|World Whiskies Awards – World Best Irish Grain|
Teeling Single Grain is a wholly unique style within Irish Whiskey, pushing the boundaries of convention, at the interest of where old world meets new. Although most Irish blends contain a significant corn element, we wanted to create a unique flavour expression by focusing exclusively on grain whiskey, aged exclusively using Cabernet Sauvignon casks from the Napa Valley California, imparting a highly distinct red-berry and tannic profile. Bottling at 46% with no chill filtration, completes this whiskey of true character.
This highly unique style is almost entirely corn-based. The 95%+ corn base imparts a distinctly sweet flavour profile.
The Process of column distillation provides a light, soft, neutral base to layer flavour through unique barrel choice in the next step.
The wholly unique use of red wine barrels from the Napa Valley, California, imparts a red berry influence, with a touch of tannic spice.
