Teeling is an independent Irish whiskey company dedicated to bringing choice and breadth back to the Irish whiskey category through small batch releases of interesting and flavoursome bottlings. The Single Grain was awarded World’s Best Grain at the World Whiskies Awards, 2014, and is one of only a handful of Single Grain Bottlings in the world. It is fully matured in Californian red wine barrels resulting in an intensely fruity and beautifully amber liquid. The nose has spice and fruit notes, while the palate lush red berries and grapes, with drying tannin effect at the end. The finish is dry, and dominated by wood and spice.
We are delighted to stock this remarkable, award-winning whiskey, aged, curiously, in Californian red wine barrels, which shows a different side to Irish whiskey. Alter Ego: Sinead O’Connor; with a unique, sweet delivery and strength of character that changes its landscape entirely. Undoubtedly fruity, it is all the more loveable for it – just don’t try and interview it – you might end up bottling it.
