Teeling Whiskey have proudly announced the release of the highly anticipated Teeling Crystal Single Malt!
This innovative expression pushes the boundaries of Irish Whiskey craftsmanship through the use of a highly atypical mash bill and innovative cask maturation techniques, as a limited expression of their Award-Winning Single Malt. This is the World's First Crystal Single Malt Irish Whiskey!
Crystal Malt is created when the sugars that are naturally formed during the traditional malting process are crystallised through heat treatment in a closed system that prevents the moisture from escaping. This produces a highly distinctive toffee-like flavour, along with hints of tropical fruits.
Limited to just 18,000 bottles, the Teeling Crystal Single Malt was triple distilled in their Dublin Distillery, consisting of Teeling Single Malt that was crafted by adding Crystal Malt to the mash bill, followed by a maturation exclusively in Virgin American Oak Casks. Bottled at 46% with no chill filtration for an Irish whiskey of true character!

Jack Teeling, Founder and Managing Director of Teeling Whiskey, commented; "We are delighted to partner with Dublin Airport to bring this exceptional Crystal Single Malt release to global travellers and whiskey enthusiasts. This release is a true embodiment of our commitment to innovation and quality, and we are proud to showcase the best of Irish whiskey craftsmanship."

Taste – A burst of toffee coats the palate, with apple pie spices and fresh pastries, followed by a honeyed sweetness.
