The rich aroma of freshly brewed coffee mingles with the smooth, velvety notes of Roe & Co Irish Whiskey – welcome to the celebration of Irish Coffee Day on Thursday, 25th January! While the world raises a cup to this iconic beverage, there’s no better way to partake in the festivities than by indulging in a cup of Roe & Co Irish Coffee, a contemporary twist on a classic concoction.
The origins of Irish coffee can be traced back to the small town of Rineanna, located by the Flying Boat terminal at Foynes Airport in Limerick. In 1942, Joe Sheridan, a skilled chef, found himself working at a restaurant that catered to passengers on transatlantic flights, including notable figures from Hollywood and politics during World War II. On a stormy evening when a flight had to turn back, Joe improvised by adding a drop of whiskey to warm up the chilled passengers. Little did he know that this simple act would give birth to a global phenomenon that we now celebrate every year on Irish Coffee Day.
Step into the world of Roe & Co Irish Whiskey, a premium spirit distilled at the Roe & Co Distillery in Dublin 8.
