Muff Liquor Company

Muff, Co. Donegal

In the early part of the 20th century, Philip McClenaghan farmed the bountiful soil in the fields around Greencastle, Inishowen and grew one of the finest examples of the staple we hold dear as a people - the potato.

However, Philip was no ordinary man and he didn’t do just ordinary things with potatoes. He could turn his hand to anything and one of his favourite pastimes was to use the potatoes to create his own unique style of poitín. It this fabled liquor which serves as the inspiration for the potato-based spirits produced by The Muff Liquor Company today.

Granda McClenaghan remained part of the fabric of village life up until his later years, by which stage he had passed down his stories and traditions to a new generation. His granddaughter Laura Bonner and her business partner Tom Russell now continue his storied legacy of making a product born of the land and crafted by hand. An illustration of Granda McClenaghan now rightfully adorns the back of the bottle as a tribute to that legacy...

In the beautiful place of Inishowen, Muff Liquor Company resides and is best known producing spirits using potatoes. Owned and operated by Laura Bonner and Tom Russel, the story of Philip McClenaghan lives on.
