Awards, Updates

Teeling Whiskey, Ireland’s leading progressive Irish whiskey company is proud to announce that it’s 24-Year-Old Single Malt has claimed the prestigious World’s Best Single Malt award at the 2019 World Whiskies Awards.

In winning the award, Teeling Whiskey has made history, as it is the first time an Irish whiskey has been named as the world’s best single malt. Teeling Whiskey received the award at the exclusive World Whiskies Awards 2019 ceremony, held in the Honourable Artillery Company in London on Thursday 28th March

This revered accolade marks a momentous occasion not just for Teeling Whiskey but for Ireland’s whiskey industry overall. At the awards, Teeling Whiskey overcame fierce competition from renowned whiskey industry leaders from Scotland and Japan to take the number one prize for World’s Best Single Malt.

Single Malt is considered the “gold standard” of world whiskey due to its production process as well as its character and flavour profile. The single malt category has become synonymous with Scottish whiskey and more recently has been the style of whiskey driving the emergence of Japanese whiskey and other new age whiskey producing regions.

Commenting on last night’s win, Jack Teeling, Founder and Managing Director of Teeling Whiskey said:
“Since reviving our old family trademark of Teeling Whiskey back in 2012 we have endeavoured to make sure every bottle of Irish whiskey we release with our family name on it is of the highest quality.”
“To be honoured as the World’s Best Single Malt and in the process become the first Irish whiskey to ever have achieved such world-wide acclaim is very humbling and reflects the global resurgence and revival of both Teeling and Irish whiskey. We are now right back at the top table of global whiskey and we look forward to continue leading this new golden era for Irish whiskey.”
“We are also extremely proud of the team we have created, and this award is testament to the creativity, hard-work and dedication of our staff both here in Ireland and around the world, and I would like to thank them all for helping us achieve this ambition.”

The World Whiskies Awards is a premier celebration of the very best in all internationally recognised styles of whiskey. Presented by TheDrinksReport.com and Whisky Magazine, the World Whiskies Awards is one of the highlights of the year for the global whiskey industry selecting, rewarding and promoting the world’s best whiskeys to consumers and trade across the globe. An esteemed panel of internationally recognised whiskey experts chose Teeling Whiskey’s 24-Year-Old Single Malt as world’s best.

The Teeling Whiskey 24-Year-Old Single Malt is a multi-award winning super premium bottling of Irish single malt whiskey. The whiskey made from 100% malted barley was originally matured for 21 years in ex-Bourbon barrels, before it was aged for an extra three years in ex-Sauterne wine casks. The combination of aging processes and the unique Irish climate produces an extraordinary whiskey with complex yet silky smooth taste, with flavours of fig jam, honey, apricots, and white chocolate and crisp saltiness at the end to balance the sweetness off. This very small batch bottling is available in select markets around the world including Ireland, US, Benelux, Germany, Switzerland, Australia and some Asian markets.

Award Winning Teeling Whiskey Fills 10,000th Cask of Dublin Distilled Whiskey

19/11/2018
Single Malt, Distillery, History

Landmark coincides with the launch of its new Dublin distilled Teeling Single Pot Still.

Teeling Whiskey, Ireland’s leading progressive whiskey producer, is very proud to announce the filling of its 10,000th cask of whiskey distilled in Dublin from its award winning Teeling Whiskey Distillery.

The Teeling Whiskey Distillery fired up its stills in 2015 and with that, began to write a new chapter in the illustrious history of Dublin whiskey as the first new city based distillery in over 125 years in Dublin. This landmark coincides with the recent release of the first bottling of Teeling Single Pot Still Irish whiskey distilled at its Dublin based Teeling Whiskey Distillery.

Dublin whiskey and its distilleries were at the forefront of the previous Golden Era for Irish whiskey in the 19th century and it was a very dark day for Irish whiskey when during the 1970s these last remaining distilleries closed their doors. The opening of the Teeling Whiskey Distillery in 2015 marked a new chapter in the history of Dublin whiskey distilling, firmly putting Dublin and Teeling Whiskey at the forefront of a new wave of distilleries, that are driving a new Golden Era for Irish whiskey.

The first commercial release of Teeling Whiskey exclusively distilled in Dublin, was produced from a recipe of 50% un-malted barley and 50% malted barley, a uniquely Irish Single Pot Still mash bill made famous by Dublin distillers. However over the last three years multiple recipes have been used leading to a range of Single Pot Still, Single Malt, Peated Single Malt and some innovative recipes such as a Crystal Malt, Crystal Rye and an old Dublin Porter new make spirit being filled in a wide range, size and styles of casks that make up the 10,000 casks.

