As we raise our glasses to celebrate Mountain Khakis' remarkable 20-year journey, we're excited to keep sharing tales of our recent collaborations we've explored throughout our two-decade-long adventure. Our second edition features our latest collaboration, the Legacy Whiskey, with Charlotte's very own Ollie Mulligan, the Owner of Great Wagon Road Distillery in NoDa.
Founded by Irish native, Oliver “Ollie” Mulligan, Great Wagon Road Distilling Co. is the oldest distillery in Charlotte, North Carolina, and the first one to have its own speakeasy attached. Although Ollie is the first in his family to make legal spirits, three generations ago in the midlands of Ireland, Ollie’s grandfather Patrick Quinn began the family tradition of whiskey making, and in 2013, after a handshake and a few pints with a mate, Ollie Mulligan established Great Wagon Road Distilling Co. to carry on his family tradition of whiskey craftsmanship.
With decades of distillery experience and a family history that ties back to the early day of moonshining, Ollie has proudly established a well known distilling company that is ever-expanding and creating a lasting legacy, one drink at a time! See how his meticulous methodology, decision-making, and past experiences led Ollie into creating one of the most beloved distilleries to ever exist in Charlotte.
