Teeling Whiskey, Ireland’s leading independent Irish whiskey producer, is proud to unveil the third bottling of “The Revival”, a limited edition commemorative Single Malt. The Revival Volume III is being released to celebrate the 18-month anniversary of the opening of the Teeling Whiskey Distillery and will be limited to only 10,000 bottles.
The original Revival bottling was produced in 2015 to mark the opening of the Teeling Whiskey Distillery, the first new distillery in Dublin in over 125 years. The third edition of this bottling consists of a 14-Year-Old Single Malt Irish whiskey distilled in 2002, initially matured in ex-Bourbon casks before being given further maturation in 350 litre ex-Pineau Des Charentes casks to impart an extra pressed grape and dried fruit flavour unique to Irish whiskey. Further, the Revival Vol. III has been bottled at 46% ABV with no chill filtration to complete an Irish whiskey of true character.
The Revival Vol. III joins Teeling Whiskey’s range of award winning Irish whiskeys which have collected over 100 international awards over the past four years. The maturation from the ex-Pineau Des Charentes casks creates a unique palette pleasing taste profile, reminiscent of dried fruit and toffee pineapple rounded off with a toasted almond and dark chocolate bitterness that’s balanced perfectly with a lingering soft sweetness. A signature bouquet of honey and hazelnuts flavours tops off the dark chocolate undertones of this limited edition Single Malt.
Jack Teeling, Founder and Managing Director of the Teeling Whiskey Company, commented,
“It is hard to believe we are just 18 months away from having Irish whiskey distilled from our new distillery in Dublin and to honour this half way point we have decided to release something very unique to mark the occasion with the first ever Pineau des Charentes finished Irish whiskey. Our third Revival release will be limited to only 10,000 bottles and sold both through our distillery as well as our domestic and international distributors.”
Pineau des Charentes is a regional French aperitif, made in the southwestern regions of Charente, Charente-Maritime and, to a much lesser extent, Dordogne in western France. It is a fortified wine made from either fresh, unfermented grape juice or a blend of lightly fermented grape must, to which a Cognac eau-de-vie is added and then matured in oak barrels.
The Revival Vol III 14-Year-Old is available exclusively in Northern Ireland through Drinks Inc.
