With a history of making spirits that dates back to the 1700’s, Stephen Teeling’s family has probably done more to shape the concept of what we call Irish Whiskey than any other family in Ireland. Now the Teeling family is about to open Dublin’s first new distillery in over 125 years, bringing the legacy of his family’s long relationship with his country’s spirit of choice full circle.
Located in Newmarket, an area of Dublin long associated with brewing and distilling, the new Teeling Distillery features three copper pot stills, reviving a format for distilling based on the old “Dublin style” of making whiskies. Stephen, along with his brother Jack, will oversee the new operation which will focus producing small batch whiskies in 3-4 different interpretations.
