Teeling Whiskey Unveils World's First Crystal Single Malt Irish Whiskey

Teeling Whiskey are proud to announce the release of the highly anticipated Teeling Crystal Single Malt. This innovative expression pushes the boundaries of Irish Whiskey craftsmanship through the use of a highly atypical mash bill and innovative cask maturation techniques, as a limited expression of this Award-Winning Single Malt. This is the World's First Crystal Single Malt Irish Whiskey.

Crystal Malt is created when the sugars that are naturally formed during the traditional malting process are crystallised through heat treatment in a closed system that prevents the moisture from escaping. This produces a highly distinctive toffee-like flavour, along with hints of tropical fruits.

Limited to only 18,000 bottles, the Teeling Crystal Single Malt underwent triple distillation at Teeling's Dublin Distillery. It comprises a Single Malt crafted by incorporating Crystal Malt into the mash bill, with subsequent maturation occurring exclusively in Virgin American Oak Casks. It is bottled at 46%, with no chill filtration, presenting an Irish whiskey of genuine character.

Jack Teeling, Founder and Managing Director of Teeling Whiskey commented:

We are delighted to partner with Dublin Airport to bring this exceptional Crystal Single Malt release to global travellers and whiskey enthusiasts. This release is a true embodiment of our commitment to innovation and quality, and we are proud to showcase the best of Irish whiskey craftsmanship.

Tracey Jordan, Liquor Buyer, The Loop said:

“We are thrilled to be kicking off the New year with a very special collaboration with Teeling Whiskey. The release of the limited-edition Crystal Malt, available exclusively at The Loop duty free, demonstrates our continued commitment to sourcing the very finest and unique whiskeys for our customers. We are delighted to welcome yet another world exclusive to The Irish Whiskey Collection in Dublin and Cork airports and online at The Loop.

The Teeling Crystal Single Malt will be available exclusively for purchase at The Loop, Dublin Airport's world-class shopping destination, ensuring that travellers departing from or transiting through Dublin have the opportunity to acquire this limited-edition masterpiece before being rolled out to key export markets later in 2024. Available in 70cl bottles and priced at €80 RRP.
