An Irish Whiskey Returns to Its Roots
Whiskey distilleries began in Dublin in the late 18th century. By 1960 he was gone. It is a complex story, but now Dublin is in distilling revival mode. The Teeling Whiskey, which was opened by Walter Teeling in 1782, was re-established in 2012 near its original location by brothers Jack and Stephen Teeling, descendants of the founder. In 2015 he began production of a range of whiskeys. His latest, called Blackpits, has a historical and unusual character. Smoky peat was once used to dry malted barley, and now a gust of smoke from that revived method overlay the subtly honeyed palate of this graceful new whiskey. It is also on the light side, for triple distillation, typical in Ireland.
