About the company

Whiskey making and entrepreneurship has been in the Teeling genes as far back as 1782, when Walter Teeling set up a small craft distillery on Marrowbone Lane in the industrial heart of Dublin City.

Since 2012, Jack and Stephen Teeling, the latest generation of Teeling Whiskey makers, have been putting their own mark on Irish Whiskey and came full circle in 2015 when they proudly opened the new Teeling Whiskey Distillery just down the road from where the original family distillery once stood. The Teeling Whiskey Distillery today is the first new distillery in Dublin for over 125 years.

Teeling Whiskey’s team are dedicated to bringing more choice and innovation into Irish Whiskey. Inspired by the influence of time and innovative cask maturation techniques, their young team of craftsmen and craftswomen are producing small batch bottlings of unique Irish Whiskeys. Teeling Whiskey’s goal is to retain the drinkability of Irish Whiskey while introducing new and interesting flavours to complement the naturally smooth and sweet taste of Irish Whiskey. They aim to encapsulate their passion for quality, authenticity and craft in every bottle of Teeling Whiskey

Key Sustainability Commitments

• Committed to Responsible Sourcing

Teeling are committed to increasing the percentage of raw materials sourced from suppliers with recognised certifications. They are developing sustainability initiatives with suppliers/primary producers, as well as developing packaging initiatives focused on improving the sustainability of packaging materials.

• Committed to Reducing their Environmental Impact

In early 2017, Teeling Whiskey Company commenced the GreenStart Program, in conjunction with Enterprise Ireland. This program centres around developing a formalised environmental management system, and assessing the viability of a number of energy- and water-saving initiatives in the distillery. Over the last few years Teeling have integrated their Origin Green commitments that focus on the manufacturing process into the overall Energy Management System for the company. They are now committing to establish energy reduction initiatives and renewable energy investments and commiting to a reduction of overall greenhouse gas emissions. They are also committing to initiatives to prevent and reduce waste, as well as reducing water consumption and improving wastewater systems.
