Roe & Co

Price: £29.99 (US$36.16)

Diageo’s Master-winning Roe & Co was described by judges as “smooth, with all the complex fruit flavours working in harmony” in the Blended – Standard category.

The UK drinks group announced its return to the Irish whiskey category in 2017 with the launch of the Roe & Co brand. Diageo exited Irish whiskey with the sale of Bushmills to Jose Cuervo’s parent company in 2015.

Roe & Co combines hand-selected stocks of Irish malt and grain whiskies, aged in Bourbon casks. The brand pays homage to George Roe, who is credited with building the golden era of Irish whiskey in the 19th century.

In June this year, Diageo kicked off production at its Roe & Co distillery in Dublin, marking another stage in the capital’s Irish whiskey renaissance.
