Irish Gin with a twist at Old Carrick Mill

“From Carrickmacross to Crossmaglen there are more rogues than honest men”.


These lines were famously documented by a local priest about an incident that took place in Carrickmacross on a Fair day.

A young man was in a bar in Carrickmacross drinking and later that day he was arrested for being drunk.

When he appeared before the court the Magistrate asked what he had to say for himself. He claimed in his defence that someone had put whiskey in his tea.

The Magistrate then proclaimed, “From Carrickmacross to Crossmaglen there are more rogues than honest men”. The famous Irish poet and novelist Patrick Kavanagh from Inniskeen, County Monaghan immortalised the saying some years later.

So whether you’re in Carrickmacross or Crossmaglen, or Newry or Warrenpoint, Old Carrick Mill has the perfect Christmas gift.

Old Carrick Mill is an artisan Distillery operating from an old flour mill dating back over two centuries. 

It lies quietly nestled into the rugged landscape of Ireland’s Ancient East in Carrickmacross, County Monaghan.

Old Carrick Mill Distillery uses age old Irish traditions combined with modern efficiency to create a product steeped in Irish heritage and unique flavors.

The spirits are handcrafted by their master distiller using only the finest, carefully selected ingredients fused with naturally filtered spring water which flows through the famous limestone of County Monaghan.

It slowly and gently collects its unique flavour from carefully selected ingredients such as juniper, pear, and cucumber amongst others to create a fresh, smooth flavour profile that promises to truly captivate the taster, an experience that can only be relieved by another sip.

The award-winning gin is distilled in small batches of less than 500 liters and is the first Distillery in Co.Monaghan in 157 years.
