About

To accomplish this, the goal is to raise 40,000 euro or more within a 40-day time period. I've created some amazing rewards to thank you for your generosity. It's all or nothing, the project moves forward only if the goal is met. If not, you as a supporter will not be charged a penny.

We can’t do this without you!

This beautiful Mill has been left uncared for and time has taken its toll on it. We are going to fully restore the Mill plus add a fully working Distillery to share with the world.

This Kickstarter goal is to get the Mill a new roof, this will stop any further damage being caused and give us the time to raise the needed funds to restore the rest of the project.

Derrylavan Mill was built in the 18th century with one of the largest iron water wheels at that time. The mill was a major life line for the town of Carrickmacross. It had a fully working water wheel powered by the river 2 miles away, a Killin and malting room , grinding stones, blacksmiths and all electric was created by the water wheel.

My Name is Steven Murphy and I am the man behind the Old Carrick Mill Project. This Whole idea has come from a love of Hand Crafted Spirits and Irish Whiskey. I have been working on this project for years but the last 2/3 years have been ground breaking.

I jumped on a plane and headed to Seattle USA. Here i seen 1st hand the craft spirits movement and were it is going. (It's going to be big) Working with Seattles finest i have taken a lot of new ideas home with me to put into action.

Entering the Ireland's Best Young Entrepreneur i had no idea were this would take me. It didn't take long to find out the long night's and hard work that was going to have to go into this, but it all paid off. Winning 2 of the 3 rounds and making it to the Top 8 People in all of Ireland is something i will never forget. The networking and people i like to now call friends made everything worth wile.

I have built a team over the years to be proud of- from Master Distillers that have worked with the biggest spirit companies around the world to site developers helping build the tour like no other, and that is just to name a few. Everything is almost in place but it is time to make the push and make it happen.

This will truly be a dream come true. So Please give us a hand and make it happen. Remember every penny counts.

The Mill has had many hard years from then till now and lays in a shadow of its former glory but we want to change all that.

With your help and a lot of hard work we want to re-roof the mill.

The main goal of this kickstarter is to get the mill a new roof. It is in bad need of a new one- if this is not done in the next 2 years the damage will be too great and we will lose this building forever.

Here at Old Carrick Mill Distillery we have worked with some of the greatest Master Distillers on the island of Ireland to create our super premium Gin. Winning blind tasting with 90% over a leading premium brand. Our Gin is a perfect balance of 9 infused Botanicals creating a truly unforgettable Spirit. 

The next step will be to set our 3 types of Irish whiskey down for at least 5 years.

We are going to fully restore the Mill to its former glory and open its doors to the world. We are going to take a step back in time running tours showing the history of the Mill and the full workings of the Distillery.

  This Site is setting out to be one of Ireland's most visited Fully Working Whiskey Distilleries. We are going to take a step back in time and run a step by step tour of a Fully Working Distillery.

This KickStarter is to get the Mill a New Roof with Bangor Blue slates = 80,000 Euro

We have set our target at 40,000 as this is what we need to fulfill the rewards and top up the funding we have secured to Re-roof the Mill. If we raise more than the 40,000 we will be spending it on the rest of the mill.

This building can never be replaced so give us a hand in saving it and keep Irish eyes smiling.

Share this project with your friends and family, just getting the word out is very helpful.

Risks and challenges

Not know the true extent of the damage time has done to the mill until old roof comes off could pose our biggest challenge.

We have a great team working with us and over seeing the project and i have no doubt in my mind no mater what comes up we can over come any problem.
