Third Irish single malt released by Teeling

The Teeling Whiskey Company has released a third premium single malt expression, completing its range of non-aged statement Irish whiskeys.

Teeling single malt consists of aged malt whiskey up to 23 years old that has been matured in five different wine casks including sherry, port, Madeira, white Burgundy and Cabernet Sauvignon. This unusual combination of cask maturation techniques, not done before in Irish whiskey, creates a distinctive, rich colour while imparting a vibrant and balanced flavour of dry fruits, citrus, vanilla, spice and cloves. The proprietary maturation and vatting technique produces a whiskey of distinctive character while still being remarkably easy to drink.

Like all the Teeling whiskeys, it is bottled at 46% with no chill filtration allowing for all the natural flavours of the whiskey to be retained. The new whiskey will have an RRP of €55/£50/US$60.

Jack Teeling, founder of the Teeling Whiskey Company, comments: “We are delighted to be able to release another expression of Teeling whiskey that helps expand consumer choice and challenge existing perceptions of Irish whiskey. Our new Teeling single malt proves Irish whiskey can have big bold flavours that appeal to single malt drinkers without losing its distinctive Irish identity.”

The Teeling family whiskey heritage dates back to distilling in Dublin in 1782 and Walter Teeling, who set up a distillery in Marrowbone Lane in the Liberties. Jack and his brother Stephen, sales and marketing director, are the latest Generation of Teelings involved in the Irish whiskey industry and have broken ground on their new Dublin distillery in Newmarket, Dublin 8, which is scheduled to come on stream in early 2015.
