Teeling Whiskey Distillery in the Liberities – Dublin City Ireland
Teeling’s distillery officially opened it’s doors to the public on Saturday the 13th of June 2015. After selling their shares in Cooley and Kilbeggan distillery’s on December 16th 2011, Jack was sure he wanted to continue working in the whiskey industry but withthis time his very own distillery. Along with his brother this dream was possible. They started work immediately and looked to Dublin and it’s colourful whiskey history, that was where they decided they had to bring back distilling to Dublin’s fair city.
They did hit a few hurdles when building their beautifully designed distillery but where they lucked out was in securing their master distiller; Alex Chasco. Alex had worked with them in Cooley and Kilbeggan so was very keen to take on this journey with them. Innovation was something Alex is know for, hence he was a perfect fit for Team Teeling.
The Teeling distillery is located in the heart of the historical whiskey district of the Dublin Liberties. They are the first to distill again in Dublin city in over forty years as well as being the first new distillery in Dublin in over 125 years. It is a real working distillery where you are actually given the chance to walk through the whiskey process from the moment the grain hits the mill right through to the aromatic liquid flowing through their shimmering copper pot stills.
The Spirit of Dublin is alive and well with Teelings.
