Whiskey making and entrepreneurship has been in the Teeling genes as far back as 1782, when Walter Teeling set up a small craft distillery on Marrowbone Lane, Dublin 8. Right back in the heart of the Liberties district of Dublin city, Jack and Stephen Teeling, the latest generation of whiskey makers, set up the Teeling Whiskey Company in 2012. In March 2015 they opened the Teeling Whiskey Distillery the first new distillery in Dublin in over 125 years, and just a stone’s throw from their ancestral distillery, right in the heart of the Golden Triangle, the historic distilling district of the city.
Poitin is a clear non-aged spirit that has been distilled in Ireland for over 1000 years – in fact Poitin pre-dates Irish Whiskey. Poitin was outlawed in 1661 – this drove the whole industry underground until its recent revival. The Teeling Whiskey Company has released a modern high-quality bottling of Poitin that consists of non-aged new make Irish Whiskey spirit bottled at 52.5%.
