Dusty O’Neills is a premium service cocktail bar ideally situated in the heart of Carrickmacross, Co. Monaghan. Customer service and satisfaction is our top priority, followed by ensuring that our cocktails are of top-class quality.
In the past year, we have added a Gin and garnish bar to our public house which hosts over 20 gins.
Old Carrick Mill Gin is best served with pear and blueberries. To keep in line with branding, we have decided to stay true to the recommendations, but also have a bit of fun.
Along with five blueberries, we pair pear bitters with slices of fresh chilli to enhance the overall flavour of the cocktail.
100ml of Thomas Henry Cherry Blossom Tonic is then added for visual appeal and added taste.
Old Carrick Mill is an artisan Distillery, operated from an old flour mill dating back over two centuries and lies quietly nestled into the rugged landscape of Irelands Ancient East in Carrickmacross, County Monaghan.
At the Old Carrick Mill Distillery we use age old Irish traditions combined with modern efficiency and methods to create a product steeped in Irish heritage and unique flavors. Our spirits are handcrafted by our master distiller using only the finest carefully selected ingredients fused with our naturally filtered spring water which flows to us through the famous limestone of county Monaghan.
There is an old saying which goes “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 on a Fair day drinking, 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” in later years the famous Irish poet and novelist Patrick Kavanagh from Inniskeen County Monaghan immortalised the saying.
