Micil Cocktail Masterclass

Tour Overview

Our cocktail masterclass is a hands-on ninety minutes of pure fun, and a great start to any evening out. You’ll begin by mixing your own complimentary G&T, while hearing a brief history of gin and poitín, how they’re made, and how we do things differently at Micil. You’ll learn about various types of botanicals, and how they influence the flavour of the spirits you drink. You’ll then jump into the really fun part, with an interactive mixology class. We’ll teach you some real-life bartender secrets as you get to plan, create and mix two signature cocktails of your very own, using gin and poitín made right here at Micil Distillery.

All this takes place in Micil’s private visitor centre bar, overlooking our working distillery. It’s a fun, interactive class that includes your three full-size drinks at no extra cost, and is an amazing way to kick-start a night out with friends.
