Teeling releases ‘world’s oldest’ Irish whiskey

Teeling Whiskey has released two expressions from its Vintage Reserve collection including a 30-year-old which it claims is the oldest single malt Irish whiskey in the world.

TWC 26 YO Single Malt

Just 250 bottles of Teeling’s Platinum Reserve 30 Year Old, double distilled in 1983 and left left to rest for over 30 years in a Bourbon cask, have been produced making it one of the oldest and rarest Irish whiskeys in the world.

Teeling’s second release, the 26-year-old Gold Reserve, is a single malt Irish whiskey doubled distilled in 1987 and aged firstly in Bourbon and then white Burgundy casks – the first Irish whiskey to be finished in such a cask.

Jack Teeling, founder of the Teeling Whiskey Company, said: “We are extremely proud to be able to release some of the oldest ever bottlings of Irish Single Malt with our Vintage Reserve Collection.

“These offerings are central to our goal to play the lead role in bringing an independent voice back to the Irish whiskey category and will help drive diversity in the category by introducing interesting and unique small batch bottlings of Irish whiskey. With the 30 Year Old in particular we give people the ability to taste and collect part of Irish whiskey history at a time of a new Golden Era for the category.”TWC 30 YO Single Malt

The Gold Reserve 26 Year Old will retail for €475.00 (USD$600.00 / GBP£400.00), while the Platinum Reserve will retail for €1,500.00 (USD$2,000.00 / GBP£1,200.00)

Both products will be available initially through Dublin Airport and the Celtic Whiskey Store, to be rolled out later to select international markets and travel retailers.
