Ollie Mulligan's family may have started making spirits in the kitchens and barns of Ireland, but times and technologies have changed. You'll see evidence of that the second you walk into our beautiful new distillery. The one thing that hasn't changed is there are still no shortcuts when it comes to distilling great spirits. It takes premium ingredients, time-tested techniques, and an uncompromising dedication to the finished product. Even after all these years, the only way to make great spirits is the right way, and that's how we do it at Great Wagon Road.
Not only is Great Wagon Road the oldest distillery in Mecklenburg County; it's the first one in North Carolina to have its own bar, The Broken Spoke. So we've got the best of both worlds, and some of the best spirits from around the world all in one place. Add some warm Irish hospitality to the mix and you've got a spot unlike any other in the Carolinas. Come have a drink, take a tour, and make yourself at home at Great Wagon Road.
