To celebrate the rebirth and beginning of a new chapter in Irish Whiskey’s new Golden Era, Teeling Whiskey is proud to release the Teeling Renaissance, a limited series of Single Malt bottlings, celebrating the very best Teeling Whiskey has to offer.
The fourth bottling of The Renaissance Series consists of 18-Year-Old Single Malt that was aged initially in ex-bourbon barrels for over 16 years before being finished in high quality ex-red Pineau des Charentes fortified wine casks, imparting pressed grape and candied dried fruit flavours of apricot and pineapple character. Limited to just 9,000 bottles, the resulting Single Malt is then bottled at 46% with no chill filtration.
While the Teeling Distillery of today was officially opened in 2015, the brand’s history in Irish whisky actually stretches back to 1782, when a chap called Walter Teeling set up a distillery in the Liberties area of Dublin. Fast-forward to the present (not forgetting the era when John Teeling owned the Cooley Distillery, before selling it to Beam in 2011) and the Teelings are again at the forefront of Irish distilling. Identifying as a ‘progressive’ distillery, the team, led by Jack Teeling, his brother Stephen, and master distiller Alex Chasko, are leading the Irish whisky innovation charge. From the ‘re-imagined’ Dublin porter recipes and proprietary fermentation techniques used to create the Teeling wash to the three different stills in operation, the team pushes what’s possible in Irish whisky-making to create delicious drinks. This pioneering attitude is underscored by the fact that a whopping 25% of annual production is dedicated to whisky experiments. Exciting stuff.
