Just few days ago I had a short visit to recently opened Whiskey distillery in the heart of Dublin.  My brother and his mate were behind this tour introduction and I would like to thank them for inviting me, otherwise this post wouldn’t happen and I wouldn’t be able to share my photo-story with you all.

I have to note, I’m no expert in whiskey and this post isn’t a review about their whiskey selection or taste but rather a quick glance at what I saw inside and atmosphere that I have experienced first hand.

The tour started with a bit of background in whiskey and journey that Teeling distillery took before this was re-build in Dublin city center. Situated in the heart of Dublin, the Teeling Whiskey Distillery is the only distillery in Dublin that is actually operational, in the last 125 years this is the first distillery to open it’s doors to whiskey fans or for anyone with an interest in Dublin’s long, historical association with Irish whiskey.

But to be honest, even if you aren’t a big fan of whiskey, this tour is filled with Irish history, and great expertise from the tour guide will make your stay exceptionally rewarding, not to mention the tasting process at the end.

After a bit of history and viewing few expositions related to history of whiskey we moved to have a quick video in a whiskey-cinema room and made our way to the heart of distillery itself.

The first thing you notice when enter the open floor of distillery is the smell of yeast and fermentation process that welcomes you and truly gives you that real tour feel while embracing your senses. In the distillery you will be guided and full process of whiskey making will be explained. Questions will be answered and photos will be taken 🙂

Teeling is an independent Irish whiskey company dedicated to bringing breadth-back to the Irish whiskey category through small batches of whiskey releases with interesting and flavorsome bottling. Their goal is to revive the independent Spirit Of Dublin. This are just few samples of Teeling whiskey bottling together with aged wooden casks of various scents that are used in production of whiskey.

I hope you all enjoyed my photos, and if this story in any way made you interested or at least curious about TEELING WHISKEY you can easily find them on google maps via this address: 13-17 Newmarket, Dublin 8. Moreover, you can book a tour in advance on their website. I can strongly recommend this as an interesting tour of the day and if by any chance you are doing it on Sunday you are in luck as you might visit a very known Flee Market next door – but that story is for the next time.
