Meet The Maker with Roe & Co’s Lora Hemy

July 8, 2024

When: Tuesday July 30th at 7pm EST
Where: Member Zoom (registration link below)

Our next Meet The Maker event takes us to Dublin and Roe & Co Distillery where we’ll be joined by Head Distiller Lora Hemy.

Roe & Co Distillery is a revitalized brand (and now distillery) owned and operated by Guinness parent company, Diageo.

It is located on Thomas Street in Dublin across the street from St. James’ Gate brewery. The Guinness team took an old power station and regenerated it to be a new visitor experience and urban distillery.

Roe & Co Distillery - RKD

Roe & Co is a legacy brand that dates back to the 18th century. Once the largest distillery in either Britain or Ireland, George Roe & Co helped build the golden era of Irish whiskey in the 19th century. George Roe’s distillery extended over 17 city center acres.

As neighbors for hundreds of years, George Roe & Co and Guinness were the two biggest names at the heart of Dublin’s historic brewing and distilling quarter and amongst the biggest employers in the city.

Production at the new distillery started in the first half of 2019.

Diageo resurrected the original brand and launched a non-chill filtered, premium blended whiskey which was aged in bourbon barrels under the name “Roe & Co” in March 2017 as a forerunner to their own-distilled Irish whiskey (recently released) and Lora will share with us her vision for the spirits under her stewardship.


Our Meet The Maker events give our Whiskey Club members the opportunity to ask questions directly of the people behind the pours while getting behind-the-scenes insights on production and even future releases.
