Travel Log from Dublin, Ireland.
Interview with Chris Hayes, Distillery Brand Ambassador from Teeling Irish Whiskey.
We at Bartender Journey LOVE Ireland, Irish whiskey and Irish pubs so we’re excited to bring you episode No. 268, Travel Log directly from Dublin, Ireland!
Last year for St. Paddy’s Day, Episode No. 245, Hazel interviewed Stephen Teeling at Blacktail in NYC and we had a great time at their St. Patrick’s Day party with US Brand Ambassador, Conor Sweeney. If you haven’t heard it yet, give it a listen.
So thanks to the Teeling team again, at one of the stops on the Teeling National Irish Coffee Day at My Friend Duke in NYC with Jody McLoughlin, @whiskeydruid on IG , we were able to set up a tour and interview with Chris Hayes, @chris_hayes_twc on IG, Teeling Distillery Brand Ambassador. Special thanks to Rebecca Bell and Sandra Rudelic from Teeling for making this happen!
Chris chats with Brian about the history of the Irish whiskey market, traditional Irish whiskey distillation of pot still vs. column still, introducing Irish whiskey to Scotch drinkers and what makes the Teeling Irish coffee different from other Irish coffees.
If you're not familiar with the trinity of Teeling whiskeys they are: the Small Batch, Single Grain and Single Malt.
Since we’ve spoken to Teeling last year, they’ve made an amazing splash in the World of Whisk(e)y, including breaking the world record for most expensive auction with their Teeling Whiskey Celebratory Single Pot Still sold online via Whisky Auctioneer in September 2018 at £10,000, ,the highest price ever sold by a whiskey from a new disitllery and was also the first release of whiskey surpassing the previous record of £7.900 that was distilled at their Dublin site.*
If you're fortunate enough to be in Dublin, make certain to book your visit to Teeling!