Commenting on the 10,000th cask being filled, Jack Teeling, Founder and Managing Director of Teeling Whiskey said:

“We have been delighted with the overall interest and response to our first Dublin distilled whiskey with our Teeling Single Pot Still being officially our fastest selling whiskey release. Filling of our 10,000th casks ties in with our strategy to ensure we have a wide range of styles and inventory to allow us to lead the evolution of the category as well as allow us to scale our business as Irish whiskey continues to segment and premiumise. We look forward to helping drive a new golden era for Dublin and Irish whiskey.”

The first Batch of the Teeling Single Pot Still was launched in October and is exclusively available in Ireland through the Teeling Whiskey Distillery gift shop, Dublin Airport and select independent off-licenses. The Teeling Single Pot Still Irish whiskey 70cl bottle comes in a gift tube and is bottled at 46% with an RRP of €55.00.

We sat down with Master Distiller, Alex Chasko to discuss the significance of the 10,000th cask and pick his brain on the wide variety of different barrels he and the production team at Teeling have used over the last number of years.

Alex, can you explain the significance of the 10,000th cask to the Teeling Whiskey Company?
“It is an amazing milestone for us to have produced such a large volume of whiskey. The filling of the 10,000th cask represents a remarkable commitment from the Teeling Whiskey Company to continue to produce high quality unique spirits.
When we started off, we had new production, new equipment, and a new distillery team. For us to have been able to make 10,000 barrels of whiskey is a testament to hard work being done on a daily basis by the distillery team.”

Can you tell us about the 10,000th cask itself?
“It’s a bourbon first fill cask. This means it has previously been filled with American bourbon but never previously with Irish whiskey. We frequently use American bourbon barrels, and we make a point of only using the highest quality bourbon barrels used in the market.”

Teeling is known for using a wide variety of barrels. In your opinion, what are some of the most interesting casks used?
“We’ve trialed so many that it’s hard to say! One cask selection that stood out to me was our use of ex-PX Brandy Chestnut casks, which are very large, old casks from the city of Jerez in Spain. They are traditionally used for the maturing of sherry, and we were very lucky to get our hands on such a rare cask with this purpose!
Another interesting cask that comes to mind is the ex-Calvados French brandy casks we use. There has been a recent decline of people using Calvados casks. However, I find these barrels to be particularly intriguing due to the fact that some of the Calvados barrels give off a distinct apple scent, where as others have more of a pear-like scent.”

Alex Chasko and our production team are continuously striving to push the boundaries of innovation when it comes to cask selection and creating unique bottlings of Teeling Whiskey. The first 10,000 casks filled have included a number of highly creative, and often unusual, selection of casks, so we are all very interested to see what Alex and team have in store for the next 10,000!

Teeling Whiskey Launches New Brabazon Bottling Single Malt Series

3/5/2017
Limited Edition, Single Malt, Reserve Collection

Everyone here at Teeling HQ is delighted to announce the release of the first in a new series of limited edition Single Malts, entitled the Brabazon Bottling. This series reaffirms Teeling Whiskey’s continued dedication to creating new and interesting expressions of Irish whiskey and in particular, expanding the underdeveloped Irish Single Malt category.

Since 1782 the Teeling family have been crafting Irish whiskey. However 2015 marked the year a new generation of Teelings returned to their distilling roots in the Liberties area of Dublin City and specifically Newmarket. There is another family synonymous with this specific area of the city – the Brabazons. From the 16th to 19th century the Brabazon family presided over this area of the Liberties and it was William Brabazon, the third Earl of Meath, who was granted the right to establish the great trading square at Newmarket. This was the original industrial suburb of Dublin, with an extensive tradition of brewing, distilling, tanning, weaving and trade in agricultural produce. The mercantile character of the area attracted generations of tradesmen including Walter Teeling who in 1782 set up the original Teeling Distillery in nearby Marrowbone Lane.

This new series focuses on creating a full flavoured experience that pays homage to the unique and distinct role that fortified wines can have on the taste of Irish whiskey. This first release in the Brabazon Bottling series focuses on the maturation effect of ex-sherry casks on the character and flavour of Irish Single Malt. By choosing a complementary range of vintages, sizes and styles of sherry cask matured Single Malt whiskey, the Brabazon Series No. 1 captures all the layers and aspects of flavour sherry casks can impart. The Brabazon Bottlings are bottled at 49.5% with no chill filtration allowing for all the natural flavours of this whiskey to be retained. Series No. 1 is limited to 12,500 bottles and is presented in a new premium distinctive embossed and debossed Teeling whiskey bottle, rounding off a truly unique Irish whiskey to savour.

