MoChara Irish Pink Grapefruit Gin back in stock at Aldi!

I'm delighted to hear that Old Carrick Mill Distillery have renewed their contract with Aldi for 2021, OCM from Carrickmacross supplies Aldi with MoChara Irish Pink Grapefruit Gin

Aldi has announced the renewal of it's contract with Old Carrick Mill Distillery from Carrickmacross, Co.

Monaghan, to supply 145 stores nationwide with its MoChara Irish Pink Grapefruit Gin. The popular Irish gin is on sale in all stores nationwide from today, 15th March for €19.99/500ml.

The good news doesn't end there, with the Distillery also signed on to supply Aldi with a soon to be revealed new product, launching later this year in August. Something definitely worth keeping an eye on!

Steven Murphy, Founder and Master Distiller at Old Carrick Mill said:

“Working with Aldi has been fantastic and we got to create and distil our MoChara Irish Pink Grapefruit Gin

which has been well received all over Ireland. It’s perfectly balanced with a hint of sweet, the ideal gin to

share with a friend once restrictions allow!”

Old Carrick Mill Small Batch Distillery is based in the rugged landscape of Co. Monaghan. Drawing on the

limestone filtered water and the years of crafting spirits, the master distillers use hand-selected botanicals like Juniper, Angelica Root and the star of the show Pink grapefruit to create MoChara gin. These botanicals are slowly distilled, then hand bottled and labelled, all in Co. Monaghan.

The Old Carrick Mill Distillery has also been praised for its donation of over €500k worth of hand sanitiser to the local community during the height of the Covid 19 pandemic, in 2020 Old Carrick Mill Distillery converted 100% of its capacity to the production of hand sanitiser, recognising the demand in the local area. The team worked around the

clock to formulate a safe and effective product that they then made available to people and organisations in

need within their community.

Over 25 organisations received hand sanitiser including; NCBI , ICAN Irish Childrens Arthritis Network, Navan Soup Kitchen, Feed Our Homeless, Irish Wheelchair Association, Sleep Out Cavan, Caring Angels - Castleblayney. Unbelievable gesture, showing just how big the heart of this Distillery is.

MoChara Irish Pink Grapefruit Gin can be enjoyed any way you see fit! A great serving suggestion is 35ml of MoChara Pink Grapefruit Gin, 100ml of Tonic Water over Ice, topped with dried Pink Grapefruit. If you want something a little sweeter, try adding Elderflower Tonic with Raspberries and Mint.

I'm a huge fan of these guys, with some already fantastic Gins on the market Stephen has worked hard building this small Company up to achieve big things, and 2021 is very exciting for them, especially with the plans in place for quarter 3. Old Carrick Mill have been fantastic in their efforts to help out in the hard times, I'm sure that as the old saying goes, "what goes around, comes around" and the future will be very bright for these guys. If you’re looking for a refreshing Gin at a fantastic price, get yourself down to Aldi and pick up a bottle of MoChara. Let the guys know if you pick one up, tag them on Instagram and spread the good word!
