Soak up all you can on this Irish jaunt. The Teeling Whiskey Distillery Tour takes you on a journey of taste and discovery at Dublin’s newest whiskey distillery in 125 years upon opening its doors in 2015. Founded by Irish brothers Jack and Stephen Teeling in 2012, the Teeling Whiskey brand is a culmination of ingenuity, history, and forward-thinking.

Later, in 2015, they expanded the Teeling brand by opening a distillery in the historic neighborhood of The Liberties. You’ll find the rustic yet sophisticated Teeling Whiskey Distillery on 13–17 Newmarket, a short trip from the family’s original distillery.

Our guide focuses on three tours of theirs, from the standard “Teeling Tasting Tour” to the higher-end “Distillery Select Tasting Tour”.

Hang on to every word of the charismatic tour guide who’ll narrate half a millennium’s worth of the history of whiskey in Dublin at the on-site exhibition. After learning about the growth, decline, and resurgence of Irish whiskey, you’ll head to the production floor for a fully-immersive whiskey-making experience.

You’ll also learn about the history of the Teeling family and the pivotal role they’ve played in the re-emergence of Dublin whiskey. Then, top off your Teeling Distillery tour with a tasting of deliciously smooth Irish whiskey.

Teeling Trinity Tasting Tour

This tour is exactly like the fully guided Teeling Tasting Tour, except It’s better suited for those looking for more than the Teeling Small Batch and who aren’t into whiskey cocktails. On this tour, you’ll sample two Teeling whiskeys in addition to the Teeling Small Batch.

What we liked: Great if you’re seeking more than the Teeling Small Batch and cocktail.


INCLUDES:
  • Whiskey tasting
  • Fully guided tour of the distillery
  • Admission to the Exhibition Space

EXCLUDES:
  • Lunch
  • Private tour
  • Whiskeys besides those on the Teeling Trinity Tasting Tour

You’ll taste the full-flavored, creamy Teeling Small Batch and the sweet and light Teeling Small Grain. Finally, you’ll top it off with the smooth and strong 46% ABV Teeling Single Malt whiskey.

The Teeling Small Batch is the brand’s flagship whiskey. Thanks to no chill filtration, this Irish whiskey maintains its flavorful character. Think layers of cinnamon, vanilla, and oak.

Similarly, the triple-distilled Teeling Small Grain is velvety smooth and imparts a lightly sweet taste. This is partly due to it being matured in cabernet sauvignon wine casks. Plus, its trifecta of pepper, cloves, and nutmeg adds a deliciously mild spiciness to it.

With layers of flavors and aromas, what’s not there to love?
