Guinness is Releasing Its Own Irish Whiskey
At the moment, Roe & Coe will only be available in select European markets, Irish Times reports. Master Distiller Caroline Martin is currently bringing in whiskey from other distilleries and blending it to develop the product. Starting in early 2019, however, the Roe & Co distillery will begin operation and production in an old Guinness factory in Dublin. The factory once neighbored George Roe’s whiskey distillery in the 18th century, and the new whiskey from Diageo honors its memory with the choice of name.
Bottles of this blended Irish whiskey will retail at €35, and will eventually reach the American markets in 2019 when production begins in earnest.
