What’s Old Is New Again : Teeling Irish WhiskeyBy Distiller
Teeling Irish Whiskey is back!
We’ve written before about the growth of the Irish Whiskey Market. From the Suntory/Beam deal, to the general increasing global demand, the world of Irish whiskey is growing in much the same way that the American and Scotch markets have over the past few years.
Teeling Irish Whiskey has made some major announcements in the past couple of weeks.
To provide a little history, we’ll take it straight from Teeling’s site –
Jack Teeling, founder of the Teeling Whiskey Co., comes from a family long associated with Irish whiskey. From Walter Teeling in 1782 who setup a distillery on Marrowbone Lane in Dublin to John Teeling who founded Cooley Distillery in 1987, the first new Irish whiskey distillery to be establish in Ireland in over 100 years.
Jack continues on the Teelings entrepreneurial spirit and while initially starting out as an Independent bottler aims to get back into the distilling game to ensure a constant supply of Irish whiskey. The Teeling Whiskey Co. reviving the Independent Spirit of Ireland.
The Teeling name is certainly not new to whiskey, and that lineage lends formidable credence to this burgeoning brand. And when we say burgeoning – we mean it. Those aforementioned announcements of late show that the brand is well poised to make a big splash outside of their current UK market.
Not only have they made plans to open a new distillery in the heart of Dublin, they’ve also partnered with Infinium Spirits to bring their labels to the US.
Needless to say – we’ll hopefully soon find ourselves gladly raising a glass of Teeling.
