Dublin Whiskey is Reborn with Auction of First Dublin Distilled Whiskey from the Teeling Whiskey Distillery
Unique opportunity to own a piece of Irish whiskey history while donating to worthwhile causes
Teeling Whiskey, Ireland’s leading progressive whiskey producer, has announced that in just a weeks’ time, it will be celebrating the coming of age of its Single Pot Still by auctioning off the first one hundred celebratory bottles to whiskey fans worldwide. Partnering with www.WhiskyAuctioneer.com, the auction, which will run from Friday week, the 31st of August until the 10th of September, will see all profits raised from the sale donated to charitable causes based where the Teeling Whiskey Distillery is located in Dublin’s Liberties.
The arrival of Teeling Whiskey Single Pot Still, the first Dublin distilled whiskey from the Teeling Whiskey Distillery, is a landmark occasion for Ireland’s whiskey industry and in particular for Dublin. Dublin whiskey and its distilleries were at the forefront of the previous golden era for Irish whiskey in the 19th century and it was a very dark day for Irish whiskey when during the 1970s these last remaining distilleries closed their doors. The opening of the Teeling Whiskey Distillery in 2015 marked a new chapter in the history of Dublin whiskey distilling, firmly putting Dublin and Teeling Whiskey at the forefront of a new wave of distilleries, that are driving a new golden era for Irish whiskey.
By purchasing one of the first celebratory Teeling Single Pot Still bottles, Irish whiskey drinkers and collectors can avail of a rare opportunity to own a piece of Irish whiskey history while contributing to very worthy causes. The online auction, which is open to Irish whiskey fans from around the world, will run for two weeks and will be the first time an Irish whiskey distillery will auction off its first ever bottling. This is the first release of Teeling Single Pot Still Whiskey, produced from a recipe of 50% un-malted barley and 50% malted barley, a uniquely Irish mash bill made famous by Dublin distillers, distilled in 2015 in the Teeling Whiskey Distillery and aged fully for over 3 years in a high quality and unique ex-Muscat barrel.
Commenting on the Single Pot Still celebratory release, Jack Teeling, Founder and Managing Director of Teeling Whiskey said:
“When the Teeling Whiskey Company was formed in 2012, my vision was to revive Irish whiskey distilling in Dublin and put the capital back at the top table of whiskey producing areas in the world. While we have achieved a lot over the subsequent 6 years the release of our own Dublin distilled whiskey completes the revival of the craft of distilling in Dublin and hopefully draws us into a new renaissance for not only Teeling Whiskey but Dublin distilled Irish whiskey as a whole.
The Liberties area of Dublin has been very good to us, so we want to use our very first release as an opportunity to give something back. This is why we want to ensure we get the very best price for a piece of Irish whiskey history, through working with the guys at www.Whiskyauctioneer.com. This will allow Teeling Whiskey fans from all over the world to get a chance to own one of our very first bottlings of our first distillate from our new distillery.”
The auction of Teeling Whiskey’s first Single Pot Still release, in partnership with www.Whiskyauctioneer.com, follows other such successful auctions through this platform for The Milk & Honey Distillery, Israel’s first whisky distillery and most recently for The Lakes Distillery based in the Cumbrias in England, which achieved a world record for the most expensive bottle of whiskey sold via auction for a new distillery. The Lakes Distillery Bottle No. 1 sold for £7,900 and each of the 99 other bottles sold thereafter, achieved an average price of £900 per bottle.
