Welcome to Dublin Whiskey News – this week we go inside the new Roe & Co distillery opening in Dublin this month.
The newest addition to Ireland’s renaissance in Irish whiskey is set to open its doors to the public on June 21. IrishCentral was lucky enough to get the first look at the exquisitely designed distillery ready to welcome guests to a 75-minute tour – including tastings, blending, cocktail mixology and of course history of Usice Beatha (water of life). Located in the heart of Dublin’s whiskey district, visitors will be treated to one of the most immersive experiences in distilling. The 75-minute tour will allow guests to observe the operational distillery, hear the hum of production, and witness the copper pot stills from an impressive elevated glass walkway.
The distillery building has been regenerated with modern urban décor and an industrial feel. This is reflected throughout all design elements, from staff uniforms to a specially commissioned tiki print featured on barware. The contemporary tiki illustration reflects key elements of the Roe & Co story, from St. Patrick’s Tower and the pear tree which has stood in the grounds of the former George Roe Distillery since the 17th century, to the iconic chimneys of Dublin’s skyline. At the start of this decade, there were four working Irish distilleries, now with the opening of the Roe & Co Distillery, there will be 27. The distillery will distil 4,000 litres in every run, with an annual maximum capacity of approximately 500,000 litres of alcohol.
