My name is Pádraic Ó Griallais, and I’m a 6th generation poitín distiller from Connemara. My family have been producing poitín here on the shores of Galway Bay for over 170 years. Micil Distillery is named in honour of my great-great-great grandfather, Micil Mac Chearra. He began distilling in 1848 right here in Connemara.

His smooth, spicy poitín quickly became legendary throughout the region. People would travel from far and wide to buy Micil’s poitín, which was made from 100% grain and infused with a local botanical, ‘bogbean’. No party, event or wedding was complete in South Connemara during the late 1800s without at least a couple of bottles of Micil’s poitín present.

Six generations and 170 years later, we continue to make spirits with the same love and care that my forefathers have always done. Micil Distillery is the first legal distillery in Galway in over 100 years. We produce a range of traditional poitíns and an award winning gin made using local Connemara botanicals. All our spirits are handcrafted here at our distillery in Galway to unique family recipes. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

In Micil’s words: “Sláinte mhaith!” (To good health)
