What’s shakin, cocktail fans?
Welcome to Episode 226 of The Modern Bar Cart Podcast!
This time around, we’re joined by Pádraic Ó Griallais, Founder and Director of Micil Distillery in Galway, Ireland. He and his brother have evolved and scaled a family distilling tradition that dates back to his great-great-great grandfather Micil, who produced illicit spirits on a Connemara hillside near the shores of Galway Ireland way back in 1848. These days, things look a little different for Pádraic and the team at Micil Distillery, but there’s still quite a bit to be learned about Poitín, Ireland’s native spirit, through the rich storytelling tradition of Western Ireland.
