Dublin’s first new distillery in 125 years, The Teeling Whiskey Company will now be exporting to Australia.

Considered one of Ireland’s leading whiskey producers, Teeling has complete control over all aspects of its whiskey production from grain to bottle. This has allowed the company to drive innovation and gain a solid reputation within the whiskey category.

Although the distillery itself is new, the family’s whiskey heritage dates back to 1782 when Walter Teeling had a distillery in the Liberties of Dublin. As part of a new generation of Irish whiskey makers, Teeling says that they are respectful to the heritage of Irish whiskey, but also confident in forging a new future for the Irish whiskey category.

“It is exciting to be working with an Irish whiskey company that takes pride in the quality of their product and is passionate about their heritage while driving innovation and choice within the Irish Whiskey category,” says national brand manager, Eddie Brook.

Teeling Whiskey will be distributed on-premise in Australia by SouthTrade International. The range includes signature whiskey; Teeling Small Batch Rum Cask Finish, along with Teeling Single Grain, Single Malt, and Poitin.
