The Spirit Of Dublin – A Craft Revival

Dublin has traditionally been the heart of the Irish whiskey industry. During Walter Teelings time there were over 37 different distilleries in Dublin. The Liberties area of Dublin in particular was recognised as the epicenter for Dublin whiskey and was dubbed the ‘Golden Triangle’ due to the number of distilleries clustered in a one mile radius. During the 19th century Dublin whiskey became globally recognised as the Premier whiskey in the world.

Renowned for its “smooth” and unique “character” it sold at a premium to all other types of whiskey. As a result of this success some of the largest distilleries in the world emerged from these small craft Dublin distillers. Unfortunately as Irish whiskey fell on hard times so did distilling in Dublin and the last still ran cold in 1976 until now.

THE TEELING STORY

Since 1782 the Teeling Family has been crafting Irish whiskey and it all began with Walter. In 1782 Walter Teeling set up a craft distillery on Marrowbone Lane in the Liberties area of Dublin commencing a 230 year tradition of distilling for the Teeling family. From Walter Teeling to the latest generation of Teelings in Jack and Stephen who are carrying on the family’s legacy and forging a bright new future for distilling in Dublin and for Irish whiskey.
