30. Teeling Ginger Beer Cask

November saw the launch of what is thought to be the first Irish whiskey finished in ginger beer casks. The 46% ABV product was created as part of a collaboration between Irish whiskey producer Teeling and London’s Umbrella Brewing.

Teeling master distiller Alex Chasko hand selected casks of ginger beer from Umbrella Brewing to create the Irish whiskey. Each cask was used to marry Teeling’s Small Batch whiskey, resulting in flavours of ginger, rich molasses and subtle hints of malt. The whiskey is said to have a hint of lasting spice on the finish.
