Teeling releases single barrel series in US

Irish whiskey producer Teeling Whiskey has released an exclusive single barrel bottling programme in time for St. Patrick’s Day (March 17). This series involves 12 individual casks of Irish single malt whiskey hand bottled for some of the top American on- and off- premise accounts on both the east and west coasts of the US.

The 2016 US single barrel release consists of 13 year old single malt Irish whiskey distilled in 2002, and initially matured in ex-bourbon barrels for the first 12 years before being finished exclusively in ex-white port barrels from the Carcavelos region of Portugal. 

The Teeling Whiskey Company claims to be the first whiskey producer to use this type of white port barrels to age whiskey and deliver a truly unique taste that works perfectly with the underlying taste characteristics of Irish whiskey. Each bottle is numbered, hand filled and bottled in its most natural form at cask/barrel strength. 

Jack Teeling, founder of Teeling Whiskey, comments: “We are delighted to be able to release such unique and innovative expressions of Teeling whiskey in the US for St. Patrick’s Day. In conjunction with some of the leading US retailers we continue to drive the choice and breadth of offerings for Irish whiskey drinkers.”

Teeling Whiskey is imported into the US through Infinium Spirits. The exclusive Teeling Whiskey Single Barrel Series will retail for approximately US$85.00 and will be available on shelf in selected spirits’ retailers in time for St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th 2016.
