The Teeling Whiskey Company, Ireland’s leading independent Irish whiskey producer, has released an exclusive Single Barrel bottling programme just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. This series involves 12 individual casks of Irish Single Malt whiskey hand bottled for some of the top American on and off premises accounts on both the East and West Coast of the U.S.
The 2016 U.S. Single Barrel release consists of 13 Year Old Single Malt Irish whiskey distilled in 2002, and initially matured in ex-bourbon barrels for the first 12 years before being finished exclusively in ex-White Port barrels from the Carcavelos region of Portugal famous for its beautiful light fragrant fruity flavor.
The Teeling Whiskey Company is the first whiskey producer to ever use this type of White Port barrels to age whiskey and deliver a truly unique taste that works perfectly with the underlying taste characteristics of Irish whiskey. Each bottle of Single Malt is numbered, hand filled and bottled in its most natural form at cask/barrel strength.
Jack Teeling, founder of the Teeling Whiskey Company, commented, “We are delighted to be able to release such unique and innovative expressions of Teeling whiskey in the U.S. for St. Patrick’s Day. In conjunction with some of the leading U.S. retailers we continue to drive the choice and breadth of offerings for Irish whiskey drinkers.”
Teeling Whiskey Company is Ireland’s leading independent Irish whiskey producer with an award winning portfolio of unique and differentiated Irish whiskeys. The Teelings have been crafting Irish whiskey since 1782 and in 2015 returned home to their spiritual home with the opening of the Teeling Whiskey Distillery in city centre of Dublin. Teeling Whiskey has won over 70 International Awards over the last four years and is imported into the U.S through Infinium Spirits.
The exclusive Teeling Whiskey Single Barrel Series will retail for approximately $85.00 and will be available on shelf in selected spirits’ retailers in time for St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th 2016
