Fallon & Byrne launches new festive partnership with Teeling Whiskey
Retailer announces "more pronounced plan to work with even more independent Irish food and beverage producers in 2024"
2 November 2023
With new creations more important than ever during the festive season, Fallon & Byrne has partnered with Teeling Whiskey to create new Teeling Whiskey Mince Pies.
With prep in full swing since June, Christmas is a six-month affair at Fallon & Byrne. Since then, development chef Hugh Higgins has been busy tweaking a range of recipes across the business and one in particular is this year’s own brand mince pies.
Described as posessing “a buttery, melt in the mouth crust and a hint of boozed up fruit”, Fallon & Byrne is confident they will become shoppers’ “go-to mince pie for the festive season”.
After testing a few batches, Higgins decided a whiskey element played a big part in the flavour of his recipe and he got down to experimenting with a couple of different brands to get the taste just right.
He finally landed on Teeling Whiskey Small Batch, a flavour filled whiskey made with hand-selected casks of grain and malt whiskey which are initially fully aged in ex-bourbon barrels, then married together in Central American Rum casks for up to 12 months. According to the retailer, the slightly sweet notes of vanilla and rum in Teeling Small Batch complement the fruit mix in the mince pies perfectly.
The collaboration with Teeling Whiskey comes as Fallon & Byrne embarks on a more pronounced plan to work with even more independent Irish food and beverage producers in 2024.
Meanwhile, those visiting Fallon & Byrne’s Wine Cellar or first floor Dining Room can also enjoy a Teeling Whiskey Irish Coffee or an after-dinner Teeling Hot Whiskey.
Following the recent launch of a brand-new e-commerce platform and website, Fallon & Byrne now ships all goods nationwide. These can be delivered to shoppers’ door in 24-48 hours (depending on the day of order), packed smartly in Woolcool packaging.
