Wanna go to Ireland?


To get into the spirit, Roe & Co - an Irish Whiskey rooted in collaboration - is encouraging cocktail enthusiasts across the country to come together to re-invent the ultimate whiskey drink. Today, the brand is kicking off the “Dublin’ Up Cocktail Challenge” contest where innovative, at-home bartenders can team up to form a team of two that can display their inner creativity by putting their personal spin on a classic whiskey cocktail (whether that be an Irish Coffee, a Whiskey Sour or anything in between). 


Why apply? The winning duo will win a $10,000 travel voucher to be put towards a trip to Dublin and an immersive cocktail session at the brand’s Dublin-based distillery, where their recipe will be featured as Roe & Co’s signature cocktail during St. Patrick’s Day 2024!


Starting today, adults 25+ will have the opportunity to submit their cocktails by posting a photo or video on Instagram with #DublinUpCocktailContest and tagging @RoeAndCoWhiskey, ending at 11:59:59 pm ET on May 1, 2023. Fans will have the chance to vote for their favorite reimagined cocktail via the Roe & Co Instagram before the lucky winning duo is named after World Whisky Day (May 20, 2023).
