World Gin Day (13th June) is a time to celebrate everything gin related.

CLC World’s Duchally Country Estate would have loved to be opening the doors to its on-resort gin distillery today, so visitors could learn about the gin process and get to taste Gatehouse Gin.

However, Duchally has been “ginnovating” behind the scenes and brings you its twist on the classic Mojito.

The rum has been given the ‘heave-ho’ to be replaced by our Gatehouse Gin. To complement our red sweet apple finish, we’ve made soda walk the plank too, in its place – sparkling apple juice.

This is a perfect gin cocktail for those long summer nights when you want something refreshing with a little sweetness. Cheers!


40ml Gatehouse Gin
10ml Fresh Lime Juice
2tsp Sugar
6 Fresh Mint Leaves
100ml Sparkling Apple Juice
Crushed Ice


Muddle the lime juice, sugar and mint leaves in a small jug, crushing the mint as you go. Pour into a tall glass and add a handful of crushed ice.

Pour over the Gatehouse Gin, stirring with a long-handled spoon. Top up with sparkling apple juice, garnish with mint and serve.
