Whiskey distiller Walter Teeling opened his distillery in Dublin, Ireland, in 1782. The whiskey he’d go on to produce blended select casks of grain and malt whiskey, which are then matured in oak barrels for up to seven years before being finished in casks previously used to mature rum for about six months. Take a whiff of it, and you’ll smell vanilla and warm spices; and if you have the opportunity to taste it, you’ll get notes of caramel, toffee, butterscotch, and molasses. Sound inviting? You’re in luck: This is the first time that Teeling Irish Whiskey has been available in the United States in over 230 years. Take a short visual tour of the Dublin distillery below.
