Teeling Whiskey Distillery has welcomed more than 300,000 visitors since it opened in 2015

The first cask of single pot still from the Teeling Whiskey Distillery will be a celebratory release of 250 bottles in August, followed by the first commercial release of the new Teeling Single Pot Still in October.

As part of its three-year anniversary celebrations, the distillery also announced that since it opened in 2015, Teeling has welcomed more than 350,000 guests to its visitor centre and generated almost €9 million (US$104.43m) in revenue for the Teeling Whiskey Company.

Jack Teeling, founder and managing director of Teeling Whiskey, said: “The Teeling Distillery visitor centre provides a unique and unrivalled experience for visitors to Dublin and its success since opening in 2015 is something we are very proud of.

“We are now at a very exciting and significant stage of our journey with the first whiskey from our new distillery just about to come of age – the first Dublin whiskey distilled in the capital for over 40 years.”

To mark the anniversary, Teeling has created a schedule of Dublin Rising events, including a pop-up exhibition celebrating some of the local collaborations the distillery has been involved in over the years, as well as designing a Birthday Batch cocktail that will be available to those who join the Teeling Tasting tours.

A larger summer series will run from June to August, designed to showcase independent Irish music, Dublin culture and Dublin food. More information will be revealed on Teeling Whiskey’s social media pages in the next few days.

In April, Teeling launched the fifth and final whiskey in its The Revival Commemorative Series.

Meanwhile, in February Teeling launched a 34-year-old bottling, thought to be the oldest Irish single malt whiskey in the world.
