The Teeling family whiskey heritage dates back to the distilling in Dublin in 1782 when Walter Teeling set up a distillery in the Marrowbone Lane in the Liberties. Their award winning Single Grain Whiskey is now available in the US and we had the pleasure of trying some. Teeling Single Grain is one of only a handful of single grain bottlings in the world. It uses a completely unique maturation process fully maturing the whiskey in Californian red wine barrels. The whiskey is made by combining unique ingredients, with maize/corn dominating and uses modern column distillation to produce the whiskey, which is exceptionally clean and smooth with a touch of sweetness. Give it a try this St. Patrick’s Day!
