Roe & Co unveils Roe & Co Flor Single Grain Irish Whiskey

The release of Roe & Co Flor comes at a time when the demand for super premium and ultra premium Irish Whiskey expressions is surging

Roe & Co Flor Single Grain Irish Whiskey

Roe & Co has recently unveiled its latest innovation – Roe & Co Flor Single Grain Irish Whiskey.

This 14-year-old single grain expression is inspired by the age-old biological maturation of fortified wines from the Jerez region. Roe & Co Flor marks the brand’s first permanent single grain release.

Taking inspiration from Bodegas in the Jerez region Roe & Co have produced a whiskey that reimagines the possibilities of Irish Whiskey to marry our crafted 14-year-old single grain whiskey with the influence of select sherry casks that used a biological maturation process.

Roe & Co Flor is ‘meticulously finished’ in Fino and Amontillado Sherry casks which used a biological aging process.

Amontillado casks followed a dual aging process, biologically and oxidatively, while the Fino casks solely followed a biological aging process.

The casks have been hand-selected to create a crafted whiskey with a light flavour profile and notes of nuts, citrus and orchard fruits.

Commenting on the launch, Roe & Co representative, Lora Hemy, states: “Roe & Co is excited to release the first Single Grain expression, Roe & Co Flor Irish Whiskey, the latest innovation that will be a permanent addition to the Roe & Co family.

“This expression allowed us to experiment with an innovative process that was extremely rewarding. By taking a different approach and gathering inspiration from the Jerez region, we’ve crafted a vibrantly bold whiskey infused with character.

“The Veil de Flor’s protective qualities and natural aging process underlie this exceptional whiskey, providing a unique flavour profile that is both delicate and profound.”

The non-chill filtered Roe & Co Flor 14 YO Single Grain Irish Whiskey is a vibrantly bold Irish Whiskey and is bottled at 46% ABV. It will be available via Roe & Co Distillery and key outlets in Ireland, Northern Europe, and Global Travel markets late May/early June 2024, with a RRP of €95.
