The most influential people in Irish whiskey

15th March, 2015 by Amy Hopkins

Jack and Stephen Teeling

Jack-and-Stephen-TeelingJack Teeling, son of John Teeling and founder of Irish whiskey bottler The Teeling Whiskey Co., last year revealed plans to bring Irish whiskey distillation back to Dublin for the first time in almost 125 years.

Jack has said he hopes the €10m euro distillery will diversify the Irish whiskey category and offer greater variety of flavour. The company had already demonstrated its innovative credentials with the recent launch of a single grain expression and no-age-statement single malt aged in five wine casks.

Teeling’s brother, Stephen, has also played a significant role in enhancing the sector. He adopted the role of marketing manager for Irish whiskey at Beam Inc when the firm acquired Cooley, but left the role to work as sales and marketing manager at The Teeling Whiskey Company.
