Teeling Whiskey Releases Wonders Of Wood Single Pot Still Series 2

| January 23, 2023

The makers of Teeling Whiskey recently announced the second edition in their Wonders of Wood series of single pot still bottlings.

A prepared statement from Teeling explains that the Wonders of Wood series is part of the brand’s mission to push the boundaries of flavor by using different styles of wood for their whiskey maturation.

The first release in this series was honored at the 2022 World Whiskies Awards, garnering the title of World’s Best Single Pot Still.

This second edition single pot still is made from a recipe of 50% malted barley and 50% un-malted barley, triple distilled in the Teeling Whiskey Distillery in Dublin. It’s then matured in virgin Portuguese oak barrels.

The Portuguese oak is native to the Iberian Peninsula and has a higher than normal tannin content. The distiller notes that when this wood is used for maturation, it produces a savory marmalade flavor with warming hints of tobacco and pepper.

In addition, Teeling is working in collaboration with the Tree Council of Ireland to see that every release in the Wonders of Wood series helps the reforestation of a designated area of woodland in Ireland with exclusively native Irish trees.

The first release allowed for an acre of native oak trees to be planted in the Glencree region of County Wicklow, just outside of Dublin. This second release will allow for a second acre to be planted, this time in County Dublin, again in partnership with the Tree Council of Ireland.

Jack Teeling, founder and managing director, said that wood is an amazing, sustainable and environmentally friendly material that plays a large role in developing the flavor 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,” he said. “So, as part of our new series, we wanted to do our part in helping the replanting of our native Irish forests. Single Pot Still is uniquely Irish and is perhaps the fastest growing style of Irish whiskey in the world. Teeling Whiskey is very proud to be at the forefront of expanding the offering within this unique category of Irish whiskey and helping it evolve through world class releases such as our Wonders of Wood series.”

The second series of Wonders of Wood Single Pot Still is available in Ireland through the Teeling Whiskey Distillery gift shop, the Celtic Whiskey Shop, and in select premium retailers throughout the country. It will roll out to Europe and select Asian markets, as well as released in the U.S. later this year.
