Teeling Single Pot Still, is the first new Dublin distilled Irish whiskey to be released for nearly 50 years. This release follows the auctioning of the first 100 bottles from the distillery in September, in aid of local Dublin charities – when bottle no. 1 sold for £10,000.
The opening of the Teeling Whiskey Distillery in 2015, marked a new chapter in the history of Dublin whiskey distilling, firmly putting Dublin and Teeling Whiskey at the forefront of a new wave of distilleries, that are driving a new golden era for Irish whiskey.
Commenting on the launch, Jack Teeling, Founder and Managing Director of Teeling Whiskey, said: “When the Teeling Whiskey Company was formed in 2012, my vision was to revive Irish whiskey distilling in Dublin and put our capital city back at the top table of whiskey producing areas in the world. While we have achieved a lot over the subsequent 6 years, the release of our own Dublin distilled whiskey completes the revival of the craft of distilling in Dublin and hopefully draws us into a new renaissance for not only Teeling Whiskey but Dublin distilled Irish whiskey as a whole.”
He went onto say: “Many new Dublin distilleries will no doubt follow but the history books will always remember us as the first and leaders of a new generation of producers. Our journey has been supported by many to get us to this point but a new legacy has just begun. We look forward to helping drive a new golden era for Dublin and Irish whiskey.”
Limited to 6,000 bottles, Teeling Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey, will be available later this month from Dublin Airport and specialist retailers, for a RRP of €55,00.
