Kick Summer Off with Mo Chara Irish Gin Cocktails

Old Carrick Mill Distillery, creators of the Aldi exclusive Mo Chara Irish Gins, have created 2 refreshing cocktails with their Pink Grapefruit Gin and Irish Pineapple Gin, a twist on the Pink Lady cocktail and a wonderfully fresh cocktail with the pineapple gin


Speaking on the partnership of Old Carrick Mill with Aldi Ireland, Steven Murphy (founder of Old Carrick Mill Distillery, Co Monaghan), commented: “We have worked with the Aldi team for several years, and we continue to be impressed by their support of artisan Irish producers. With the support of Aldi, our small batch gins have been able to reach a larger target audience and we are delighted to see our Irish Pink Gin and Irish Pineapple Gin reach the shelves of 150 Aldi stores nationwide. We can’t wait to hear what consumers have to say once they taste the products.”
