Teeling Whiskey Wonders of Wood

Teeling Whiskey announced the U.S. release of the first expression in the Wonders of Wood Series of Single Pot Still.

A limited edition bottling, the Teeling Wonders of Wood Single Pot Still Chinkapin Oak Whiskey ($99) is part of an innovative mission to push the boundaries of flavour, by utilizing unique styles of wood for the maturation of the award-winning Teeling Single Pot Still Whiskey.

The first edition of the Wonders of Wood bottling consists of Single Pot Still crafted from a recipe of 50% malted barley and 50% unmalted barley, which has been triple distilled at the Teeling Whiskey Distillery in Dublin and then fully matured in virgin Chinkapin American White Oak barrels.

Chinkapin oak is native to Eastern and Central North America and features a wide wood grain that is similar in composition to Chestnut Oak. When used for the maturation of Irish whiskey it produces a truly unique taste experience not traditionally found in Irish whiskey. Despite only recently being bottled, this special whiskey has already been honored at the 2022 World Whiskies Awards, picking up the title of the World’s Best Irish Single Pot Still.

Teeling Whiskey also announced its Wonders of Wood mission, in which it will work with the Tree Council of Ireland on the reforestation of woodland. This Spring, they will be planting an acre of exclusively native Irish trees in the Glencree region of County Wicklow just outside of Dublin.

Jack Teeling, Founder and Managing Director of Teeling Whiskey commented, “Wood is an amazing, sustainable and environmentally friendly material that plays a huge role in developing the flavour and character of a whiskey as it matures. We are truly in wonder of the role wood has in crafting our Teeling Whiskeys as well as its impact on the wider environment.”

Bottled at 50% ABV in a unique embossed bottle with a quality gift box, the new release will be available throughout the U.S.
