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.
