Old Carrick Mill Gin 700ml
- Stock: 2
This Gin hails from the town of Carrickmaccross in Co. Monaghan. There is an old saying from the area which goes ‘ from Carrickmacross to Crossmaglen, there are more rogues than honest men.’ It stems from an incident where a young man was up before the local Magistrate for being drunk .
When questioned, the man man claimed that someone had slipped some whiskey into his tea, to which the Judge replied ‘from Carrickmacross to Crossmaglen, there are more rogues than honest men.’ Patrick Kavanagh immortalised the saying in a later poem.
This Gin is named after the incident and poem from Kavanagh, who was from Inniskeen, Co. Monaghan.
