About Micil Distillery


Micil Distillery is named in honour of our great-great-great grandfather, Micil Mac Chearra, who began distilling poitín in 1848 on a Connemara hillside. For six generations and over 170 years our family have preserved the craft, distilling extraordinary spirits made using family recipes, craft knowledge and time-honoured techniques.


In 2020 we commenced whiskey production at Micil, laying down Galway’s first legal spirit in over a century. While our own whiskey matures we’ve released a series of Micil Whiskeys, using spirit sourced, finished and independently bottled by Micil, and inspired by the historical ‘fuisce’ distilling traditions of Galway City and Connemara. Finished in our own casks, these whiskeys reflect the style of ‘Galway Whiskey’ that we’re reviving at Micil, and are a small taste of what’s to come
