Roe & Co launches new tipple that combines whiskey and beer

Roe & Co has announced the launch of its latest whiskey and it's delicious! The limited edition Coffee Stout Cask Finish from the Cask & Keg series is set to be a fan favourite amongst whiskey and coffee lovers.

The newest flavour came as a part of a collaboration between Roe & Co Irish whiskey and its Dublin 8 neighbour, The Guinness Open Gate Brewery. This delicious whiskey combines whiskey and beer with notes of creamy vanilla and cacao on the nose, full-bodied with a touch of sweet molasses and subtle wood spice on the palate, finishing with a creamy mouth coating and subtle roasted malt taste, all pinned with underlying notes of coffee grounds from the stout and spiced orchard fruits from the core blend. Head Brewer, Peter Simpson, commented: “We first experimented with Cask & Keg with our Antwerpen Stout and Citra IPA – both of which produced taste experiences unique to the partnership between the Roe & Co Distillery and the Open Gate Brewery at St. James’ Gate. Building on this success, now we’re taking experimentation one step further and looked to deepen the blend between whiskey and stout. "Focusing only on stout, this year’s Cask & Keg release is the result of the 11-month finishing of Roe & Co’s blend 106 in barrels which previously matured coffee-infused stout. The result is a coffee stout finish with undertones of cream soda, subtle soft wood spice and tropical fruit."
