The Teeling Whiskey Company, Ireland’s leading Independent Irish whiskey producer is expanding its premium Irish whiskey portfolio in the U.S. market with the launch of its award winning Irish Single Malt. This Single Malt, was recently named World’s Best Irish Single Malt at the 2015 World Whiskies Awards.
Teeling Single Malt is the third release in the Premium range of Teeling expressions completing their full range to form the Teeling Trinity of non-aged statement of Irish whiskeys. To add a unique depth of character and flavor, 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 combination of cask maturation techniques has never been done before in Irish whiskey and creates a truly innovative Irish whiskey bursting with personality. Like all the Teeling whiskeys, it is bottled at 46% with no chill filtration allowing for all the natural flavors of the whiskey to be retained.
Jack Teeling, founder of the Teeling Whiskey Company, commented, “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 flavors that appeal to Single Malt drinkers without losing its distinctive Irish identity.”
The new Teeling Single Malt will be available nationally with a suggested retail price of $65.
First held in 2007, the World Whiskies Awards search for the very best whiskies in the world. Teeling Whiskey Irish Single Malt was honoured with the accolade of ‘World’s Best’ beating off stiff competition from around the globe. Held in London, this year’s competition saw more than 300 whiskies put through their paces with three rounds of rigorous tastings, to win the coveted title of the ‘World’s Best’

Jack and his brother Stephen, Sales & Marketing Director, are just the latest Generation of Teelings involved in the Irish whiskey industry and have just opened the first new distillery in Dublin for over 125 years with their Teeling Distillery and Visitors Center in Newmarket, Dublin 8.
About the Teeling Whiskey Company
The Teeling Whiskey Company was founded by Jack Teeling in 2012 to bring back an independent voice to the Irish whiskey category. The Teeling Whiskey Company aims to be Ireland’s leading independent Irish whiskey producer driving category choice and innovation through a selection of unique handcrafted small batch Irish whiskeys.
The Teeling family established the Cooley Distillery in 1987 – the first Irish whiskey distillery set up in Ireland in over 100 years. However the family’s whiskey heritage dates back to distilling in Dublin in 1782 with Walter Teeling who set up a distillery in Marrowbone Lane in the Liberties.
Jack and his brother Stephen, Sales & Marketing Director, continue the Teeling entrepreneurial spirit and, while initially starting out as an Independent bottler, they are in the process of building the first new Dublin distillery in over 125 years to guarantee the future supply of whiskey and ensure they control the distilling process from grain to bottle.
