Roe & Co Irish whiskey cocktails - Roe & Coffee

Here is one for professional bartenders or even the adventurous home bartenders amongst you who like to try a bit of mixology to impress your guests or just to pour yourself a refreshing cocktail or long drink. With the warmer weather fast approaching (I hope, but there is no guarantee in Scotland) Diageo Reserve’s premium Irish Whiskey, Roe & Co has developed a new range of perfect summer serves which should be very welcome over the summer months and demonstrate the versatility of the Irish spirit.

The selection of Roe & Co signature serves range from simple long drinks through to complex and flavour-rich short drinks and cocktails. The menu was collaboratively developed by European Brand Ambassador, Peter O’Connor, Diageo Reserve GB Whisky Ambassador, Ali Reynolds and some of the Irish bartenders who helped to develop the blend, including Kenneth Herilihy and Anna Walsh. Crafted to highlight and showcase Irish whiskey, the drinks also celebrate the fresh flavour of summer with light mixers and ingredients to perfectly complement the blend.

Since its launch just last year, Roe & Co, a whiskey made by bartenders alongside Master Blender, Caroline Martin, has been widely embraced by UK and Irish bartenders.

O’Connor comments: "Summer is such an inspiring time for bartenders, as consumers relish the opportunity to get out and enjoy the warmer weather, meet with friends and family and enjoy quality, memorable experiences in the on-trade.

"The new summer drinks from Roe & Co have been specifically chosen to work across lots of different types of pubs and bars. Irish whiskey is gaining significant traction with bartenders and consumers alike and our new seasonal serve strategy challenges traditional summer drinks and we hope, will open people’s minds up to Irish whiskey year-round."
