|Teeling launch their award-winning single grain whiskey in the US|
The US whiskey industry is known for its corn/grain based whiskey but the current world champion of this category comes from Ireland.
Teeling Single Grain is one of only a handful of single grain bottlings in the world. It uses a very unique maturation process fully maturing the whiskey in Californian red wine barrels.
The whiskey is made by combining unique ingredients, with maize/corn dominating and uses modern column distillation to produce the whiskey, which is exceptionally clean and smooth with a touch of sweetness.
Commenting on the US launch, Jack Teeling, founder of the Teeling Whiskey Company, said: “It’s a little known fact that the majority of Irish whiskey sold is actually grain whiskey so we feel it is interesting to have expressions of single grain whiskey in its own right. Our Teeling single grain is representative of our aim to help drive the expansion of the Irish whiskey category through unique bottlings and expressions.”
Jack and his brother Stephen, Sales & Marketing Director, are just the latest generation of Teeling’s involved in the Irish whiskey industry. While initially starting out as an Independent bottler their aim is to bring Teeling Whiskey home by establishing the first new whiskey distillery in Dublin in over 125 years.
Teeling Single Grain Irish whiskey was recently awarded World’s Best Grain Whiskey at the 2014 World Whiskies Awards.
