Roe & Co is made from the finest hand-selected stocks of Irish malt and grain whiskeys and aged in bourbon casks. It has the signature smoothness of Irish Whiskey with a remarkable depth of flavor – vanilla, toffee, and spiced orchard fruits from our bourbon cask blend.  The high proportion of first-fill casks gives notes of creamy vanilla balanced with its hints of fruit and soft spice and a remarkable depth for such an elegant and refined whiskey.
