This Slick New Poitín Has Just Hit The Irish Market
Have we just found the drink of the summer?
There's something intriguing about poitín... Maybe it's the fact that it was illegal once upon a time, or maybe it's because we feel like rebels drinking something with such a high volume of alcohol. Either way, we love it.
Micil Poitín is a deadly new poitín distilled in Connemara, Co. Galway using a recipe that has been passed down through five generations of a family from Indreabháin.
This particular spirit is well a truly steeped in Irish heritage and you can tell by the sheer quality of it. A quick sniff will hit you with hints of berry, cinnamon and floral notes with a taste that is as smooth as velvet.
If you're not feeling up to drinking it neat you can try it with pink lemonade and raspberries - the perfect combination for a summer's day. And it also tastes unreal as a sour or old fashioned.
So, feeling like you fancy some Micil Poitín? You can grab a bottle of it from the Celtic Whiskey Shop.
