In the last three years, visitor numbers have surpassed expectations, exceeding 300,000, and have generated a revenue figure of close to €9 million.
In addition to the surge in visitor numbers, the Teeling Whiskey Distillery has claimed several prestigious accolades as part of its journey. Over the last three years it has been honoured with the title of the “Whiskey Visitor Attraction of the Year’ at the Icons of Whiskey Awards. It has also been nominated for Europe's Leading Distillery Tour, at the World Travel Awards which are to be announced on 30th June 2018.
To help celebrate its third birthday, a unique schedule of ‘Dublin Rising’ events will be hosted in the distillery to celebrate the Spirit of Dublin. This will include a pop-up exhibition celebrating some of the local collaborations Teeling have been involved in over the last few years.
As the Teeling Distillery celebrates its third birthday, the historic and eagerly anticipated release of its first Dublin distilled whiskey is imminent. This will be the first Dublin born Irish whiskey to be released for over 40 years.
Commenting on the news, Jack Teeling, Founder and Managing Director of Teeling Whiskey, said: “The Teeling Distillery visitor centre provides a unique and unrivalled experience for visitors to Dublin and its success since opening in 2015 is something we are very proud of. The consistent positive feedback and reaction we receive from visitors justifies all the hard work we have put in.”
He went onto say: “We are now at a very exciting and significant stage of our journey with the first whiskey from our new distillery just about to come of age – the first Dublin whiskey distilled in the capital for over 40 years.”
The first cask of Single Pot Still from the Teeling Whiskey Distillery, will be released as a celebratory release of just 250 bottles in August. This will be followed with the first commercial release of the new Teeling Single Pot Still in October.
