Teeling Whiskey Co has launched an Irish travel retail exclusive Irish whiskey expression. The Gathering is an 11-year-old single malt whiskey that will be available from Cork and Dublin airports.
The whiskey has been aged in Bourbon casks and will be limited to 1,000 bottles.
The Gathering is the name given to a government-backed campaign designed to encourage people with Irish descent to visit the country in 2013.
Earlier this year, Teeling Whiskey Co released another expression into Ireland's travel retail channel. Silver Reserve 21 Year Old Single Malt launched in June, but will roll out into other markets in the coming months.
Since 1782 the Teeling family has been crafting Irish whiskey and for the past eleven years must have been anticipating 2013, the year of the Gathering for today the first consignment of The Gathering, a celebratory bottling of Single Malt Irish whiskey was delivered to The Irish Whiskey Collection at The Loop, Dublin and Cork airports.
The Gathering is a year-long celebration of Ireland, its people and all that is great about its connections, both home and abroad. This unique bottling of 11 Year Old Single Malt Irish whiskey has been produced exclusively for the Irish Whiskey Collection to commemorate this special, year-long event. A handcrafted, small batch release of just 1,000 bottles, The Gathering creates a tangible memento for Irish whiskey lovers and benefactors alike.
Available in 70cl bottles and priced at €69.95, The Gathering is bottled from hand-selected casks of rare Irish Single Malt, aged for over eleven years in Bourbon casks then bottled at 46%, with no chill filtration, producing an Irish Whiskey of true character. It is anticipated that this limited edition bottling of Single Malt Irish whiskey, which is exclusive to The Loop, will be snapped up by passengers visiting friends and family in Ireland during the year of the Gathering or collectors, who will purchase for a special occasion.
The Teeling Whiskey Company is one of the country’s leading Independent Irish whiskey companies, established with the objective of producing small batch whiskeys with greater personality and character traits than many mass market brands.
Jean Ann Taylor, Head of Retail, The Loop, said, “The Irish Whiskey Collection has become a real talking point amongst visitors to The Loop and we are confident that the launch of The Gathering is going to generate real excitement, both in Ireland and overseas.
“The Loop has been involved in many Gathering events this year and it’s fitting that we now have a legacy product to commemorate 2013. The Gathering Irish Whiskey allows us to offer an impressive gift or collectable that will take pride of place in any collection, if it lasts that long.”
Jack Teeling, founder of the Teeling Whiskey Company, said, “We are delighted that we have been able to work with The Irish Whiskey Collection to craft this very special whiskey to commemorate the Gathering. From its robust fruity nose to its layered flavour profile The Gathering bottling is a celebration of everything good about Irish whiskey.”
The Gathering Single Malt Irish whiskey is bottled at 46% ABV without colouring or chill filtration to preserve mouthfeel and flavour. It will be available from August 1st at The Irish Whiskey Collection at The Loop and is available to order online at www.theloop.ie.
For those wishing to make a purchase but not carry the whiskey with them on their journey, they can use The Loop’s Shop & Collect service, which allows passengers to buy online or at the airport and collect their goods on the return journey.
They are stored free of charge at the airport and passengers will receive a reminder text to pick up their purchases on landing at Dublin or Cork airport.
