Roe & Co, a new contemporary blend, is inspired by the once world-famous George Roe & Co Distillery in Dublin. Roe & Co is made from the finest hand-selected stocks of irish malt and grain whiskies, aged in bourbon casks.

The Roe family began distilling whiskey in the 1700s, but it was George Roe in the mid-1800s who expanded the family business into the largest distillery at the time in Ireland. His distillery on Thomas Street, a neighbor to the well-known Guinness brewery, houses the largest smock windmill in Europe known today as St. Patrick’s Tower – which remains a historic landmark.

Leading the discovery, Diageo Master Blender Caroline Martin partnered with a team of five hand-picked Irish bartenders who truly embody the liquid’s innovative spirit. In collaboration, this team trialed more than 100 prototype blends before they created this versatile, premium expression of Irish whiskey.

Roe & Co Irish Whiskey was made by bartenders for bartenders. The completed Roe & Co liquid has been specially sourced and consists of more than 100 blended malt and grain whiskeys, aged in bourbon casks. Roe & Co is non-chill filtered and bottled at a higher than usual abv of 45 percent.
