The 30 Year-Old is believed to be the oldest bottling of Irish Single Malt “recently released”, making this the world’s most exclusive Irish whiskey, believes the company.
The Gold Reserve bottling consists of 26 Year-Old Single Malt Irish whiskey double-distilled in 1987 and matured firstly in Bourbon casks then allowed to marry in White Burgundy wine casks to provide a unique Irish whiskey taste experience. This small batch bottling, limited to only 1,000 bottles, is the first-ever Irish whiskey to be finished in White Burgundy wine casks.
The Platinum Reserve 30 Year-Old bottling has been limited to only 250 bottles. Having been double-distilled in 1983 and allowed to rest for over 30 years in a Bourbon cask, this limited edition whiskey was hand-selected for its distinctive taste qualities. The whiskey has inherited a huge amount of character over its 30-year journey. The Teeling Vintage Reserve 30 Year-Old Platinum bottling is exceptional not only in taste but also in its rarity, according to the company.
“We are extremely proud to be able to release some of the oldest-ever bottlings of Irish Single Malt with our Vintage Reserve Collection,” commented Jack Teeling, founder of the Teeling Whiskey Company.
The Gold Reserve 26 Year-Old will retail for approximately €475.00 and the Platinum Reserve 30 Year-Old for approximately €1,500.00.
The products are initially only available in Ireland through Dublin Airport and the Celtic Whiskey Store at present but there are plans to roll them out to select international markets and travel retailers.
