Teeling is releasing Single Pot Still, the first whiskey expression created at the brand’s new Dublin-based distillery.
Available to order from the end of September, the whiskey is crafted using a traditional Dublin pot still recipe of 50% un-malted spring barley and 50% malted barley which is triple distilled and matured in a combination of virgin oak, ex-bourbon and sherry barrels.
Non-chill filtered and bottled at 46% ABV, Teeling Single Pot Still has “aromas of cinnamon, grapefruit, cream soda and roasted almonds”.
According to Teeling, it offers an initial white pepper flavour on the tongue, which gives way to ripe kumquats, peaches and cream and a hint of honey, followed by a dry finish with “lingering spice and dark muscovado sugar sweetness.”
In 2015, Teeling Whiskey became the first Dublin distillery to open in the city for 125 years, reviving a long-standing tradition of whiskey distillation in the capital.
The new Single Pot Still whiskey is the first whiskey to be produced at the new distillery, signalling a return to the golden era of Irish whiskey distillation in Dublin.
Stephen Teeling, co-owner and sales & marketing director at Teeling Whiskey, said: “When we launched Teeling Whiskey in 2012, our dream was to restore Dublin to its former whiskey distilling glory.
“Launching our first commercial release to be distilled 100% at the new Dublin distillery completes this revival, and we hope it will be just the start of a new whiskey distilling renaissance in Dublin.”
Teeling Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey is being brought to the UK by Maverick Drinks. It will be available to taste for the first time in the UK at the Whisky Show on 28 and 29 September.
