Teeling has filled its 10,000th whiskey cask at its distillery in Dublin, Ireland

Today’s milestone achievement comes less than a month after Teeling released the first commercial bottling from its Dublin distillery – Teeling Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey.

The expression is made from a recipe of 50% un-malted barley and 50% malted barley, and is bottled at 46% abv.

Teeling became the first Dublin-based distillery in more than 125 years when its stills were fired up in 2015.

Over the past three years, Teeling has been experimenting with different recipes to create a range of flavours and whiskey styles that make up the 10,000 casks.

Jack Teeling, founder and managing director of Teeling Whiskey, said: “We have been delighted with the overall interest and response to our first Dublin-distilled whiskey with our Teeling Single Pot Still being officially our fastest-selling whiskey release.

“Filling of our 10,000th casks ties in with our strategy to ensure we have a wide range of styles and inventory to allow us to lead the evolution of the category as well as allow us to scale our business as our Irish whiskey continues to segment and premiumise. We look forward to helping drive a new golden era for Dublin and Irish whiskey.”
