Teeling starts work on new Dublin distillery

The Teeling Whiskey Company has commenced work on its new whiskey distillery located in Dublin’s Newmarket in The Liberties, Dublin 8.  This first new distillery to be built in Dublin in over 125 years will be a modern revival of the family distillery that thrived in the area in the eighteenth century.

The Teeling Whiskey distilling equipment is scheduled to arrive in October and commissioning of the distillery will commence before the end of this year. There will be 30 permanent jobs created following its completion.

Jack Teeling, founder and MD of the Teeling Whiskey Company comments: “We are proud to be returning to our ancestral distilling roots which trace back to 1782 in The Liberties. This project brings distilling back to an area of Dublin long associated with world-class whiskey which, at one stage, had 37 different operational distilleries and was known as the ‘Golden Triangle’ due to the cluster of Irish whiskey manufacturers in one small area.  Dublin whiskey was at the forefront of the last golden age of Irish whiskey.  We aim to revive the Spirit of Dublin by putting Dublin and Teeling Whiskey firmly back on the map again.”

The Teeling Whiskey brand now reaches more than 25 export markets.  The construction of the new distillery will guarantee future supply for the Teeling Whiskey brands and allow the creation of a range of innovative and authentic Irish whiskeys based on the traditional and unique Dublin style of distillation.

The pot still distillery will have the capacity to produce 500,000 litres of whiskey on an annual basis and will consist of three traditional copper pot stills reviving the traditional style of the old Dublin distilleries. In addition, a visitor centre will offer a new Dublin destination.
