Mo Chara Passion Fruit & Mango Gin now available Exclusively at ALDI

ALDI has teamed up, once again, with Monaghan based Old Carrick Mill Distillery to introduce an exclusive small batch Irish gin to 156 stores nationwide. Mo Chara Irish Gin takes its name from the Irish language, meaning “my friend”, and is the perfect spirit to share among friends.

Mo Chara Passion fruit and Mango gin is distilled using a range of botanicals including passion fruit, mango, juniper, lemon, lime, coriander, and angelica root.

The gins pair wonderfully with any premium tonic water and make the most amazing martini, and can be complemented by half a passion fruit or a slice of mango.

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 newest gin be featured in 155 ALDI stores nationwide. We can’t wait to hear what consumers have to say once they taste the products.”

Mo Chara Irish Small Batch gins are available in 156 ALDI stores across the Republic of Ireland retailing at €19.99 (while stocks last)

Steven has created a selection of wonderful cocktails with the gins - two perfect recipes to enjoy ahead of the summer season:

Passion Fruit & Mango Martini

- 50ml Mo Chara Passion fruit and Mango gin

- 1 tbsp lime juice

Place all ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake well. Pour into a coupe glass and top with prosecco or serve with a shot of prosecco on the side.

Passion Fruit & Mango Frozen Daiquiri
