Micil Distillery has picked up the award for Best Contemporary Irish Gin for their Micil Irish Gin at the World Gin Awards 2022.
The award follows on from previous medal wins at the San Francisco Spirits Awards and the World Gin Awards.
Micil Irish Gin is made using 17 botanicals including 4 handpicked Connemara flowers & herbs; bog bean, bog myrtle, heather and hawberry. All the botanicals are macerated in their hybrid copper pot still for 12 hours prior to distillation and remain in the still throughout distillation.
This is Micil Distillery’s flagship gin product which was recently joined by Micil Spiced Orange Gin, a re-imagination of their gin recipe. Micil recently sold 110,000 bottles of the Spiced Orange Gin to the Craft Gin Club UK.
Micil Distillery co-founder Pádraic Ó Griallais said: “We’re delighted to win at such prestigious awards, judged blind by our peers in the Spirits industry, and we hope our portfolio continues to be recognised for our flavour-forward style of production. We’re honoured to be compared alongside many of the other Irish winners who have been elevating the gin category in Ireland by distilling their own unique recipes of Irish Gin.”
Micil Irish Gin is available at McCambridges of Galway, Joyces Supermarkets, The Celtic Whiskey Shop, Online at IrishMalts.com and through independent off-licences in Ireland.
