In 2015, Teeling Irish Whiskey opened Dublin’s first new distillery in 125 years.
Brothers Jack and Stephen Teeling have recently achieved another significant milestone with the launch of Teeling Single Pot Still, the company’s interpretation of this classic whiskey style that is unique to Ireland.
In this interview recorded on May 29, 2020, Stephen and I discuss the origins of single pot still.
He explains the significance this new product has to the Teeling family, which has an association with Irish whiskey dating back to 1782.
Also on the agenda is the company’s launch of a 28-year-old single malt whiskey, following on from the 24-year-old that was named world’s best single malt at the World Whiskies Awards 2019.
And we take a look at the evolution of Irish whiskey more broadly, and the reasons behind the Teelings’ decision to sell a minority share of their business to Bacardi Limited in 2017.
But first, you’ll hear from Stephen how Teeling Whiskey has been handling the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
