Dublin-based whiskey distillery Teeling has named Maverick Drinks the exclusive UK distributor for its collection of whiskies.
Teeling’s core range features three bottlings. Its Small Batch Whiskey is finished in central American rum casks, which impart a “subtle dried fruit character” on the spirit, the Single Grain has a red grape and berry profile from time spent in red wine casks, and the Single Malt bottling is described as “intensely fruity with bitter chocolate notes”.
All three whiskies, alongside the full range of products from Teeling, will join the Maverick Drinks portfolio and are available to UK partners from 1 January 2019.
Jack Teeling, managing director & founder of Teeling Whiskey, said: “I would like to thank Marussia Beverages UK for all their hard work on our portfolio since 2013.
“As both of our businesses are evolving we felt it was time for a change and feel that Maverick Drinks are best placed to evolve our business in the UK market for the years to come”.
Michael Vachon, head of brand development at Maverick Drinks, added: “Teeling is exactly the kind of brand we are always looking for. It has everything — great design, extraordinary value,
wonderful people, a real link to the community, and delicious, award-winning liquid. We’re excited to have them as partners and proud to have them as friends.”
