The Spirit Of Dublin
Whiskey making and entrepreneurship have been in the Teeling genes as far back as 1782. When Walter Teeling set up a small craft distillery on Marrowbone Lane, Dublin 8. Right back in the heart of the Liberties district of Dublin. Jack and Stephen Teeling, the latest generation of whiskey makers, set up the Teeling Whiskey Company in 2012.
A Craft Revival
In March 2015 they opened the Teeling Whiskey Distillery the first new distillery in Dublin in over 125 years. Just a stone’s throw from their old distillery. In the heart of the Golden Triangle, the historic distilling district of Dublin. With one eye on the past, but looking to the future, we’re the new generation of Dublin distillers. In addition, their approach to craft with respect for generations passed but with the confidence; to forge the next chapter of Irish and Dublin whiskey.
In the late 18th and early 19th century, Irish whiskey ruled the world, and Dublin whiskey was king. The seal of Dublin on your bottle meant quality and craft – Dublin meant distilleries – lots of them. From the early artisan producers on the outskirts of the city grew the great titans of the distilling industry. Certainly, known for their superior quality and character, the bold and unique Spirit of Dublin flowed from the 3 corners of the Golden Triangle to the 4 corners of the world.
As the 20th century dawned, a perfect storm loomed. A reluctance to move with new production techniques left Dublin distillers in the wake of the Scottish, and coupled with a war of independence at home and prohibition in the United States, the Irish whiskey industry was brought to its knees. The copper pot stills of the Golden Triangle fell cold. On the wind that once carried the unmistakable scent of barley, silence hung. The last distillery of the first golden era of Dublin Whiskey, in 1976, ran dry.
About Irish Whiskey
Brought to the brink of near extinction, Irish whiskey refused to back down. Now a new generation of whiskey drinkers is discovering, enjoying and embracing the liquid that once conquered the world. Since 1990, Irish whiskey has been the fastest-growing premium spirit globally– truly a new Golden Era has begun. With renewed interest in Irish whiskey at home and abroad, we are seeing the revival of hand-crafted, flavoursome and unique whiskeys,
This era defined by small, craft producers, and Teeling Whiskey is proud to be leading the way, with innovation and liquid excellence at the core of everything they do. Irish whiskey experienced dynamic growth for over twenty years, yet still only commands 5% of the global market. The industry expects to double over the next ten years, meaning this new Golden Era is just beginning.
