1) Micil Poitin
Micil is distilled in Galway's first legal distillery in 100 years. Pádraic Ó Griallais is a 6th generation poitín maker and has named Micil in honour of his great-great-great grandfather who was famed for producing the best moonshine in the area. The distillery uses 100% grain along with a local botanical called Bogbean. The Bogbean is said to add a little spice to the honey and grain flavours in the poitín. This versatile spirit can be enjoyed straight like a whiskey, in cocktails or over ice with your favourite mixer.

4) Teeling Spirit Of Dublin Poitín
Distilled at the Teeling Distillery in the Liberties area of Dublin. Spirit of Dublin has been made using a 50/50 mix of unmalted barley and malted barley. It can be compared to an unaged Single Pot Still whiskey but being a new spirit it has a character all of its own. On its release, this was the first new release of a spirit to be made in Dublin for 125 years and marked a return of distilling to the Liberties area which was once full of breweries, distilleries and tanneries. This poitín can be drunk straight but also works very well in cocktails and Irish coffees.
