Teeling Whiskey Release Fifth and Final Bottling in Renaissance Single Malt Series
Teeling Whiskey, Ireland’s leading progressive Irish whiskey is proud to unveil the fifth and final bottling of “The Renaissance”, a limited edition award-winning series of unique 18-Year-Old Irish Single Malts.
The series, launched in 2019, was created to celebrate the true global Renaissance of Teeling, Dublin and Irish whiskey as it continues to be the fastest growing Premium Spirit in the world, supported by the vibrancy from the many new entrants to the category. The Renaissance Series fifth bottling follows the first four award-winning releases all of which have been honoured as some of the best Irish Single Malt whiskeys of recent years.
The Renaissance Series has been a key part of Teeling Whiskey’s range of award-winning Irish whiskeys, which have collected over 350 international awards over the last nine years, including the title of “World’s Best Single Malt” at the 2019 World Whiskies Awards and four “World’s Best Irish Whiskey” honours at the 2021 World Whiskies Awards.
The fifth bottling of The Renaissance Series consists of 18-Year-Old Single Malt that was aged initially in ex-Bourbon barrels for over 12 years before being finished in high quality, ex-Calvados casks for over 6 years.
This dual maturation and, in particular long finishing time in the Calvados casks, imparts a beautiful depth of cinnamon and caramelised apple character, with dried cherries and woody tannin notes. Limited to just 9,000 bottles, the resulting Single Malt is then bottled at 46% with no chill filtration, a signature of all Teeling Whiskeys. Jack Teeling, Founder and Managing Director of Teeling Whiskey, commented; “Like all good things, the Renaissance Series must come to an end. These limited edition Teeling Whiskeys really lived up to their name, as they have been enjoyed and celebrated all over the world including winning some of the top honours for Irish whiskey at International Spirits Competitions over the last few years. For the final release we have hand selected some of our very best 18-Year-Old Single Malt to make sure we end this award-winning series on a high note. We can end this series knowing that the Renaissance of Dublin as the epicentre for world-class, city based whiskey distillation is now firmly re-established with our Dublin distilled Irish whiskey now being celebrated and enjoyed around the world.”
Bottled in a very unique tall decanter bottle, this bottle of Irish Single Malt stands tall and proud on any shelf. With a RRP of €140.00 for a 70cl decanter bottle in gift box, The Renaissance 18-Year-Old Single Malt will be available in Ireland at the Teeling Whiskey Distillery in Dublin 8, The Celtic Whiskey Shop, Irishmalts.com, Shannon Airport and premium independent Irish off licences as well as being rolled out to key International Markets such as the Belgium, UK, Holland, France, Denmark, Italy, Russia and select Asian markets.
