Since 1782 the Teeling family have been crafting Irish Whiskey. The Teeling’s are renowned for their vision in doing things diﬀerently and their Whiskeys embody this entrepreneurial spirit.
This award winning addition to the Teeling portfolio consists of hand selected casks fully matured in Californian Cabernet Sauvignon wine barrels, a completely unique process in Irish whiskey making.

"Produced by the next generation of the Teeling family - brothers Jack and Stephen - this is a superb whiskey that will appeal to wine lovers with an open mind and palate. The pair's Dublin-based distillery is a couple of years off completion yet, but their family's 30-year long involvement in whiskey making has paid off in the stock which they can work with.
This is a single-grain whiskey aged not in sherry or even bourbon casks, but rather in red wine casks. This shows that the Teelings aren't just custodians of an independent Irish wehiskey legacy, but more importantly, are a key part of the evolution of Irish whiskey. This is the exact opposite of pandering to a historical sense of Irishness or a tourism play - the Teelings want to explore whiskey's future rather than its past.
The whiskey itself is dazzling - toasty caramel with dark chocolate and smoky tones leap from the glass, soft glossy vanillin and butterscotch notes follow, with a flicker of smoke hitting the palate and leading to fine citric notes on the layered finish." - Tomas Clancy, The Sunday Business Post, 22nd June 2014
