The Teeling Whiskey Company (TWC) has continued to build on its reputation as the leading independent Irish whiskey company by winning a further 16 medals for its range of premium Irish whiskeys at spirits competitions around the world. In just over two years, the Teeling Whiskey family of premium Irish whiskeys has picked up a total of 37 awards and honours worldwide.
At the annual Irish Whiskey Masters, held in London, TWC scooped a hat-trick of top honours, receiving three Masters Titles for each release within its Vintage Reserve range of Irish Single Malts. Consisting of some of the oldest and rarest Irish whiskey ever released, the 21 Year Old Silver Reserve, 26 Year Old Gold Reserve and 30 Year Old Platinum Reserve were honoured for their world class quality. The Teeling Whiskey Small Batch Blend was also awarded Gold by the judges on the night.
Adding to this success, the Teeling Whiskey 30 Year Old Single Malt Platinum Reserve was awarded Gold ‘Outstanding’ at the 2014 International Wine & Spirit Competition (IWSC); deemed to be one of the most authoritative, respected and influential spirits competitions in the world. The Teeling Whiskey Company took home a total of five medals from the competition and furthermore has been shortlisted for the prestigious IWSC Overall Boutique Distiller of the Year Award, the winner of which will be announced at an awards banquet in November.
Commenting on the latest wave of International accolades, Jack Teeling, founder of The Teeling Whiskey Company, said, “We are truly honoured for our whiskeys to be so widely recognised at the biggest competitions in the whiskey world, especially at such an early stage in the development of Teeling Whiskey. With construction about to get underway at our new distillery in Dublin, we hope to be able to build on these awards and continue to provide high quality and unique expressions to Irish whiskey drinkers around the world.“
The Teeling Whiskey Company was founded by Jack Teeling in 2012 to revive his family-old trademark of Irish whiskey and bring distilling back to Dublin, where Walter Teeling had a distillery in the Liberties in the 18th century.
In January 2014, The Teeling Whiskey Company announced a €10 million investment in a new distillery and visitor centre at Newmarket in The Liberties. This will be the first new distillery in the city in 125 years and will create at least 100 jobs during the construction phase and 30 permanent jobs when fully operational.
