Triple distilled in the distillery’s three copper pot stills, Spirit of Dublin Irish Poitín is made from a “traditional” Dublin recipe of both malted and unmalted barley for a “sweet cereal” flavour.
Bottled directly from the still at 52.2% abv with no maturation process, the company describes the release as a “surprisingly smooth spirit” suited to be drunk neat, with water or in a cocktail.
“Poitín is at the heart of all true Irish spirits and will be the base for future whiskey releases from our new distillery,” said Jack Teeling, founder of the Teeling Whiskey Company.
“This Spirit of Dublin bottling gives people a sneak peek at what our new distillery is producing as well as showcasing a modern version of our unique and traditional white Irish spirit.”
Spirit of Dublin Irish Poitín retails at €35 for a 50cl bottle. The product is available from the Teeling Distillery, Dublin Airport and independent off-licences now.
Teeling opened the first new distillery in Dublin for 125 years in March 2015.
