This year’s St. Patrick’s Day is going to be Christmas for whiskey drinkers in the U.S. Teeling’s situated here in the heart of the Liberties, has just  released an exclusive Single Barrel bottling programme for St. Patrick’s Day.

It is a series of 12 individual  casks of Irish Single Malt whiskey. They have all been bottled and numbered and hand filled, to be exported to top American accounts on the East and West Coast of the United States.

The 2016 U.S. Single Barrel release consists of 13 Year Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey, distilled in 2002, and will be sold in its most natural form at cask and barrel strength. These were initially matured in ex-bourbon barrels for the first 12 years, before being finished in ex-White Port barrels from the Carcavelos region of Portugal.

“We are delighted to be able to release such unique and innovative expressions of Teeling whiskey in the U.S. For St. Patrick’s Day. In conjunction with some of the leading U.S. Retailers we continue to drive the choice and breadth of offerings for Irish whiskey drinkers,” Jack Teeling, one of the owners of Teeling Whiskey Distillery said.

The Teeling Whiskey Single Barrel Series will be available on shelf in time for St. Patrick’s Day on the 17th March 2016 at a retail prize of approximately $85.00. Teeling Whiskey has won over 70 International Awards over the last four years and this one promises to be the next winner with its unique white port barrel formula how will they go wrong this St. Patrick’s Day!

Teeling’s, who imports to the U.S. Through Infinium Spirits, have U.S. Accounts in Nevada, Colorado, Texas, Illinois, Kentucky, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Florida, New York and New Jersey.

The special thing about this Series is probably the fact that Teeling’s is the first distillery to use the White Port Barrels from Portugal. The Carcavelos region is well known for its fortified wine making, and vineyards. The off dry topaz coloured wines they make are flavoured with fruit and nutty aromas. After maturing the whiskeys in these barrels you will smell, taste and experience flavours of  lemon, cantaloupe, peach, white grapes, spice, vanilla, toasted wood and toffee with every sip of whiskey (this of course the testimony of whiskey drinkers that know their stuff).

St. Patrick’s Day, Ireland and the United States date back to the 18th century. It is believed that the first St. Patrick’s Day gathering took place in Boston in 1737. On this day a group of elite Irish men came together to celebrate “the Irish saint” over dinner. In 1766 the Irish Catholics living in New York started the tradition of parading; they were all members of the British Army. St. Patrick, the man who brought Christianity to a once pagan country, was a patron saint who lived in Ireland in the fifth century and St. Patrick’s Day is a religious feast day to honour his death and service.
