Irish award-winning Teeling Whiskey trio arrives in South Africa in time for St Patrick’s Day!
For local whiskey enthusiasts it’s the perfect time to raise a dram as with St Patrick's Day being celebrated on 17 March. Teeling Whiskey, Ireland’s most progressive whiskey producer, brings the taste and spirit of Ireland to South African whiskey fans with the national release of the Teeling Trinity: Teeling Small Batch Whiskey, Teeling Single Grain Whiskey and Teeling Single Malt Irish Whiskey.
Teeling Whiskey is best known for redefining and reigniting the Irish Whiskey category through innovation and unexpected flavour. In 2015, Teeling Whiskey opened the first distillery in Dublin in over 125 years with Founders, Jack and Stephen Teeling, and Head Distiller, Alex Chasko, approaching craft whiskey with respect for generations passed, but with the confidence to forge the next chapter in Dublin distilling. Varying the time, style and number of barrels used during the maturation process results in a portfolio of whiskeys that are complex and full of character.
In six short years, Teeling Whiskey has garnered 130 international awards and has been recognised as category-leaders worldwide. In 2019, Teeling’s 24 YO Single Malt was named the World’s Best Single Malt at the World Whiskies Awards which was the first Irish Whiskey to receive this accolade. With these feathers in their cap, Teeling Whiskey expressions have grown popular across the world, reigniting enthusiasm for Irish Whiskey and globally reinvigorating the whiskey industry.
In celebration of St Patrick’s Day, Head Distiller, Alex Chasko, will host guests to introduce Teeling Whiskey to South African whiskey enthusiasts during an exclusive Virtual Tasting co-hosted by local aficionados and award-winning whisky retailer WhiskyBrother.

More on the Teeling Trinity
- Small Batch
Hand-selected casks of grain and malt whiskey are fully aged in bourbon barrels, then married together in Central American rum casks. This expression offers an inviting nose where vanilla and spice dance with bright sweet notes of rum. The palate has a solid rum influence that creates a unique smooth, sweet, and slightly woody marriage that sparkles on the tongue. Exotic fruit notes push through as well, with a sweet-spicy finish complemented by lingering woody undertones.
- Teeling Single Grain
Crafted using an unconventional mash bill consisting of 95% corn and 5% malted barley, The Teeling Single Grain is matured exclusively in French oak cabernet sauvignon red wine casks from California. The nose opens with spice and fruit notes that mingle with an underlying sweet, sugary note. The palate has a silky smooth mouthfeel, with a touch of spice and deep berry notes that balance the sweet undertones. The tannic influence of the red wine creates a unique, short, dry finish, encouraging another sip.
- Teeling Single Malt
The Teeling Single Malt is distilled from 100% malted barley, matured, and finished in five distinct wine casks (sherry, port, madeira, white burgundy, cabernet sauvignon). The unique spirit is vibrant with aromas of melon, figs, toffee, and lemon pushing through on the nose, whilst the palate gives notes of dried fruits, citrus, vanilla, spice, and cloves. This whiskey finishes with a long sweetness in harmony with dry tannins from the wood.
