Following critical acclaim of their Small Batch Rum Cask and their Single Grain Malt whisky which launched in the US in February, this latest release will further help and drive the selection and breadth within Irish whiskeys at a time of growing interest in the United States for more innovative, unique and flavoursome Irish expressions.

Teeling Single Malt (46% ABV) consists of malt whiskey aged up to 23 years old, which has been matured in five different wine casks including Sherry, Port, Madeira, White Burgundy and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Commenting on the news of its US launch, Jack Teeling, Founder of the Teeling Whiskey Company, said: “We are delighted to be able to release another expression of Teeling whiskey that helps expand consumer choice and challenge existing perceptions of Irish whiskey. Our new Teeling Single Malt proves Irish whiskey can have big bold flavours that appeal to Single Malt drinkers without losing its distinctive Irish identity.”
Founded by Jack Teeling in 2012, the Teeling Whiskey Company was set up to revive his family-old trademark of Irish whiskey and bring distilling back to Dublin, where Walter Teeling had a distillery on Marrowbone Lane in the 18th century.
In June the Teeling Whiskey Company officially opened its brand new distillery and visitor centre in The Liberties, Dublin. The €10 million distillery is the first in Dublin in over 125 years and is currently the only fully operational distillery in the city.
The Teeling Single Malt, which was recently named World’s Best Irish Single Malt at the 2015 World Whiskies Awards, will be available across the US for a RRP of $65.00.
