Roe & Co Irish Distillery And Visitor Experience To Open June 21

The new Roe & Co Irish Whiskey distillery and visitor experience located on James’s Street in Dublin is set to open to the public on June 21.

Global brand director Roe & Co at Diageo Gráinne Wafer stated, "We are launching a state-of-the-art distillery and experience like no other, led by our extremely talented distiller, Lora Hemy. This boutique experience, which will have a maximum of 16 guests per tour, will ensure visitors can get up close and personal with our remarkable distillery and whiskey, focusing on the five pillars of flavour."

€25m Investment

Wafer added, "The distillery will provide direct employment for 18 people and will complement what is already the country’s most popular tourism offering, The Guinness Storehouse. This €25 million investment into the Roe & Co distillery further demonstrates Diageo’s commitment to the growing vibrancy of The Liberties, one of the city’s most dynamic districts and the heart of brewing and distilling."
