Taste The World In D-8TE This Summer


The Roe & Co Distillery have once again offered up their home this summer to local businesses to bring an exciting line up of global tastes to their Dublin 8 Cocktail Village. 

“D-8TE” sees the Diageo whiskey brand collaborating with six local restaurants for a unique, gastronomical experience that allows foodies to celebrate flavours from all around the world, without leaving the capital.

Spitalfields, Camden Street favourite Pickle, Bahay, Ranelagh’s Nightmarket, Matsu Ramen and Nico Reynold’s Lil Portie will all be serving up set menus (a different one each fortnight) priced at €40 per person, with a unique curated Roe & Co whiskey cocktail pairing inspired by the variety of dishes at €30 per person.

Supporting local has never been more important and Roe & Co is proud to play their part supporting their foodie neighbours of Dublin City offering what’s set to be Dublin’s most anticipated and exciting dining experience this summer.

I was lucky enough to taste the D-8TE experience from Roe & Co Distillery’s neighbour Spitalfields: the only pub in Dublin and Ireland to have been awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand in the 2021 Michelin guide. Spitalfields brings a modern Irish picnic to the D-8TE Cocktail Garden and among his offereings, Chef Stephen McAlister is serving up potted shrimp with devilled eggs and Goatsbridge trout roe on soda bread. There is also delicious Roast bone marrow & toast finished off with a classic Eton mess.
