The Teeling Whiskey Company is to launch two new ultra-premium expressions of Irish whiskey this week, honouring its promise to provide a greater breadth of choice within the category.

The Teeling Whiskey Company will release a 26 Year Old and 30 Year Old whiskey this week

The bottling group, headed by brothers Jack and Stephen Teeling, will add a limited edition 26-year-old and 30-year-old Irish single malt whiskeys to its portfolio.

The Teeling 26 Year Old has been aged for 25 years in ex-Bourbon casks, and given a further 11-month maturation in white Burgundy barrels before being bottled at 46% abv. Just 1,000 bottles of the expression will be released with an RRP of £385.

The Teeling 30 Year Old has been aged solely in ex-Bourbon casks and bottled at the same strength. Only 220 bottles will be available, with an RRP of £1,500, making the expression the rarest and most valuable in the Teeling Irish Whiskey range to date.

Both editions are non-chill filtered, and will be rolled out across the UK, Germany, France, Ireland and travel retail from next week.

“We have a role to play as an independent bottler to provide the depth and choice that’s needed to the category, particularly at the stage of evolution Irish whiskey’s going through,” Jack Teeling told The Spirits Business in 2012 when TWC first launched.

“The younger demographic that’s drinking the mainstream brands like Jameson and Tullamore DEW needs some choice because they won’t stay drinking them their whole lives, they’ll need other things to try.

“Everything we do is trying to span the category and give trade and consumers a varied taste of Irish whiskey.”
