Teeling Whiskey Company, Ireland’s leading independent whiskey producer, has introduced the first bottling from its new distillery at Newmarket, Dublin 8: a premium Irish Poitín called Spirit of Dublin.
The Teeling Whiskey Distillery - the first new distillery in Dublin for over 125 years - started producing spirit in March 2015, marking the return of the Teeling family to their ancestral distilling home of the Liberties in the heart of the city.
Poitín is a clear Irish spirit, famous for its alcohol strength. In homage to this authentic Irish spirit, the Teeling Whiskey Company has released a contemporary bottling of Poitín to help bring this unique Irish product out of the shadows.
The Spirit of Dublin Irish Poitín is triple distilled in the distillery’s three copper pot stills and made from a traditional Dublin Pot Still recipe of unmalted and malted Irish barley, giving it a distinctively sweet cereal taste. Bottled straight from the still at 52.5% with no maturation process, the newest addition to the Teeling range is a surprisingly smooth spirit which can be enjoyed neat, with water or in a cocktail.
Jack Teeling, founder of the Teeling Whiskey Company, comments: “Poitín is at the heart of all true Irish spirits and will be the base for future whiskey releases from our new distillery. This Spirit of Dublin bottling gives people a sneak peek at what our new distillery is producing as well as showcasing a modern version of our unique and traditional white Irish spirit.”
The latest addition to the Teeling range can be purchased from the Teeling Distillery, Celtic Whiskey Shop, Dublin Airport and all good independent off-licences. The recommended retail price for the Spirit of Dublin Irish Poitin is €35.
