Teeling Whiskey Release Rare 13-Year-Old Single Grain

This Limited Release is only the second Teeling Single Grain bottling

Teeling Whiskey has released the latest in our award-winning Single Grain range with our new Teeling 13-Year-Old Irish Single Grain.  The 13-Year-Old release consists of triple distilled Irish whiskey distilled predominantly from maize, initially matured for 9 years in ex-Bourbon barrels before being given extra maturation for over 4 years in ex-Bordeaux Red Wine casks and bottled at 50% ABV to capture all its natural flavour.
 
This release is only Teeling Whiskey’s second and oldest release of Single Grain. It follows on from the multi-award winning core offering of Teeling Whiskey Single Grain which was first released in 2013 and has been honoured on numerous occasions as the World’s Best Irish Single Grain. This new, older expression of Teeling Single Grain also differs through its dual cask maturation. The initial Bourbon cask maturation produces a beautiful base of sweet vanilla and caramel with buttery oak, which is then complimented by the extra aging in the Bordeaux Red Wine casks, layering on a beautiful bouquet of red berry and soft orchard fruits with honey notes. This new release adds another string to the bow of an exciting new sub-category of Irish and global whiskey with whiskey drinkers becoming more knowledgeable and interested in what Single Grain can offer.
Jack Teeling commented, “It’s a little known fact that the majority of Irish whiskey sold is actually grain whiskey as it makes up the majority of the composition in big multinational owned brands of Irish whiskey. As such, since our formation we have been keen to ensure we offered unique and interesting expressions of Teeling Single Grain Whiskey. Our new 13-Year-Old release is a further representation of our mission to help drive the continued expansion of the Irish whiskey category through unique bottlings and expressions.” 

The Teeling 13-Year-Old Single Grain will be available initially in the Teeling Whiskey Distillery, Celtic Whiskey Shop and very select Irish retailers at a RRP of €85 per 70cl, before being rolled out to a range of International markets across Asia and Europe over the next few months.