Jack Teeling, Founder and Managing Director of Teeling Whiskey, commented:
“Our new Irish Single Malt brings together two famous Dublin family names – the Teelings and the Brabazons. By making reference to the historical Brabazon name, we are telling the story of why our family first came to the Liberties area of Dublin. But more importantly we are telling the story of why we are here now. Our aim with the whiskey was to create a full bodied tasting experience for people who enjoy the added complexity and taste sherry casks impart, and at the same time continuing our goal to expand the spectrum of flavours available from premium Irish whiskeys.”

Preheat glass with some warm water and discard, add the Teeling Whiskey, stout syrup, brewed coffee and stir to combine. Warm a large spoon and gently pour the cream over the back of the spoon and onto the coffee. Garnish with a light dusting of grated nutmeg and enjoy with friends! Our friends at Image Interiors have made a really lovely video showing you just how to create this at home, check it out here and let us know how you get on.

3/11/2016
Limited Edition, Single Malt, Reserve Collection

World’s most exclusive Irish Whiskeys – 24 Year Old and 33 Year Old Single Malt unveiled by Teeling Whiskey.

Teeling Whiskey, Ireland’s leading independent Irish whiskey Company, has released two new bottlings from its Vintage Reserve Collection – the Teeling 24 Year Old and the Teeling 33 Year Old Irish Single Malt. The 33 Year Old release which is limited to just 275 bottles, is believed to be the oldest bottling of Irish Single Malt recently released, making it the world’s most exclusive Irish whiskey.

The Teeling 24 Year Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey was first distilled in 1991 and matured in Bourbon casks then allowed marry in Sauterne wine casks producing a wholly unique taste experience. The unique dual maturation imparts an extra depth of fruit flavours that perfectly complement the hint of smoke derived from the inclusion of a small portion of Peated malt as part of the original ingredients used in production. This small batch bottling, limited to 5,000 bottles per batch, was hand bottled in unique decanter bottles and come with their own certificate of authenticity. Recently awarded the title of World’s Best Irish Single Malt, this is a whiskey to be savoured.

The Teeling 33 Year Old Single Malt bottling consists of some of the oldest Irish Single Malt ever bottled making this an extremely rare release of Irish Whiskey. Distilled in 1983 and aged exclusively in two ex-bourbon barrels which after 33 years of maturation produced only 275 bottles at an alcohol strength of 42.9% straight out of the cask. To match its rarity, this historic bottling of Irish Whiskey produces a truly unique taste experience from its complex floral nose, to its deep layered flavours as a result of its 33 year journey and a long luxurious finish without being over oaked.

To further celebrate this historic release of some of the oldest Irish Single Malt ever bottled, Teeling Whiskey set out to craft a booklet documenting its story and long affiliation with the industry. Working with Dundalgan Press and Duffy’s Bookbinders, some of the oldest in the business, a beautiful commemorative booklet was produced. This booklet, printed and bound by hand, now sits alongside the hand bottled 33 Year Old Single Malt, perfectly complementing it in its rarity and craftsmanship.

Jack Teeling, founder of the Teeling Whiskey Company, commented:
“We are extremely proud to be able to release some of the oldest ever bottlings of Irish Single Malt with our Vintage Reserve Collection. These offerings are central to our goal to help drive diversity in Irish whiskey by introducing interesting and unique small batch bottlings. There is nothing else like these Irish Single Malts on the market and represent a rare piece of Irish whiskey history in each bottle.”

Teeling Whiskey Unveils Final Release of The Revival Single Malt

26/4/2018
Limited Edition, Single Malt, Reserve Collection

Teeling Whiskey, Ireland’s leading progressive Irish whiskey producer, is proud to unveil the fifth and final bottling of “The Revival”, a limited edition, award winning, commemorative Single Malt. The Revival Volume V is another unique addition to The Revival Series, which was originally crafted to celebrate the opening of the Teeling Whiskey Distillery and with that, the revival of the tradition of distilling in Dublin.

The final bottling of The Revival precedes the launch of the first new Dublin distilled whiskey for over 40 years. Teeling Whiskey’s Single Pot Still Irish whiskey, fully distilled in the Teeling Whiskey Distillery in Dublin’s Newmarket, will be released later this year.

The Revival Vol. V joins Teeling Whiskey’s range of award winning Irish whiskeys, which have collected over 175 international awards over the last five years. The fifth bottling of The Revival consists of 12-Year-Old Single Malt that was aged initially in ex-Bourbon barrels before being finished in a combination of Cognac and Brandy barrels, imparting distinct hints of toasted almonds and freshly pressed grapes. Limited to just 15,000 bottles, the resulting Single Malt is then bottled at 46% with no chill filtration, a signature of all Teeling Whiskeys.

