The second expression to be distilled at Teeling's new distillery and the first peated single malt to be distilled in Dublin, this unique Irish whiskey is aged in bourbon and Sauternes French wine casks.
In 1782, Walter Teeling opened a distillery along Marrowbone Lane in Dublin, Ireland. At the time, nearly 40 independent distilleries dotted the rolling Irish landscape, the majority of which were centralized in the industrial engine room of the city Ñ the Liberties. "Since 1782 the Teeling family has been crafting Irish Whiskey," says Jack Teeling, the founder of the Teeling Whiskey Company." The entrepreneurial spirit that inspired Walter Teeling back in the 18th century has not been diluted over the years and the latest generation of Teelings are committed to innovating and creating unique Irish whiskeys."Teeling Blackpitts is a peated Irish whiskey _ the first of its kind to be distilled in Dublin, as well as the second whiskey to be distilled at Teeling's new distillery. It's a triple-distilled single malt that is crafted with peated barley from Glenesk in Speyside. It's the triple distillation that brings the phenol level down, making for a gentler smokiness than its Scottish counterparts. The expression is aged in a combination of ex-Bourbon and ex-Sauternes French wine casks, then bottled without chill filtration at 92 proof. The name is a reference to the Blackpitts area behind the distillery, which was famous for its abundance of malting houses.
