The Teeling Whiskey Company, in partnership with The Aviators Whiskey Society and Dublin Airport, has announced the launch of a single cask bottling to celebrate the first year of The Aviators Whiskey Society.

Teeling Whiskey - The Aviators Single Cask (57.9% ABV) is a 12 Year Old single malt that was originally matured in ex-bourbon casks before being finished in ex-Californian cabernet sauvignon casks.

Limited to just 306 bottles, the single cask bottling was hand selected by members of The Aviators Whiskey Society, which was set up by retail staff in Dublin Airport to celebrate and promote whiskey. The tasting event was held at the Teeling Distillery, hosted by company Founder and Managing Director Jack Teeling.

The society members were treated to an array of single cask samples that were all reviewed in a blind taste test. By the end of the evening the 50+ members had declared the Cabernet Sauvignon Finished Single Cask the single malt of choice.

Commenting on the launch, John Byrne, Buyer ARI Ireland for Alcohol & Tobacco, said: “We are delighted to add this very special edition to The Irish Whiskey Collection. The Aviators Whiskey Society was set up by retail staff in Dublin Airport to celebrate, promote and above all, enjoy Whiskey! They’ve now taken it one step further by creating their own whiskey with our partners in Teeling Whiskey. Their gesture in allowing the Aviators Society the opportunity to develop an exclusive line of whiskey, speaks volumes for our close working relationship. ”

He went on to say: “We are delighted to have the society’s name attached to such a premium whiskey which will sit proudly on shelf alongside an already diverse and truly market leading collection. I can’t think of anything better to express the real “spirit” of the Aviator’s Society. Who says you can’t bottle positivity!”

Teeling Whiskey - The Aviators Single Cask, is available exclusively through The Irish Whiskey Collection at The Loop, Dublin Airport for €85.00.