Jack Teeling, founder of the Teeling Whiskey Company, commented:
“We are delighted to launch the last release in our award-winning Revival Series, just a few months before our first Irish whiskey will come of age from our Dublin distillery. The Revival Series was originally launched to celebrate the rebirth of distilling in Dublin, so the timing is fitting to end the series now, as we enter a period of renaissance for the capital with the launch of the first Dublin distilled Irish whiskey for over 40 years.

We are also very excited to announce plans for the release of a very special celebratory Single Pot Still bottling of one of our very first casks of new whiskey scheduled for August. To celebrate the launch, we will auction 100 of the very first bottles of our new whiskey, with all profits going back to local Dublin 8 charities. This will be followed by the commercial release of the Teeling Whiskey Single Pot Still in November.”

The first 100 bottles will be auctioned online with the balance to be sold in the distillery itself. One of the core founding principles of the company was to give back to the local community that has welcomed Teeling Whiskey so well over the last 3 years, so we are incredibly proud to be giving back all profits from this first release to a selection of local Dublin 8 based charities. The Revival Vol V is available to purchase now with an RRP of €120.00.

The product will be available in Ireland at the Teeling Whiskey Distillery in Newmarket, Dublin Airport, The Celtic Whiskey Stop, all good independent off licences before being launched into international markets such as the UK, Germany, Belgium, Holland, Denmark and Italy.

Dublin Whiskey is Reborn with Release of the Teeling Single Pot Still

26/10/2018
Limited Edition, Single Malt, Reserve Collection

First Commercial Release from the Teeling Whiskey Distillery located in Dublin City Centre.

Teeling Whiskey, Ireland’s leading progressive whiskey producer, is proud to announce the release of its Teeling Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey, the first commercial release distilled at its Dublin based Teeling Whiskey Distillery. Teeling Single Pot Still is the first new Dublin distilled Irish whiskey to be released for nearly 50 years, marking the true revival for the craft of distilling in the city. This release follows the auctioning of the first 100 bottles from the distillery in September, in aid of local Dublin charities – when bottle no. 1 sold for £10,000, breaking a world record for the most expensive bottle of whiskey sold from a new distillery.

The arrival of Teeling Single Pot Still is a landmark occasion for Ireland’s whiskey industry and in particular for Dublin. Dublin whiskey and its distilleries were at the forefront of the previous golden era for Irish whiskey in the 19th century, and it was a very dark day for Irish whiskey when, during the 1970s, these last remaining distilleries closed their doors. The opening of the Teeling Whiskey Distillery in 2015 marked a new chapter in the history of Dublin whiskey distilling, firmly putting Dublin and Teeling Whiskey at the forefront of a new wave of distilleries, that are driving a new golden era for Irish whiskey.

This is the first commercial release of Teeling Single Pot Still Whiskey, produced from a recipe of 50% un-malted barley and 50% malted barley, a uniquely Irish mash bill made famous by Dublin distillers of old. Distilled in 2015 in the Teeling Whiskey Distillery and aged in a range of virgin oak, ex-bourbon and ex-wine casks, this release possesses a distinct Pot Still taste profile unique to Teeling. Batch 1 of the Teeling Single Pot Still was bottled in October and is limited to 6,000 bottles.

Commenting on the Single Pot Still release, Jack Teeling, Founder and Managing Director of Teeling Whiskey said:
“When the Teeling Whiskey Company was formed in 2012, my vision was to revive Irish whiskey distilling in Dublin and put our capital city back at the top table of whiskey producing areas in the world. While we have achieved a lot over the subsequent 6 years, the release of our own Dublin distilled whiskey completes the revival of the craft of distilling in Dublin and hopefully draws us into a new renaissance for not only Teeling Whiskey but Dublin distilled Irish whiskey as a whole.

Many new Dublin distilleries will no doubt follow but the history books will always remember us as the first and leaders of a new generation of producers. Our journey has been supported by many to get us to this point but a new legacy has just begun. We look forward to helping drive a new golden era for Dublin and Irish whiskey.

The first batch of the Teeling Single Pot Still is exclusively available in Ireland and will be available through the Teeling Distillery gift shop today, Friday 26th Oct, and at teelingwhiskey.com, Celtic Whiskey Shop, Dublin Airport and select independent off-licenses from next week. The Teeling Single Pot Still Irish whiskey 70cl bottle comes in a gift tube and is bottled at 46% with a RRP of €55.00.
