sounds, smells, and tastes of a working distillery, and hear
some interesting, funny and daring stories. You’ll get to taste for yourself the products
we continue to make in a time-honoured tradition. Our tours/tastings are a unique
experience not to be missed.
Tours, tastings and Distillery experiences available most days.
