Micil Distillery Irish Cream Liqueur for Christmas

— Awarded Best Irish Cream at the 2022 World Liqueur Awards — 

A luxurious blend of sweet Irish whiskey, rich Irish cream, and smooth Connemara poitín from Micil Distillery. Awarded Best Irish Cream at the 2022 World Liqueur Awards, Micil Connemara Irish Cream is made using Micil Irish Poitín, distilled with 100% malted Irish barley and spicy Connemara bogbean.

With notes of sweet chocolate and a sprinkling of coffee and honey, all balanced by the soft, fruity spice of Irish poitín. Perfect for Christmas gifting and entertaining.

There’s a long tradition in Ireland’s Connemara of drinks made with cream, honey and a drop of poitín, using all of the best that the land has to offer. A West of Ireland take on an Irish classic, Micil Irish Cream is made using the finest Connemara Poitín and the highest quality ingredients sourced as close to home as possible, and is produced to the original family recipe.

Poitín is Ireland’s original spirit and the precursor to modern-day whiskey. Prior to cask aging, poitín and whiskey were essentially the same spirit, separated only by the buying of a license. Banned for over 200 years by a foreign parliament, poitín was traditionally distilled from malted grains such as barley, oats, wheat and rye, using whatever was available locally or in season at the time. The word poitín means ‘small pot’ in Irish and refers to the small pot-still commonly used by illicit distillers.
