Teeling Single Grain Irish Whiskey

irish_tee3.jpgTeeling Whisky is a relative newcomer to the Irish whiskey scene. Brothers Jack and Stephen Teeling "resurrected" their ancestral family brand in 2011 as a small batch craft distillery. In fact, theirs was the first new distillery in Dublin in over 125 years. 

With corn making up the bulk of the mashbill, the single grain whiskey is distilled through a column still and, in a bold move, is fully matured in ex-Cabernet Sauvignon red wine barrels sourced from California. After an unspecified period of maturation, the non chill-filtered whiskey is bottled at 46% ABV.

    This looks amazing, something my husband would love. His birth is coming up soon as well.

    Hi Sherry, I think you might be outta luck on this one. Only 9000 bottles of this delicious whisky were produced and I'd wager most - if not all - purveyors have been sold out for quite some time now. If you're looking to sample it, I'd recommend visiting your local whisky bar and checking their list of Canadian whisky offerings. Your only other option would be to try and track down someone willing to give up their bottle? I've got one 2oz sample tucked away and, sorry, I'm keeping it all to myself! :) Good luck! Let us know if you find a bottle!
